ATLANTA, Ga. - - Georgia Tech's Mike Trapani singled in Whit Robbins with two outs in the bottom of the eighth to help the Yellow Jackets rally to defeat Virginia, 7-6, Saturday afternoon in the second game of the Atlantic Coast Conference series opener. Jeremy Farrell led the Cavaliers (14-4, 0-2 ACC) at the plate going 3-for-3 with three RBI including his first career home run as UVa out-hit the Yellow Jackets, 13-8.
David Adams hit his third home run of the season and finished 2-for-3 with three runs scored and three RBI. Brandon Guyer, Brandon Marsh and Tom Hagan each added a pair of hits for the Cavaliers. Jacob Thompson started the game for the Cavaliers. Thompson tossed 5 1/3 innings and struck out five, while allowing three runs on three hits. He walked four and left the game with the Cavaliers ahead, 5-2. Michael Schwimer pitched 2/3 of an inning and gave up two runs on two hits, before giving way to Casey Lambert in the seventh. Lambert suffered his first loss of the season as he gave up two runs on three hits and had three strikeouts.
Jeff Kindel and Trapani both had two hits for the Yellow Jackets (16-0, 2-0 ACC). Tim Gustafson picked up his first win of the season holding the Cavaliers scoreless in 1 1/3 innings of work. Lee Hyde started for Georgia Tech and left after giving up five runs on eight hits in four and 2/3 innings.
Trapani's game-winning hit just got over the head of a leaping Adams at second base and dropped into right field. Robbins scored from third for the go-ahead run. Robbins led off the bottom of the eighth with a double down the left field line and moved to third on an error. Luke Murton grounded out to third base and Lambert struck out Steven Blackwood to put UVa one out away from ending the inning. Trapani then singled in the game-winning run.
Virginia threatened in the top of the eighth to break the 6-6 tie. With two outs, Marsh singled to left field and moved to third on Sean Doolittle's single to left center. After Adams was intentionally walked, Guyer hit into a fielder's choice to end the inning.
Wes Hodges' three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh tied the game, 6-6.
Georgia Tech scratched across a run in the bottom of the sixth to pull within, 5-3. After Thompson had retired 15 consecutive batters, Kindel singled to right field. Matt Wieters and Robbins then walked. Kindel scored on a wild pitch for Georgia Tech's third run.
Adams' third home run of the season gave the Cavaliers a 3-2 lead in the top of the third. Farrell's third RBI made it 4-2 after he singled to right field to score Adams, who drew a walk with two outs. After Hagan intentionally walked to load the bases, Guyer slid safely into home on a wild pitch to put the Hoos ahead, 5-2.
Farrell homered down the left field line with Adams on base to tie the game, 2-2, in top of the second inning.
The Yellow Jackets took an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first. After an infield single from Danny Payne, Kindel's one-out RBI single brought in Payne for the first run of the game. Murton's sacrifice fly scored Kindel with the bases loaded for the second run of the inning.
Virginia and Georgia Tech wrap up the three-game series Sunday at 1 p.m. Sophomore left-handed pitcher Sean Doolittle will face George Tech lefty Tim Ladd.
