Box Score (.pdf)

KENNESAW, Ga. – Junior right fielder Stephen Reid remained hot, going 3-for-4 with a double, but it wouldn’t be enough as Georgia Tech baseball fell 6-5 to Kennesaw State on Wednesday night at Stillwell Stadium.

Reid gave the Yellow Jackets (28-20) its lone extra-base hit as it totaled nine hits overall on the night. Drew Compton turned in two hits and an RBI, while Jake DeLeo also drove in a run.

Tech’s five runs all came in a wild fifth inning as the Jackets scored on a balk, fielder’s choice, single and an error to start the inning before two RBI singles by Reid and Compton rounded out the effort.

LHP Camron Hill got his fourth start of the season and had two runs score on five hits in his 2.1 innings. RHP Dawson Brown then came in and went 1.2 no-hit innings before turning the ball over to RHP Jackson Vaughan. Vaughan had three runs cross against him on two hits including the lone homer of the game in 2.0 innings. LHP Dalton Smith (2-2) pitched well despite having the winning run cross against him, going 2.0 innings of two-hit ball.

The Owls (23-24) were led by Brayden Eidson, who hit the two-run homer. RHP Nolan Sliver (2-2) got the win with 2.2 innings scoreless while RHP Blake Aita got the save.

Georgia Tech continues its five-game road trip when it travels to No. 10 Duke on May 12-14. First pitch on Friday is set for 6 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra.
