Clock strikes 3 for LSU softball, helps Tigers beat Georgia
BATON ROUGE - The LSU softball team scored 7 runs in the 6th inning, and a drop-dead curfew helped the Tigers hold off Georgia 13-11 on Sunday afternoon.
The bizzare finish was set up before the game by the Bulldogs, who said they would have to stop playing at 3pm.
As stated by the rules, if an inning isn't finished at the drop-dead time, the score reverts to the previous completed inning.
The Bulldogs led after the 5th inning, and after scoring four more in the top of the 6th, LSU looked like they were finished.
The Tigers responded with 7 runs in the bottom of the frame, and with the clock approaching the drop-dead time of 3pm, Beth Torina had her team intentionally give up their third out to make the inning count.
With the win, the Tigers (24-18, 6-9) have won their second-straight series over a ranked opponent.
