Tech into ACC baseball finals

The Georgia Tech baseball team is in the ACC championship game for the first time since 2005 after a 5-1 defeat of Clemson in the Jackets’ final pool-play game Saturday in Greensboro, N.C. Entering the tournament as the No. 8 (lowest seed) with a 12-18 league record, the Jackets won all three of their pool-play games, riding the superior play of first baseman/pitcher Jake Davies.

Saturday, Davies hit a two-run home run in the first inning – his fourth in three tournament games – that gave Tech a 2-0 lead that it did not relinquish. Davies also gave the Jackets six innings, holding the Tigers to one run, before Alex Cruz finished with three scoreless innings to seal the win.

Tech will play the Pool B winner at noon in Greensboro, N.C., for the league championship, which would be the Jackets’ eighth overall and coach Danny Hall’s fourth. Freshman Josh Heddinger is expected to pitch for the Jackets.

Tech’s opponent has yet to be determined. North Carolina’s 7 p.m. game against N.C. State will determine the opponent. If North Carolina wins, Miami will advance. If N.C. State wins, the Wolfpack will play for the title.

Oh, if I had a barrel of rum
and sugar three thousand pounds
a college bell to put it in
and a clapper to stir it ’round
I’d drink to all the good fellows
who from far and near
I’m a ramblin’ wreck
from Georgia Tech
and a helluva engineer

It’s a wonder I can remain such good friends with my Clemson fan cousin since we wreck their plans so often. Oh I know why. He’s a grownup.

If NC State wins and plays us tomorrow, they’re going to be drained after having to play tonight, especially in a game like they are playing. That makes our chances look pretty good.

Softball (won)
Women’s Basketball (lost)
Golf (won)

UOAD, it’s gonna take a homer to win it, because even when they either team has gotten somebody on base, they have ended up leaving them there. Did you see the Miami players there? I wonder if any Tech players were there too
