Jones Shines as Tech Evens Series vs. Miami

THE FLATSSenior two-way standout Cam Jones threw a 111-pitch complete game in addition to recording four hits as Georgia Tech baseball downed Miami (Fla.), 9-4, on Saturday afternoon at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium.

Jones (3-1) just surrendered six hits in the effort, while striking out seven and walking none as the Yellow Jackets (26-15, 10-10 ACC) scored nine unanswered to start the game.

Payton Green hit a bases-clearing double in the first to kickstart the game before an RBI double by Jones in the third made it 4-0. Then in the fifth, John Giesler tacked on another run on a fielder’s choice, Mike Becchetti hit a two-run single and Trey Yunger’s sacrifice fly added four more.

At the plate behind Jones, Carson Kerce also had a multi-hit day, going 2-for-3.

The Hurricanes (19-23, 8-15 ACC) got on the board by chipping away at the lead with two runs in the sixth and a run in the seventh and ninth. They were led by Daniel Cuvet, who went 2-for-4. LHP Rafe Schlesinger (2-4) received the loss, allowing eight runs on eight hits in 4.1 innings of work.

Georgia Tech and Miami will square off in a rubber game on Sunday, April 28. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra. Tickets can be purchased by visiting ramblinwreck.com/tickets or by clicking HERE!
