OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. -- Not even the red-hot Georgia softball team could derail Auburn at the College World Series on Saturday.

The Tigers beat the Bulldogs 4-3 scoring three runs in the seventh to win for the 11th time in the last 12 games.

Kasey Cooper and Emily Carosone each drove in a run to tie it up before a Jade Rhodes groundout gave Auburn the lead.

Auburn improved to 56-10. Georgia, who has had a storybook run in the postseason, fell to 46-19.

Auburn will play again at 6 p.m. Sunday at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium against a second-round survivor.

The game started with promise for Auburn. Leadoff hitter Tiffany Howard reached and scored on an Emily Carosone sacrifice fly in the first. The Tigers could have added on, but left seven runners on in the first four innings.

Georgia took advantage, scoring single runs in the second, third and fourth innings.

Auburn had more than that in the seventh with the clutch RBIs from Cooper, Carosone and Rhodes.
