THE FLATS – Syracuse pitcher Sydney O’Hara tossed a one-hit shutout to lead the Orange past Georgia Tech, 1-0, Friday at Mewborn Field. Georgia Tech fell to 18-9 overall and 7-7 in the ACC, while Syracuse improved to 11-14 on the season and 4-3 in league action.

The Orange pushed the single run across the plate and broke the 0-0 tie in the bottom of the sixth inning. Shirley Daniels doubled to left and scored pinch runner Kristina Kinsey.

Tech’s hit came in the fourth inning as Kanani Cabrales smacked a double to right center, but the Yellow Jackets couldn’t capitalize with runners on base, stranding five throughout the game.

O’Hara (8-5) absorbed the win, walking three and striking out 12.

Kylie Kleinschmidt (11-5) suffered the loss, surrendering one run on six hits with nine strikeouts in a complete-game effort. Despite giving up six hits, the Tech defense backed up Kleinschmidt with a handful of diving catches.

The Orange stranded 10 runners on base, two in every inning except the third, when Hayley Downs completed a double play from centerfield. With one out in the third frame, Downs dove to catch a shallow fly ball in right centerfield and fired to first to get the second out.  

The Jackets and Orange wrap up the three-game series with a doubleheader Saturday beginning at 2 p.m. at Mewborn Field.
