Box Score (.pdf)

THE FLATS – No. 16 Georgia Tech baseball outlasting Georgia on the mound, taking the 4-1 win on Sunday in front of 8,000-plus at Coolray Field in the 20th annual Spring Classic for the Kids, benefitting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

The Yellow Jackets (10-2) got a fine start from RHP Jackson Finley, who limited the Bulldogs (9-3) to just one run on two hits in 4.0 innings, striking out four overall. RHP Ben King (2-0) then came in to pitch the fifth, sixth and seventh, surrendering just two hits and no walks while punching out three to get his second decision of the year.

Sophomore RHP Terry Busse then earned his fifth save of the season, pitching six outs to close – five of which were strikeouts.

In the pitching duel, hits came at a premium, but Tech managed to get five. Angelo Dispigna drove in two runs on a key single to right field after Nico Senese singled, Jett Lovett walked and Jake DeLeo reached on a fielder’s choice without an out recorded.

Drew Compton returned for his first game since Opening Weekend to pinch hit and DH, drawing a bases loaded RBI walk in his first at-bat. Nicholas Romano also added a key insurance run on a sac fly to plate Jack Rubenstein. DeLeo, Rubenstein and Finley all recorded hits on the day.

UGA was led by Charlie Condon, who was 1-for-4 with an RBI. Starter RHP Nolan Crisp (1-1) received the loss after allowing two runs on two hits in 2.0 innings of work.

Georgia Tech returns home for four straight games at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium, beginning on Tuesday, March 7 against Lipscomb. First pitch is set for 4 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra.
