OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Auburn and Alabama were both on the diamond in Oklahoma City on Saturday for the Women's College World Series.

Auburn played Georgia for a spot in the semifinals.  After the Tigers swept in a regular conference series, this time the Bulldogs were out for blood.

Georgia lead 3-1, but Auburn wasn't having it.

Top of the Seventh, with runners on the corners, SEC player of the year Kasey Cooper knocked a double into right and the Tigers narrowed that deficit to one.

Batter up, Emily Carosone singles to right and the tying run scores, the Tigers finally coming alive.

Jade Rhoads was able to ground to second, allowing Kasey Cooper to score putting the Tigers ahead 4-3.

Auburn came from behind to beat Georgia.  The Tigers advance to the Semifinals playing tonight at 6 p.m. on ESPN2.

Alabama fought valiantly against LSU in a loser's bracket game last night, but the Bayou Bengals dominated.

The Tide tried to rally in the sixth, with bases loaded Kallie Case grounded to second bringing a runner home and that closed the gap slightly.

The Tide fall just short of a comeback, 6-4 the final score.  Alabama is eliminated and LSU stays alive

 

 

"The margin of error when you get here is the tiniest of all sports. You have to play clean and then get the key hit and we didn't get that." said Tide Head Coach Patrick Murphy.
