The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have failed to advance from their home Regional in two straight College World Series, and the third attempt is on to a worrying start. The Jackets stranded approximately 2,500 men on base in a 2-1 losing effort against the Austin Peay Governors that also saw Mark Pope leave the game early with what appeared to be a side injury.
The Mississippi St. Bulldogs took the early game over the Southern Miss. Golden Eagles, 3-0. They'll get Austin Peay in the winner's night game at Russ Chandler Stadium, while Tech has put itself in the tough position of needing a win over a good Southern Miss team to avoid being the first squad eliminated.
