Game 2 Box Score (.pdf) | Game 3 Box Score (.pdf)

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech baseball started Atlantic Coast Conference play in style, taking 2-of-3 from Notre Dame with a 15-2 win in Game 2 and a 17-4 setback in Game 3 in the Saturday doubleheader at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium.

Game 2: Georgia Tech 15, Notre Dame 2

The Yellow Jackets (13-3, 2-1 ACC) jumped out of the gate with crooked numbers in each of the first four innings to build its lead.

At the plate, Drew Compton led the way of six multi-hit days, going 2-for-3 with three RBI, while Angelo Dispigna and Jackson Finley had two hits and drove in two apiece – Finley with a home run to boot.

Stephen Reid also went 2-for-4 with an RBI double, while Jake DeLeo and Jadyn Jackson also provided two-hit days. Also driving in runs were Brandon Prince, John Giesler, Jack Rubenstein and Kristian Campbell.

Meanwhile, on the mound, Tech only needed two pitchers, with Finley turning in a terrific start. He opened the door with 4.2 innings of one-run, three-hit ball, striking out two, setting up RHP Luke Schmolke (2-0). The freshman righty went the rest of the way, turning in 4.1 innings of two-hit, one run work, striking out five overall to pick up his second decision of the season.

The Fighting Irish (6-6, 1-2 ACC) were led by Jack Penney, who went 1-for-5 with an RBI double. Starter RHP Radek Birkholz (0-1) received the loss, surrendering five runs on four hits in just 1.1 innings pitched.

Game 3: Georgia Tech 4, Notre Dame 17

After securing the series, Georgia Tech was unable to muster the same amount of run support as Notre Dame poured on seven through the opening three frames.

Tech used eight arms on the day with started LHP Josiah Siegel (1-2) receiving the loss. He surrendered five runs on three hits in 1.0 innings of work.

At the plate, Stephen Reid got off the schneid, going 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI. Angelo Dispigna also went 2-for-4, while Nicholas Romano had an RBI single.

Notre Dame was led by Carter Putz, who went 3-for-5 with two RBI. Aidan Tyrell (2-1) received the win, going 4.0 innings with just two hits allowed.

Georgia Tech now heads out on the road, traveling to Auburn on Tuesday, March 14. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on SEC Network.
