Box Score (.pdf)

THE FLATS – With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth, Oscar Serratos sent a rocket to the left-center gap to clear the bases and put Georgia Tech baseball ahead 8-7 over Notre Dame on Sunday afternoon at Russ Chandler Stadium.

The Yellow Jackets (19-9, 7-5 ACC) started out hot early, scoring five runs in the first before the Fighting Irish (11-14, 6-7 ACC) fought back with two runs in the fifth, seventh and eighth to take a 7-5 lead heading into the bottom of the eighth.

Tristin English (2-0) threw the final two innings of the game, allowing just one hit and one earned run while striking out two to get the win. Notre Dame’s Joe Boyle (1-2) punched out five hitters in 2.1 innings of work, but surrendered the three-RBI double to receive the loss.

Offensively, Tech was led by Serratos with two doubles for four RBI overall. English also finished with two hits while Baron Radcliff finished with two RBI as well. Notre Dame was led held to just one multi-hit effort for the second-straight day as Daniel Jung finished 2-for-5 with two RBI.

Georgia Tech now heads briefly on the road as they take on No. 12 Auburn on Tuesday, April 2. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on SEC Network Plus.
