ATLANTA - Arden Jobe hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the seventh to lead Georgia State to a 5-4 win against Chattanooga Wednesday at the Bob Heck Softball Complex.
Jobe’s solo home run led off the home half of inning after Chattanooga scraped a run across in the top of the seventh to tie the game at 4-4.
Georgia State loaded the bases in the bottom of the first but couldn't push a run across. GSU loaded the bases again in the second and this time capitalized as Reagan Morgan and Megan Litumbe hit back-to-back RBI-singles to put GSU in front 2-0.
Chattanooga scored on a solo home run in the top of the third to make it 2-1. The Mocs then scored a pair of runs in the top of the fifth to take a 3-2 lead.
With one out and Ivie Drake on third, Litumbe laid down a surprise bunt and Drake beat the tag at home to give GSU a 4-3 advantage.
Chattanooga's game-tying run in the top of the seventh came on an error by Jobe, but the first baseman got redemption in the bottom half with the walk-off dinger.
Mandy Chance picked up the win as she pitched the final 2.1 innings after Kinsley Jennings held the Mocs to three earned through the first 4.2 frames.
Georgia State hosts rival Georgia Southern this weekend for the final three game of the regular season before heading to Louisiana for the Sun Belt tournament.
The series against Georgia Southern starts Friday at 6 p.m. and continues Saturday with a doubleheader at 1 and 3 p.m. Saturday is Senior Day for the Panthers as GSU's six seniors will be honored following the final game of the series.
