Coach Hall on Dusty Isaacs
[quote]A senior captain, and a guy with tremendous leadership ability that[apos]s been valuable for us on and off the field. He[apos]s thrown a lot of big innings in a lot of different roles and could end up in the rotation again this year. Ideally for me, he[apos]s always been best in our bullpen and I[apos]m hoping he[apos]s that guy for us this year.[quote]

Appeared in 17 games and made a career-high 16 starts in a career-high 82.2 innings… Fanned 67 against just 33 walks… Was named the ACC Pitcher of the Week on April 1 after a brilliant outing versus Wake Forest… Gave Tech his best career start versus the Demon Deacons on March 30, matching his career-high of seven innings with a career high eight strikeouts — he allowed just one hit and no runs in the start and his two walks came in the first inning… He retired the final eight batters he face in the Wake Forest win… Was lights out in two innings of relief at Georgia Southern on Feb. 27 to preserve Tech[apos]s 9-8 lead en route to the 14-8… He retired all six batters he faced in succession on just 27 pitches with four strikeouts versus GSU… Picked up his second win by going six innings with one run and matching his season high of six strikeouts against Rutgers on March 2… Matched his career high of seven innings, allowing just four hits and two runs with six strikeouts to beat Boston College on March 16… Made the start at No. 5 Florida State — his 50th career appearance as a Jacket — and pitched four innings, allowing four runs but got no run support from the offense and absorbed the decision in the 11-3 loss… Gave the Jackets another solid effort on April 6 at Duke, working 5.1 innings with five hits, one run, one walk and four strikeouts — Tech won the game, 2-1, thanks to an eighth-inning RBI single from Thomas Smith… Took a no-hitter into the sixth inning at Clemson and turned a 2-0 lead over to the bullpen after going 6.1 shutout innings with two hits allowed — Tech saw that lead evaporate in a 4-3 loss in 11 innings… Fanned seven over 4.1 innings versus Coastal Carolina on May 3 but did factor in the decision in the 7-4 loss… Gave the Yellow Jackets a quality start versus No. 2 North Carolina on May 11 (7.0 innings, seven hits, two runs), but received no run support and was on the wrong end of a 3-1 Tech loss.

Made 11 starts over the first half of the season, but emerged as a reliable bullpen option over the final month of the season… Finished the year 6-4 in 18 appearances… Worked 66.0 innings with 46 strikeouts, 71 hits allowed and pitched to a 6.55 ERA… Posted a 3.86 ERA over his final six appearances of the season (16.1 innings) with 10 strikeouts against four walks… Allowed the Jackets to exact revenge on Kent State (2/18), firing a career-long seven innings and allowing just five hits, one earned run, one walk and three strikeouts in a 6-2 victory… Improved to 2-0 after a 5.2-inning outing against Ohio State (2/26), giving up five hits and three runs with three strikeouts… Improved to 3-0 versus Rutgers (3/4)… Went six innings and allowed just three hits and two runs with seven strikeouts to beat the Scarlet Knights… Pitched two scoreless innings with three strikeouts and one walk to preserve the lead in a 9-1 win over Virginia Tech (3/18)… Pitched five innings, allowing just three hits and one run in a winning effort in the series-finale at Boston College (3/24), a 2-1 Tech win… Was moved to the Saturday spot for the Florida State series and gave the Jackets a gutsy effort versus the No. 2 Seminoles, pitching 4.2 innings with six strikeouts and turning a 6-3 lead over to the bullpen with two outs in fifth (Tech lost 12-7)… Earned the win vs. Georgia State (4/17) with a two-inning start on a staff day… Allowed just one hit in 3.1 scoreless innings of relief at No. 22 Virginia, in a 4-2 loss (5/12)… Worked two innings in the win over Virginia in the ACC Tournament… Finished the season with arguably his best effort of the year, working 5.1 scoreless relief innings in an 8-4 win over College of Charleston in Tech[apos]s NCAA Gainesville Regional opener… Allowed just three hits versus the Cougars with four strikeouts and no walks in the winning effort.
