Auburn celebrated a walk-off win over Georgia in extra innings on Thursday night.

The game almost ended in a loss for Auburn before the team mounted a 3-run comeback in the 9th inning to send the game to extra innings. Auburn needed a shift in momentum and that happened. Several hits and a key Georgia error helped extend the game to extra innings, which kept Auburn’s comeback alive.

In the bottom of the 11th inning, Auburn had the bases loaded with 2 outs when catcher Carter Wright stepped to the plate. It was an important moment for Wright to seal the win for the Tigers. He stepped up to the plate and patiently worked out a 4-pitch walk that brought home the winning run in the 11th inning.

While it was an unconventional method to deliver the game-winning run, it worked for Auburn against an SEC rival. Thursday’s win marked the 1st game of a 3-game set vs. Georgia this weekend. Thursday’s win moved Auburn to a 15-6-1 record in 2023. The win also marked the team’s 8th comeback win and 3rd walk-off win this season.

Auburn began conference play last weekend against Arkansas and will continue to mostly play SEC competition for the remainder of the season. Auburn and Georgia will continue their weekend series on Friday at 7 p.m. ET.
