Box Score

ATLANTA – Tim Ladd pitched five shutout innings and teamed with four relievers on a four-hitter to lead third-ranked Georgia Tech (6-0) to a 5-1 win and three-game sweep of Kennesaw State (1-4) on Sunday at Russ Chandler Stadium.

Georgia Tech’s pitchers allowed just two earned runs in the three-game series.

Ladd (1-0), a sophomore, earned the win in his first collegiate start. The left-hander worked a career-high five innings and held the Owls scoreless on three hits. He issued two walks and struck out one.

Brad Rulon, Tim Gustafson and Matt Wieters each worked a hitless inning of relief.

Wes Hodges and Whit Robbins each had two hits for the Yellow Jackets.

Ladd and Kennesaw State starter Kyle Muschara (0-1) blanked the opposing offenses for the first four innings before the Yellow Jackets finally broke through to take a 3-0 lead in the fifth.

Michael Fisher drew a one-out walk to start the fifth inning rally, and a pinch hit single from Wally Crancer put runners on first and third bases. Danny Payne followed with a RBI double, Crancer scored on a passed ball, and Payne came home on a two-out RBI single from Jeff Kindel.

Tech added two runs in the sixth inning on RBI singles from Andy Hawranick and Ryan Tinkoff to make the score 5-0.

Kennesaw State broke up the shutout in the eighth inning on a two-out RBI double from Matt Nelson off Tech reliever David Duncan.

Muschara took the loss, working 4.1 innings and allowing two runs.

Georgia Tech hosts East Tennessee State for a two-game series beginning on Tuesday at 4 p.m.
