NCAA Baseball, Atlanta Regional: Georgia Tech Downs Southern Miss To Stay Alive

The Georgia Tech offense failed to take advantage of opportunites last night in the loss to Austin Peay. Today against Southern Miss was just the opposite, as the Yellow Jackets jumped out early with five runs in the second inning to cruise to a 6-2 victory. 

Jed Bradley, with a dozen or so MLB scouts in the building, put up an impressive performance. The expected first round draft pick pitched 7.2 innings allowing eight hits and two earned runs. He only walked one while striking out four. He scattered the eight hits quite effectively, and even those were of the bloop variety and were not hard hit balls.

Right fielder Brandon Thomas had a great day at the plate for the Jackets, hitting his third home run of the season in the second inning, a three-run shot, and followed that with a triple in his second at-bat.

Georgia Tech will give the ball to Buck Farmer when the Jackets face the loser of tonight's Austin Peay and Mississippi State matchup Sunday at 3 p.m.
