Jackets Fall in Heartbreaker to Miami, 5-4

Box Score (.pdf)

MIAMI – Despite jumping out to a four-run lead, No. 25 Georgia Tech was unable to hang on, falling 5-4 to Miami on Sunday afternoon at Mark Light Field.

The Yellow Jackets (25-20, 19-14 ACC) used a John Anderson sac fly and back-to-back home runs from Tres Gonzalez and Kevin Parada to build a four-run advantage heading into the sixth. The Hurricanes (29-16, 17-15 ACC) then scored a lone run in the sixth and four runs in the seventh to take the lead after LHP Sam Crawford left the game due to injury.

Tech was led by a terrific start from true freshman RHP Marquis Grissom, Jr., who went 5.1 innings and allowed just one run on four hits, while striking out four. Offensively, Justyn-Henry Malloy was the lone multi-hit performance at 2-for-4 with a double.

Miami was led by Adrian Del Castillo, who went 2-for-4 with two RBI, while Spencer Bodanza (1-0) received the win with a shutout inning and Carson Palmquist getting the six-out save.

Georgia Tech returns home to close out the 2021 regular season, hosting the sold-out finale of Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate against Georgia on Tuesday, May 18 before the final ACC series against North Carolina on May 20-22. First pitch on Tuesday is set for 6 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra and WREK 91.1 FM.
