Georgia ends losing streak with 6-4 win over Furman

FROM STAFF REPORTSFebruary 25, 2014 

ATHENS, Ga. -- The Georgia Bulldogs ended a four-game losing streak with a 6-4 win over Furman Tuesday.

The Bulldogs took a big four-run lead in the bottom of the second inning thanks to a run brought in on a fielder's choice by Sean McLaughlin, a run by Daniel Nichols on a passed ball, a sac fly for an RBI by Stephen Wrenn and a run by Conor Welton.

Furman narrowed the gap by scoring three runs in the top of the fourth, but a sacrifice fly for an RBI by Skyler Weber in the fourth and a run on a groundout by Jess Posey in the fifth put the game out of reach for the Paladins.

Robert Tyler picked up the win for Georgia. He threw for five innings and gave up one run on two hits with six strikeouts and a walk.

The Bulldogs (2-5) will host Georgia State Wednesday at 5 p.m.
