Baseball:

The Yellow Jackets outscored the Xavier Musketeers 26-11 over the weekend but only came away with 2 wins.

Saturday was an unleashing of power as the Jackets pummeled the visitors 15-0 and only allowed two hits. Friday and Sunday resulted in a 1-run win and a 1-run loss, respectively. The loss will surely be labeled as "disappointing" because this was Xavier's first win of the season and also marked a season high in runs for the Musketeers.

But let's let bygones be bygones and look to the future. The Jackets return to action this Wednesday Tuesday at Russ Chandler Stadium against Western Carolina. Tech has split the last four meetings with the Catamounts. Tech will host Rutgers this weekend for the annual 3-game series as well.

Softball:

This past weekend saw the softball team in Columbus, GA as participants in the NFCA Leadoff Classic. Four of the nation's Top 8 teams were represented in the event. Over the weekend, the Jackets went 4-1 beating Central Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana-Lafayette and Iowa. The team was shutout by the Nebraska Cornhuskers 2-0 late Friday night.

The Tech softball team is now 13-2 and will be a participant in the Buzz Classic in Woodstock, GA this upcoming weekend.
