ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia looked to be in position to knock off top-ranked Vanderbilt on Sunday. But it was not to be, as the Bulldogs let a 2-1 lead slip away late, falling to the Commodores 4-2.
With the victory, Vanderbilt (27-6, 10-2 SEC) swept the three-game series from Georgia (18-15, 5-7). Bulldog starting pitcher Jared Walsh was in position for the win, tossing six innings while allowing only one run, two hits and recording five strikeouts. Relief pitcher Bo Tucker (0-1) ended up taking the loss for Georgia, as he gave up three runs on four hits in just one and one-third innings of work.
Leadoff man Ro Coleman was the hero for the Commodores, as he notched the go-ahead, two-run double to left field in the top of the seventh to give the visitors the decisive 4-2 edge.
Georgia returns to action Tuesday, heading on the road to face Clemson. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. ET.
