For the third season in a row, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets baseball will fail to advance from its own Regional. For the second time in three years the Jackets have fallen to a Mississippi school, and for the second-straight year it's a SEC West team. The Mississippi St. Bulldogs won 7-3 and will take their road warrior show on the road next weekend, with the Florida Gators already securing a Super Regional bid, making the SEC pair the nation's first two teams to reach the next round.
Flurries of errors helped do in the young Jackets squad, with second baseman Mott Hyde and shortstop Jacob Esch contributing a pair each. Missy State's Nick Routt held Tech to just four hits in his first eight innings of work as the Russ Chandler Stadium crowd grew more maroon by the inning.
The best-of-three series between Mississippi State and Florida is scheduled to begin June 10 in Gainesville.
