THE FLATS — Georgia Tech baseball was unable to keep the run going, falling 4-1 to Auburn in the Atlanta Regional finale on Sunday night at Russ Chandler Stadium.

On the mound, freshman RHP Cort Roedig had a terrific start, throwing 4.0 innings of two-hit ball before a nearly two-hour rain delay. Seniors Micah Carpenter, Jake Lee, Keyton Gibson finished the game, with Lee and Gibson refusing to surrender an earned run over the final 3.1 innings.

Leading the Tigers (36-25) offensively was Ryan Bliss and Rankin Woley with two hits apiece. On the mound, LHP Bailey Horn (4-0) got the win after 6.0 scoreless innings and Cody Greenhill got his 11th save of the year.

Representing Tech on the Atlanta Regional All-Tournament Team was McCann, English, Luke Waddell and Nick Wilhite.
