TOP HEADLINES

LSU KEEPS IT MOVING

The LSU Tigers took two of three from the Ole Miss Rebels this weekend, earning yet another series victory. It’s their second consecutive series victory in as many weeks, having defeated Mizzou in Columbia the week before. The series victory puts LSU at 32-7 and 7-4 in the conference, which puts them right at fourth place with a two game edge over Auburn in the loss column.

The win on Friday was a 19-inning marathon in which LSU won thanks to the bat of Amanda Doyle. Doyle blooped a single that scored Taryn Antoine to put the Tigers in the win column. They then walked them off again on Saturday, as Shelbi Sunseri hit a leadoff home run in the bottom of the 7th inning for the only run of the game.

LSU’s Allie Walljasper won SEC Pitcher of the Week honors. She threw all 19 innings in Friday’s marathon, which was an inhuman performance to say the least.

GEORGIA EARNS SERIES WIN OVER MIZZOU

Cortni Emanuel and the Georgia Bulldogs picked up another series win this weekend. Emanuel and the Dawgs defeated the Missouri Tigers two out of three times to improve to 11-4 in conference play and 35-5 overall. They are now one game back of Florida in the loss column for first place in the Southeastern Conference.

The Dawgs mashed a total of 16 runs over the course of the weekend. They won 8-6 on Friday and then 7-2 on Sunday, following a 5-1 loss in between. The aforementioned Emanuel went 7-11 at the plate out of the leadoff spot with four runs scored and one RBI. Justice Milz went deep for the 11th time this season on Friday. Also in Friday’s win, Kendall Burton and Ciara Bryan each racked up triples.

FLORIDA KEEPS PACE WITH SERIES WIN OVER ‘BAMA

While Georgia is hot on their heels, Florida is still in first place after this weekend. UF defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide two out of three times to take a series win from the Tide.

The Gators were led primarily by the SEC’s Freshman of the Week, Danielle Romanello. Romanello was integral in UF’s win on Monday, as she went 2-2 with a double and a homer. Those were the only two hits of the entire game for Florida. So, her impact was certainly felt.

In their 6-1 win on Saturday, Florida had four players to register at least one RBI. Aleshia Ocasio recorded three of her own, while Jordan Matthews, Hannah Adams and Sophia Reynoso were responsible for the other three.

MAGUIRE HELPS LIFT SOUTH CAROLINA OVER ARKANSAS

The South Carolina Gamecocks racked up a series win over Arkansas this weekend. That was primarily because of the play of shortstop Kenzi Maguire.

Maguire, the SEC’s Player of the Week, hit an even .500 in 14 at-bats this weekend. She scored three runs and drove in two runs, meanwhile, as she was a dominant force at the plate.

The series win was extremely important for South Carolina, as the Gamecocks sit third in the SEC standings now at an 8-4 mark.
