SEC

#18 LSU 5  #14 Georgia 1
WP-Cody Trahan LP-Erin Arevalo
An always important match-up, made the more so because LSU is second in SEC West to Alabama, and Georgia is third in SEC East to Florida.  Trahan was sharp, notching a first pitch strike on 17 of the first 18 batters.  Arevalo was off her usual stride, high counts on several batters and walking in a run with bases loaded.  Rachel Mitchell set a new LSU record with her 33rd homer, a 2-run blast, which broke the mark set by All American Leslie Klein.  Trahan who improved to 12-2 allowed five hits.  LSU is now 40-10, 18-5.  Georgia is 40-9, 17-7. LSU and Georgia will play Friday at 4 and 8, the latter game on ESPNU.  SPY note: tonight’s report was delayed while SPY watched this game on ESPN.  Beth Mowin and Jessica Mendoza make an effective combination; Jess is one of the best analysts in the game.
