Jeremy Farrell hit two home runs, but it wasn't enough, as the Cavalier baseball team fell to Georgia Tech on Friday, 14-8. The loss moves Virginia and the Yellow Jackets back into a tie for the fifth spot in the ACC, which will be decided in Saturday's rubber match.
Georgia Tech's offense was the story tonight, as the Jackets put up 14 runs on 19 hits. Tony Plagman went 3-for-5 from the plate with 4 RBI, finishing just a single shy of the cycle.
Pat McAnaney got the start for Virginia, and lasted just three and two thirds innings, giving up six runs on eight hits and striking out six. Georgia Tech posted four run frames in both the fourth and the sixth inning to seal the win.
The two teams conclude their respective regular season on Saturday, as they finish their three game series. First pitch is set for noon. The winner of tomorrow's game will clinch the fifth seed for the ACC Tournament, and third place in the Coastal Division.
