THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech softball team (7-11, 0-3 ACC) fell to Louisville (8-5, 3-0) in the series finale, 15-2, in six innings Sunday. The Jackets are back in action Wednesday at Troy for a single game slated for 6 p.m. ET. 

“We have to get better overall physically and mentally,” head coach Shelly Hoerner said. “We will continue to put in the time to improve upon every aspect of our game.”  

The Cardinals jumped out to a 5-0 lead through the first 1.5 innings with one run in the first inning and four in the second frame. 

 

The Jackets got on the board in the bottom of the second inning after Maddie Lionberger drew a walk, moved to second on a ground-out and scored on a single up the middle courtesy of Karly Fullem.

Louisville tacked on another run off a solo home run in the third to make it 6-1.

 

In the fourth inning, Courtney Ziese made it a four-run game, 6-2, with a solo shot over the right field wall for her fourth round-tripper of the season. 

The Cards didn’t let up, putting up a pair of runs in the fifth and securing the game with seven runs in the sixth inning. 

The Jackets used three pitchers in the loss with Christina Biggerstaff (3-2) as the pitcher of record. Biggerstaff allowed five runs with four strikeouts in 2.1 innings of work.
