Day two of the ACC Tournament is done, capped off by the longest game in tournament history. Below you can find quick recaps of all three games, championship scenarios for every team in Pool B, and an updated schedule.
No. 5 Miami defeated No. 4 North Carolina 7-5
The Hurricanes overcame a 5-0 deficit to the Tar Heels, scoring seven straight runs in the final four innings to get the victory. Miami second baseman Zeke DeVoss is on quite the roll recently, having reached base 11 times consecutively over the span of two games. On Thursday, he was 4-for-4, driving in three runs while walking twice and picking up three stolen bases. Not a bad day. Miami faces Virginia in the first game on Friday, while North Carolina gets Wake Forest under the lights.
No. 2 Florida State defeated No. 6 Clemson 6-3
Florida State gave Clemson just its sixth loss over the last 32 games, beating the Tigers 6-3 on Thursday afternoon. FSU right fielder James Ramsey drove in four runs and starting pitcher Sean Gilmartin allowed three runs in 6.0 innings to get the win. The Seminoles faces a tired Georgia Tech squad Friday at 3 p.m. and Clemson gets a day off before battling NC State Saturday morning.
No. 3 Georgia Tech defeated No. 7 NC State 6-5 (15 innings)
While definitely not the prettiest game ever, Thursday's finale was more than entertaining, lasting an ACC Tournament record 15 innings. The game saw 488 pitches, took five hours and seven minutes to complete, and had 51 players used. The two teams had their chances throughout but struggled with runners in scoring position. The winning run in the 15th was a straight steal of home plate by Georgia Tech freshman Mott Hyde, one of the more incredible postseason plays in recent memory. Georgia Tech has a quick turnaround and will play FSU Friday afternoon, and NC State gets more of a chance to recover before playing Clemson on Saturday.
Pool B Scenarios: All four teams in Pool B have now played two games, giving us a clear picture about what need to happen for each team to make the championship game on Sunday.
Georgia Tech: The Jackets need to win and have NC State beat Clemson on Saturday.
