The Yellow Jackets took the series against the Deacons of Wake Forest yesterday as they won the rubber match in the 12th inning thanks to a Jake Davies sacrifice fly. Final scores for the games were 5-1 (Mark Pope pitches a gem), 4-6, and 6-5.
The Jackets can continue to solidify their position within the ACC as long as they continue to win series. Add in a sweep or two, and we're all set.I'd pull up the current standings if I could but the ACC's website is down...actually so is ramblinwreck.com and other ".cstv" sites. uhoh.
Edit: I can now access the standings. Here they are below. Remember the top two teams from each division and then the next top four teams, regardless of division, are selected for the ACC Tournament.
|(As Of April 18)|
Georgia Tech will travel to Mercer on Tuesday in Macon. The teams played each other earlier this year and Mercer beat the then #6 team in the country and stopped the 16-game winning streak that Tech had put together.
The Jackets will return to home this weekend for a series against the Boston College Eagles. Let's take the sweep. Don't forget! The spring game is April 23rd and the baseball game has been pushed up so fans may go to the spring game and then immediately walk over to catch the game at Russ Chandler. Make a Georgia Tech day out of Saturday!
