THE FLATS – RHP John Medich had a career day on the mound to ignite Georgia Tech baseball’s pitching, as they took down No. 3 Miami in a Friday night pitchers duel, 3-1, at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium.

Medich (4-3) gave the Yellow Jackets (26-17, 11-11 ACC) a career-long 6.0 innings and 101 total pitches, holding the third-ranked Hurricanes (31-11, 16-6 ACC) to just one run on three hits as he tied his career-high of six strikeouts. The strong pitching continued when RHP Dawson Brown took over and surrendered just two hits over the next 1.2 innings before passing the baton to RHP Zach Maxwell, who earned his second save by punching out two over 1.1 innings to close.

In support of the pitching, Tech took the lead on a 447-foot mammoth home run by Andrew Jenkins in the fourth, before Kevin Parada hit his 22nd home run of the season on a solo bomb to dead center. The Jackets then manufactured the third run on a Jadyn Jackson base hit before Parada drove him in for his 73rd RBI.

Miami was led by CJ Kayfus, who finished 2-for-5 with an RBI. LHP Carson Palmquist (6-3) received the loss after surrendering two runs on five hits over seven innings.

Georgia Tech will now take on Miami on Saturday, April 30 for its ALS Awareness Day. First pitch is set for 4 p.m. and will be nationally broadcast on ESPNU.

Postgame Notes:

  • Kevin Parada’s home run marks the third-straight game with a home run and third homer of the week (two on Tuesday). He now has 22 on the season, tying him for fourth all-time in Georgia Tech history (Andy Bruce, Jason Varitek, J.J. Thomas).
