Georgia Tech made the trip to Auburn, Alabama for a little midweek action. It was a game where the Yellow Jackets knew it would be a good challenge for them. They came out hot, but unfortunately down the stretch, it started getting out of hand.
Starting RHP Ben King pitched for 2.2 innings. King gave up four runs on six hits, while waking two batters and striking out two batters. In relief, LHP Cody Carwile was the last pitcher in relief, who received the loss. Carwile was apart of the stellar trio, that only allowed three hits between RHP Jackson Vaughn and RHP Terry Busse. But allowed the game-winning walk-off run for the Tigers, in the twelfth inning.
At the plate, Jake DeLeo led the way with five hits and scoring three runs on the night. Also contributing, Drew Compton drove in four runs on three hits, for a game-high. Stephen Reid ended the night with four hits, while Jack Rubenstein finished with three hits. Lastly, Nicholas Romano and Kristian Campbell ended the night with two hits apiece.
Behind a stellar offensive night, let’s not forget to add, that Georgia Tech recorded a career-high eight double on the night. The last time the Yellow Jackets were able to accomplish that, was against Wake Forest in 2009.
Georgia Tech will continue their road trip, as they head to Kentucky, as they will take on the No. 2 team in the country. The Louisville Cardinals.
First pitch is scheduled for this Friday night at 6pm and will be broadcast live on the ACC Network Extra.
