ATLANTA (AP) -- Zach Von Tersch allowed one run on four hits in
six innings and Charlie Blackmon drove in the go-ahead run in a
four-run eighth inning that carried Georgia Tech to a 5-1 victory
over Youngstown State.
The Yellow Jackets swept the three-game season-opening series
for both team by yielding only one run, following 14-0 and 1-0
victories in the first two games of the series.
Youngstown ended a streak of 19.2 scoreless innings when Eric
Marzec opened the second inning with a single, advanced to third on
Dustin Wachter's single and scored on a two-out single by Sean
Tech tied it in the second on Tony Plagman's home run, his first
of the season.
Tech put the game away in the eighth inning. Chase Burnette
singled, Chris House sacrificed and Derek Dietrich singled to send
Burnette to third. Blackmon's fielder's choice broke the 1-1 tie
before Luke Murton added a two-run single and Patrick Long RBI
