Box Score (.pdf)

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech baseball couldn’t grab the big hit when it needed it, falling 8-5 to Wofford on Tuesday night at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium.

The Yellow Jackets (14-7) stranded 16 runners on base, including four innings ending with bases loaded, while finishing 3-for-14 overall with runners in scoring position. The Terriers (15-5) were hard-pressed to be kept off the scoreboard as well, able to jump out to a 4-0 lead in the second, then tacked on runs in the fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth.

Overall, Tech used five pitchers on the day. LHP Camron Hill surrendered the four in the second inning in just his second career start and second appearance since injury. RHP Aeden Finateri (1-1) then surrendered just one run in 3.0 innings with two strikeouts to receive the tough-luck losing decision.

RHP Terry Busse, LHP Cody Carwile and RHP Jackson Vaughan then covered the final four innings (Vaughan pitching two), allowing one run apiece.

The Jackets did muster 15 hits on the night with five multi-hit performances. Kristian Campbell and Stephen Reid led the way with three hits apiece, while Campbell also drew two walks. Jake DeLeo, Angelo Dispigna and Jadyn Jackson all finished with two hits, with DeLeo, Campbell, Dispigna (two) and Reid driving in its five runs.

Wofford was led by Ryan Galanie, who went 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run. RHP Lucas Mahlstedt (2-0) received the win, pitching 3.2 innings with one run on three hits. RHP Matthew Marchal picked up his first save of the year.

Georgia Tech continues its homestand when it hosts ACC foes Clemson on March 24-26 at Mac Nease Baseball Park. First pitch on Friday is set for 6 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra.
