In Tuesday night's quarterfinal game, both undefeated Louisiana and Georgia met to settle the score with Georgia coming out to on top 16-3.

Riding a late inning heroic comeback on Monday night, team Louisiana looked to quiet the loud bats of team Georgia.

In the first inning of action the Georgia team decided it did not want to go quietly, after both lead off batter Austin Crown and Michael Taylor took Louisiana pitcher Heath Sadler deep.

Giving their team a quick 2-0 advantage, the Georgia boys added three more after Mitchell Borror added a three-run shot to the home run derby.

In the bottom of the first, team Louisiana inched their way back into the game as Clayton Cline hit his second home run in two games to put his team on the board. Able to get one more run in the third inning and another in the seventh, the offense was not strong enough to match the powerful team Georgia.

Banging out hit after hit, the Georgia offense scored in all but the second and the sixth innings.

Gathering two runs in the fourth after a hit batsman RBI followed by a fielder's choice, team Georgia took a 7-1 lead.

Plating one more in the fourth off a RBI single by Brexton Rogers, Georgia followed it up with a three run fifth.

Recieving back-to-back RBI doubles by Crown and Will Price, and another fielders choice by Heath Durand, Georgia extended its lead.

Taking the sixth inning off to catch their breath, team Georgia unloaded the rest of their artillery by scoring five runs in the seventh inning.

After an RBI double by Durand that scored Price and Spencer Duffie, Borror hit his second home run of the night to give his team a 16-2 advantage.

Able to get one run back in the bottom of the seventh, team Louisiana fell to team Georgia 16-3. Team Georgia plays South Carolina at 8 p.m. today.
