Megan Gregg sets RBI record for UT

Tennessee Lady Vols softball senior Meghan Gregg set a new school record in dramatic fashion Saturday night, with a walk-off, hit-by-pitch RBI in a 1-0 win over Georgia. See her record-setting RBI after getting hit by a pitch ’I’m definitely humbled to be in the record books, even close to anybody in there,’ said Gregg, who is from Williamson, Ga. ‘But if I was having to choose breaking a record of winning a world series, I’d definitely pick a world series any day.’ The No. 7-ranked Lady Vols (31-4, 4-3 SEC) held the No. 6-ranked Bulldogs (29-4, 7-3) to just three hits after Georgia entered the game leading the SEC with a .364 batting average and UT entered last in the league with an ERA over 6.00. Tennessee pitchers Caylan Arnold (4 innings) and Matty Moss (14-1) combined to prevent the Bulldogs from getting a runner to second base before an overflow capacity crowd listed at 2,292 at Less Stadium. Gregg also doubled earlier in the game off Georgia ace Brittany Gray (15-1), who went the distance allowing just two hits while fanning five and walking four. Gregg, who entered the game leading the nation with 50 RBIs, passed Tonya Callahan (2005-08) with 242 RBIs. Gregg is one home run away from tying Callahan for all-time home runs at Tennessee (51). The Lady Vols play Georgia at 5 p.m. on Easter Sunday and conclude the series at 7 p.m. on Monday. Both games are on the SEC Network. Watch an interview with Gregg after the game
