Georgia Tech falls to Georgia in Athens

Tech was off course at the plate, picking up just four hits (all singles) and striking out 15 times. Meanwhile, Georgia’s 3-4-5 hitters were 6-for-9 with three RBIs, a home run and a double.

The Jackets have now lost four in a row after getting swept this past weekend at Notre Dame. They are 4-10 when the opponent scores first.

“We got behind early again, and it kind of felt like we’d get back in it, but didn’t,” coach Danny Hall said. “They did a good job of pitching to us, and we couldn’t get a hit to kind of get back in the game.”

Tech fell to 16-15 and has a weekend series coming up with No. 2 Louisville beginning Thursday at Russ Chandler Stadium.
