It took nine innings Tuesday, but defending national champion and top-ranked Oklahoma (34-1) saw its 40-game winning streak end, falling 7-6 to Georgia in the first game of their doubleheader.
No. 21 Georgia (28-11) brought in two runs in the bottom of the seventh to make it a tie ballgame. Then redshirt-sophomore Jaden Fields, younger sister of former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, hit a walk-off single in the ninth, bringing in Jacqui Switzer from second base.

It’s Georgia’s first win over a top-ranked opponent since defeating Florida in the 2016 NCAA Super Regional in Gainesville.
Oklahoma came back to win the second game in the series 12-0 in five innings, but the damage was already done.
The Sooners are back in action Friday, April 23 with a three-game home stand against Texas Tech.
