Jackets Take Series Over Boston College with 3-1 Win

Box Score

THE FLATS – Crosby Huckabay went 2-for-3 with an RBI triple to lead Georgia Tech to a 3-1 win over Boston College on Sunday at Mewborn Field. The Yellow Jackets won two of three against the Eagles for their first ACC series win of the season.

How it Happened: Emma Kauf led off the game with a double and later came around to score on a two-out Tricia Awald single to put Tech up 1-0 early. Tech struck again in the third when Huckabay’s triple off the top of the center field wall scored Awald, and the Jackets added one more on a Breanna Roper single that plated Huckabay. Boston College loaded the bases in the fifth with AJ Alatorre at the plate, who hit a solo shot an inning earlier, but reliever Madison McPherson induced a 4-6-3 double play to end the threat and retire the side. Starter Blake Neleman pitched four and a third innings while allowing just one run to earn her eighth win of the season, and McPherson picked up the save. Awald and Roper were each 1-for-2 with an RBI.

Up next, Georgia Tech makes the short trip for a midweek game against Mercer, before returning home next weekend to host ACC foe Clemson.
