Beesball Falls to Duke 6-0

Ben Parr's performance was simply not good enough to match up with Drew Van Orden's complete-game shutout - Danny Karnik/Georgia Tech Athletics

We're going to need some help from Miami now in order to get to the Championship game.

Ben Parr pitched pretty well against the Blue Devils on Thursday, but his performance could not match up with Duke starter Drew Van Orden.

It was a miserable day for the Georgia Tech offense. They never really seemed to have anything going. Only one player (AJ Murray) had more than one hit. Mott Hyde's 36-game reached-base streak and Ryan Peurifoy's 8-game hitting streak both came to an end. And now, Georgia Tech is going to need some help from the team that Georgia Tech just beat on Wednesday (Miami) in order to get to the Championship game.

In order for Georgia Tech to make it to the ACC Championship game on Sunday, first of all, the Yellow Jackets must beat Clemson. The way that this tournament was laid out made it into a double-elimination tournament. Secondly, the Yellow Jackets are going to need some help from Duh U. Right now, Georgia Tech and Duke are both 1-1 in the ACC tournament (excluding GT's play-in game vs. Wake Forest). So for Georgia Tech to get into the game, Duke must lose another game so that Georgia Tech will not have to worry about Duke holding a tiebreaker over them.

A lot could happen in the next couple of days. Can Beesball make it to the ACC Championship game? How does it feel to want Duh U to win?
