2012 NCAA Baseball Gainesville Regional, Georgia Tech Vs. Florida Final Score: Yellow Jackets Fall 6-2

Georgia Tech fell to No. 1 overall seed Florida 6-2 in the Gainesville Regional, and now they are facing elimination on Sunday.

Not only did Georgia Tech lose but their manager Chris Coskey was ejected from the game for arguing a play at second base in the fifth inning. Coskey felt that the Florida player was tagged out and furthermore bailed out the base runner for calling time since both players were banged up.

Scoring got started by Georgia Tech got out to a 1-0 lead when shortstop Mott Hyde hit a RBI single to left field which scored Zane Evans.

Florida quickly responded in the third inning to tie the game, and then went on to score three more runs in the fourth inning to go up 4-1. That was all the scoring that Florida would need as Georgia Tech was only able to score one more run in the game which was on an Evan Martin RBI single.

Florida in similar fashion from earlier in the game scored on their next turn at the plate and put up two more runs in the top of the ninth inning to make it 6-2 to put the game away.
