March 30, 2002

Box Score

RALEIGH, N.C. – Brian Burks tossed a five-hit shutout and Matt Murton drove in two runs to lead sixth-ranked Georgia Tech (22-4, 3-2 ACC) to a 3-0 victory over NC State (19-11, 1-5 ACC) in the second game of the doubleheader at Doak Field on Saturday afternoon. The Yellow Jackets won the first game 20-12 with a 12-run seventh inning, which was highlighted by a grand slam from Murton, who had seven RBI in the two games.

Murton had two hits and two RBI, to add to his two-hit, five RBI performance in the first game of the doubleheader.

Jeremy Slayden led off the sixth inning by getting hit by a pitch, and Tyler Parker moved him to second base on a single. Murton then drove a long single to left field to score the two runners. Tech received an insurance run in the top of the ninth inning on a RBI single by Victor Menocal, which extended his career-high hitting streak to 24 games.

Burks (6-2) pitched a complete game shutout for Georgia Tech, the first of his career and the first by a Yellow Jacket hurler since 1998. He had five strikeouts in the game, while allowing no walks and no runs.

NC State starter Daniel Caldwell (5-3) also went the distance in the loss, allowing three runs on nine hits while striking out six.

Georgia Tech will return home for a two-game series with Georgia Southern beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday night at Russ Chandler Stadium. Live scoring for the game will be available at www.ramblinwreck.com.
