ATLANTA – After falling behind 2-0 early, Georgia State’s softball team would score three unanswered to win 3-2 at Georgia Tech Wednesday evening at Mewborn Field.
Georgia Tech struck early with a two-run home run in the bottom of the first to take a 2-0 lead, an advantage the Yellow Jackets would hold onto until the top of the fifth.
Caitlin Ray started off the fifth with a walk, bringing freshman Skylar Mosel to the plate. Mosel then smashed a no-doubt home run that went over the scoreboard in left field to even the score at 2-2.
The two-run shot was the second home run of the freshman’s career.
Mandy Chance settled in after the first inning and finished with 6.0 innings of work, allowing only one earned on three hits to earn her fourth victory of the season.
Litumbe sent a line drive into center field to score Morgan from second and give Georgia State the 3-2 lead.
Kinsley Jennings entered the circle for the bottom of the seventh and things got interesting as GT put the tying run on third and the winning run on second with just one out.
Jennings settled in and got a big strikeout followed by a groundout to get GSU the win and pick up her third save of the year.
Georgia State sweeps the regular-season series against the Yellow Jackets and have won six of the last eight contests.
Up next for GSU is a three-game home series against Sun Belt-foe Troy starting with a 5 p.m. first pitch Friday followed by a doubleheader Saturday.
