Georgia battles back in 9th, but falls in 12 innings to No. 4 LSU

ATHENS — Georgia went toe-to-toe with the best pitcher in the nation and rallied in the bottom of the ninth to take LSU to extra innings, but it wasn’t enough.

The talented No. 5-ranked Tigers beat the Bulldogs 8-5 in 12 innings on Thursday night, casting more doubt on Georgia’s fading NCAA tournament hopes.

“I’m proud of the way they fought, but it’s a loss, and we’re not going to take any solace in a close loss,” Georgia 10th-year coach Scott Stricklin said. “We felt like we had our chances to win and just didn’t take advantage of them. There are no such thing as morale victories.
