Georgia Tech-Florida live blog

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Having won Friday, Georgia Tech has a little margin in this double-elimination tournament, but not really. Here’s why:

If Georgia Tech loses to Florida tonight, the Jackets will need to beat the Gators twice after first having beaten College of Charleston Saturday afternoon in what will presumably warm conditions.

Then they’ll have to beat Brian Johnson, who is merely ranked the No. 39 draft prospect by Baseball America. The problem with that is, Danny Hall will have to either use Josh Heddinger or Jake Davies to beat the Cougars in the elimination game. (which is another matter: If Tech loses, who would be the wiser choice – Heddinger or Davies? Davies is probably the better pitcher, and thus might be better saved for Florida, but Tech can’t play Florida if it can’t beat College of Charleston)

And then, even if Tech beats Florida Sunday night, the Jackets will be out of starters.

So, again, Tech needs this one tonight pretty badly. Enjoy the game.

What’s wrong with Mott the Hoople (SS) just lollipop the ball over 2nd basenam head–not even trying to get d’play on almost tailor made ball. Then no time out call. Why didn’t someone throw to second or walk over & tag runner out. Then Hall got ejected for nothing.
