Perry, Prince Lead No. 3 Georgia Tech Past East Tennessee State, 10-6

Box Score

ATLANTA (May 10) – Freshman Philip Perry tossed seven strong innings and junior Bryan Prince had four hits and two RBI to lead third-ranked Georgia Tech past East Tennessee State, 10-6, on Wednesday, May 10, night at Russ Chandler Stadium.

The victory lifted Georgia Tech (40-13) to the 40 win plateau for the fifth time in seven seasons under head coach Danny Hall.

Perry (3-0) limited the Buccaneers to three unearned runs on just two hits while recording six strikeouts. The seven-inning effort was the longest of his collegiate career.

The Yellow Jackets took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning with a pair of RBI singles from Mark Teixeira and Jason Basil. However, East Tennessee State tied the game with a pair of runs in the top of the third with RBI groundouts from Jeremy Terry and Danny Pugh.

Georgia Tech’s Jahmal Overton made the score 3-2 with a RBI single in the fourth, and Yellow Jackets broke the game open with four more runs in the fifth inning. Prince made the score 4-2 with a RBI double in the inning and Victor Menocal drove in three runs with a bases loaded double down the left field line.

East Tennessee trimmed the lead to 7-3 when Ed Sparks scored on a Derik Goffena error in the top of the sixth, but the Jackets immediately put two more runs on the board in the bottom of that inning to make the score 9-3.

Tech’s Jason Basil had three hits in the game, while Teixeira, Goffena and Overton added two hits apiece. ETSU was led by a three-hit night from Sparks and two RBI from both Pugh and Nathan Copeland.

The Buccaneers’ Reid Casey (5-8) took the loss in relief, allowing five runs in two innings of work.

Georgia Tech returns to action on Friday afternoon when the Yellow Jackets open a three-game Atlantic Coast Conference series at Wake Forest at 2 p.m.
