Auburn vs Georgia Highlights | Baseball - April 30, 2021

Auburn scored seven runs in innings 12 through 14 to ultimately defeat No. 20 Georgia, 10-6, in 14 innings and even the series Friday night at Foley Field.

Ryan Dyal hit the go-ahead RBI double to get the scoring started in the four-run 14th. Ryan Bliss followed with a two-run home run to left center – his 10th of the year – and Rankin Woley capped off the frame with a solo homer off the batter's eye – his sixth of the season.

Will Morrison (1-0, 0.75) recorded the final eight outing for the Tigers, allowing just one unearned run, and earned his first career win.

"I just think about a program that's done what we've done the three or four years," head coach Butch Thompson said. "Since 2017, you've played at least in a regional final ever year. A program as special as Auburn, we can stomach a span like we've been through.

"What a program can't stomach, and what our people can't stomach, and what a coach can't stomach is just not competing with your heart every single day, letting the chips fall where they may at the end, and I got that today from our ballclub."

The 14-inning game was the team's longest since going 15 innings against Arkansas in 2019.
