The Georgia Little League Softball team's first game was moved because of rain Friday night, but Saturday the girls were ready to hit the field. Georgia faced Florida in day two of play at the Southeastern Regional Little League field.
The Sunshine State girls got on the board first, with the first three in the line-up making contact and eventually coming home.
"I saw what they had and what type of pitches they were hitting in the first inning and I came back and adjusted the second inning with that pitcher," explained Georgia Manager Mike Phillips. "
Georgia was not giving up that easy. They answered with two runs in the second inning. Ashley Walker reached home on a wild pitch for the first run. Then, Megan Frank stepped up to the plate and slammed an RBI single to score Skye McKinney.
After the second inning, the Georgia bats went quite.
"Hindsight 20-20, I should have kept the same pitcher in and went ahead and burned her out today," said Phillips. "The other pitcher did great, but I had to adjust their pitching too and figure out which ones I could pitch. I mean they just hit. Florida is a good hitting team."
Georgia continues action Saturday at 10a.m. against Alabama.
