Georgia Tech blanks Vandy to stay alive
Philadelphia, PA – Josh Heddinger pitched a complete game shutout to lead the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to a 5-0 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores in the Nashville Regional Final.
Heddinger allowed just two hits, as well as six walks and struck out three batters for Georgia Tech (37-26). Mitch Earnest had just a single hit in the game but it was a two-run home run.
The Yellow Jackets got to the regional final by defeating Illinois, 6-3, earlier in the day. The win against Vanderbilt sets up an elimination game on Monday with the winner advancing to Super Regionals to face Louisville.
