Sophomore second baseman Richard Lewis added three hits forthe Jackets, while driving in three runs, as he improved hisACC-best batting average to .497, and hitting streak to 26 games.

The Citadel (24-12) opened up the scoring in the top of the first, as a single by Philip Hartig gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead, which held until the bottom of the third.

Tech (28-8) broke the game open with four in the third and six in the fourth, as the Jackets knocked out Bulldogs’ starter Eric Talbert (2-2) en route to building a 10-1 lead.

The nine-run cushion was more than enough support for Tech starter Ben Sheeter (1-2). The senior southpaw allowed just three runs, two earned, and six hits over seven innings while picking up his first victory of the season.

The Bulldogs climbed to within 10-3 in the fifth on a two-run home run by Hartig, before a Brad Stockton solo home run in the bottom of the fifth, and single runs by the Jackets in the seventh and eighth innings provided the final margin of 13-3.

Stockton and Victor Menocal also compiled three-hit games for the Jackets, who slapped out 19 hits as a team in the contest. Jason Basil collected a double and a triple, while driving in three runs.

Georgia Tech returns to action on Friday night at 7 p.m. as the Jackets host Virginia in the opener of a three-game Atlantic Coast Conference series at Russ Chandler Stadium.
