Last year Georgia eliminated Auburn from the SEC tournament. This afternoon it was Auburn that sent the Bulldogs packing as the Tigers won an elimination game in dramatic fashion 3-2.

In the third inning Mr "Do it all" Justin Bryant hit a solo home run as a designated hitter and then took the mound in the eight and threw 1-1/3 scoreless innings of relief to knock the Dogs out of the tournament.

Georgia had trailed 3-0 in the eighth inning but scored twice on two RBI singles.

Bryant faced a two out bases loaded situation in the ninth and got Colby May to line out to Bobby Andrews in left to seal the win.

Auburn freshman Daniel Koger (4-5) got the win and was aided by an errorless defensive effort by the Tigers.

Coach Pawlowski said, "Justin Bryant is one of the truest competitors we have on the team. He swung the bat and got on the mound. I am really pleased with our club tonight."

Auburn improved their record to 31-27 and more importantly lives to play another day. But the most important thing for this writer is Auburn Beat Georgia!

Man I love the sound of that. I do love to beat them Dogs.

Auburn will now take on the winner of the South Carolina- Vanderbilt game tomorrow at 4:30pm. The game will be broadcast on CSS.

Go Tigers!
