ATHENS, Ga. -- A strong pitching performance and a big day at the plate propelled Georgia (12-5) to an 8-2 victory and series sweep over Lipscomb (9-7) on Sunday at Foley Field.

Georgia starter Connor Jones (3-0) earned the victory after tossing six scoreless innings and collecting a career-high eight strikeouts while only allowing two hits.

Freshman Logan Moody and sophomore Keegan McGovern led the Bulldog offense to eight runs on 13 hits. Moody hit his first career home run in the sixth inning and his four hits were the most by a Bulldog in a game this season. McGovern chipped in two hits and two more RBIs to his team-leading 19 RBIs.

After scoring one in the first, Georgia broke the game open with a four-run third inning. The inning was highlighted by McGovern's two-RBI single and Michael Curry's two-RBI double. The Bulldogs scored two more in the sixth behind Moody's home run and an RBI double by Mike Bell. Mitchell Webb hit his first-career triple in the seventh and scored on a Skyler Weber single to cap Georgia's scoring.

Lipscomb's Brady Puckett (3-1) was credited with the loss after allowing five runs (one earned) on seven hits with four walks and two strikeouts across five innings. The Bison broke up Georgia's shutout bid on Lee Solomon's two-run home run in the eighth inning.
