Georgia defeated Georgia Tech 8-6 on Sunday evening in the final of the Athens Regional.

The win assures the Bulldogs a spot in the Super Regionals next week. It also avoids a winner-take-all game with the Yellow Jackets, which would have been played on Monday.

Instead, Georgia has won a regional for the first time since 2008 and is now just 2 wins away from clinching a spot in Omaha for the College World Series.

Here’s the final out of the game:

It took a major comeback for the Bulldogs to pull off this win. Georgia fell behind 5-2 after the 2nd inning but was able to make things interesting down the stretch.

Georgia trailed 5-4 entering the 9th inning, but got a game-tying solo home run from shortstop Kolby Branch. Tre Phelps also homered in the 8th inning and was a big reason for the Bulldogs’ comeback.

After Georgia Tech loaded the bases with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th, UGA was able to get out of the jam. Then in the top of the 10th, UGA scored 3 runs thanks to a Georgia Tech error and a 2-out, 2-RBI double by Corey Collins.

The Yellow Jackets did fight back in the 10th, loading the bases with no outs to get a rally started. However, they were only able to push 1 run across before UGA ended the threat.

As the No. 7 overall seed, Georgia will host NC State in a Super Regional next weekend in Athens.
