Vols hold off Bulldogs


By JEFF LATZKE

OKLAHOMA CITY Erinn Webb hit her second career grand slam and Tennessee held off a late rally to beat Southeastern Conference rival Georgia, 7-5, last night at the Women's College World Series.

The Lady Vols (49-13) never scored more than four runs in a game during three World Series trips with Monica Abbott, the NCAA's career leader wins and strikeouts. But this is a far different team.

With freshmen making up more than half the roster, Tennessee is manufacturing runs in bunches. The Lady Vols used the mercy rule in beating Arizona, 9-0, in their opener, then jumped out to an early seven-run lead against the sixth-seeded Bulldogs (49-12).

Ashley Razey led Georgia's comeback bid with an RBI single in the fifth and a three-run home run off of freshman Ivy Renfroe (31-4) in the seventh.

Tennessee advanced to the next round tomorrow. Georgia will play today against an opponent to be determined.
