BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The No. 15 LSU softball team was able to bounce back from a loss in game one to win both games of a doubleheader on Sunday, May 7, to beat No. 11 Georgia in the final series of the regular season.

The Tigers (40-14, 13, 11 SEC) run-ruled the Bulldogs (39-12, 16-7 SEC), 9-1, in six innings in the final game. They edged the Bulldogs, 2-1, in the second game of the series after falling 3-1 in the first game Friday.

LSU pitcher Ali Kilponen, designated hitter Georgia Clark, and head coach Beth Torina talk about winning the 3-game series against the Bulldogs.

“It was an incredible senior day,” said head coach Beth Torina. “To see a couple of seniors in Ali Kilponen and Georgia Clark have the day they had today was awesome. It was a great way to end the five years they’ve spent here at LSU.”
