Box Score (.pdf)

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Early walks and traffic on the base paths proved costly as No. 21 Georgia Tech baseball fell 18-9 to No. 2 Virginia, dropping the series, on Sunday afternoon at Disharoon Park.

The Yellow Jackets’ (17-11, 5-7 ACC) troubles on the mound ultimately led to a 10-run fourth inning that pushed the Cavaliers (25-3, 9-3 ACC) up 13-4. Overall, Tech used six arms with starter RHP Marquis Grissom, Jr. (1-3) allowing six runs on three hits and five walks in 3.1 innings to receive the loss.

At the plate, Georgia Tech was able to produce 14 hits, including multi-hit performances out of the first six hitters in the lineup. Andrew Jenkins continued his terrific weekend, crushing his third home run of the series in addition to a double for two RBI. Stephen Reid went 2-for-5 with two RBI, while Tres Gonzalez, Kevin Parada, Colin Hall and Tim Borden II had two hits with Gonzalez, Hall and Borden driving in runs on the day.

Virginia was led by Griff O’Ferrall, who finished with two hits and four RBI. Starter LHP Jake Berry (4-0) received the win after allowing five runs on seven hits in 5.2 innings.

The Yellow Jackets return home for five-straight games. First up at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium will be USC Upstate on Tuesday, April 5. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra and WREK 91.1 FM.
