Box Score (.pdf)

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech baseball combined for 16 hits with seven shutout innings from junior Connor Thomas to power past Notre Dame, 11-2, in Game 2 on Saturday afternoon at Russ Chandler Stadium.

The Yellow Jackets (18-9, 6-5 ACC) broke out of the gates on fire, putting up eight runs through just two innings, while the Fighting Irish (11-13, 6-5 ACC) were held to just six at-bats with runners in scoring position.

Thomas (4-1) gave another quality start for Georgia Tech, fanning 10 batters and issuing zero walks while Notre Dame’s Cameron Brown (1-3) received the loss.

Offensively, the Jackets had six multi-hit performances, highlighted by a 3-for-5, three RBI day for Kyle McCann. Colin Hall provided the power with a rocket over the center-field wall for two RBI, while Tristin English (two RBI), Oscar Serratos (two RBI), Luke Waddell and Austin Wilhite all finished with two hits.

Notre Dame was led by just one multi-hit effort as Daniel Jung finished 2-for-4. Jack Zyska and Jack Alexander also recorded two doubles.

Georgia Tech will try to take the series on Sunday, March 31 as it faces Notre Dame in the rubber match at Russ Chandler Stadium. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. and will be broadcast live on ACC Network Extra.
