THE FLATS – Georgia Tech baseball earned its fourth Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week on Monday when Jackson Finley earned the honor for his terrific week at the plate and on the mound.
Finley helped the Yellow Jackets go 3-2 on the week, belting four home runs for nine RBI while also drawing three walks. Hitting .356 from designated hitter and first base, Finley also slugged 1.214 with a .471 on-base percentage.
The Richmond Hill native also took the rubber on Sunday, getting his third start and going 4.0 strong innings against archrival Georgia at Coolray Field. He held the Bulldogs’ offense to just two hits with four strikeouts to put his season ERA at 1.38.
Finley joins teammates Jake DeLeo (Feb. 20), Dawson Brown and Angelo Dispigna (Feb. 27) as Georgia Tech’s Collegiate Baseball National Players of the Week, making it three-straight weeks the Jackets have had a selection.
Georgia Tech will have a four-game homestand this week, beginning against Lipscomb on Tuesday, March 7 at 4 p.m. The Yellow Jackets then begin Atlantic Coast Conference play when they host Notre Dame on March 10-12.
