Here is your ACC Recap for April 26th.
Georgia 6 #13 Georgia Tech 4
ATLANTA, GA. — On a night when injured Bulldog Johnathan Taylor returned briefly to watch his team in action, Georgia responded with a 6-4 win over ninth-ranked Georgia Tech Tuesday in front of a crowd of 18,156 at Turner Field.
Powered by a five-run outburst led by junior shortstop Kyle Farmer (2-for-5, 3 RBI), the Bulldogs improved to 7-2 all-time in the “Spring Baseball Classic” against the Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech (30-11) had won the two on-campus meetings earlier this year, but on Tuesday, the Bulldogs picked up their SEC-leading 11th win over a ranked opponent. Bulldog junior Tyler Maloof notched his SEC-leading 14th save, pitching a scoreless ninth frame.
#18 Clemson 5 Furman 0
Clemson, SC – Brad Miller went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBIs, and Justin Sarratt tossed 6.0 scoreless innings of four-hit ball to lead #23 Clemson to a 5-0 victory over Furman at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Tuesday night. The Tigers improved to 26-14 overall, while the Paladins dropped to 19-24 on the season.
The Tigers scored two runs in the first inning and three more in the third inning on Miller’s three-run homer. Both teams’ pitchers settled and kept batters at bay during the rest of the game, which lasted just two hours and 15 minutes.
Boston College 8 Harvard 0
BOSTON, Mass. – The Boston College baseball team won its second straight Beanpot championship and 10th overall with an 8-0 win against Harvard Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
The 10 Beanpot titles are the most among the four participants.
Five different pitchers combined for the second BC shutout of the season. Junior Andrew Lawrence got his second win of the year after throwing 3.0 innings and allowing one hit. Senior Nate Bayuk and junior Matt Brazis both threw 2.0 innings while senior Garret Smith and sophomore Hunter Gordon tossed an inning.
Virginia Tech 5 NC A&T 4
BLACKSBURG, Va. – Johnny Morales does it again. This time he comes through with a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to plate the winning run as Virginia Tech continues its winning streak with a 5-4 victory over North Carolina A&T Tuesday night at English Field.
Morales, who drove in the game-winning runs in Tech’s only extra inning contest this season – a 9-6 victory at Liberty back on March 22 – came to the plate with the bases loaded and no one out. He laced the first pitch he saw through a five-man drawn-in infield to plate Zac MacAneney.
