One day after exploding for 12 runs against the 5th-ranked team in the nation, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets baseball team nearly doubled that mark in a 22-4 route of Clemson. Wes Hodges bested his previous day's performance of six RBIs with seven more today, setting a new single-game high for the star slugger. The rah rah style of Coach Leggett again had little effect on his team's performance as Coach Danny Hall was able to empty his bench in the route.

15 different Jackets had hits today. Hodges led the way with three and Matt Wieters and Whit Robbins each had two. Hodges, Wally Crancer and Brad Feltes all homered for the Jackets. The home run by Feltes was his first of the year.

David Duncan gave the bullpen a much needed rest today as he went six strong innings in picking up his fourth victory. He kept the Tigers guessing with off-speed and breaking pitches. Lee Hyde pitched the 7th and 8th, while Brad Rulon closed out the game.

Georgia Tech's next action will be at Georgia State on Wednesday at 6 PM. Directions to the game can be found on the Georgia State website by using the following link.

After yesterday's one inning of action, Tim Gustafson expierenced some normal pain in his shoulder. His arm is still not strong enough to start, but it seems to be improving day by day. Blake Wood, suffering from shin splints, has been having trouble pushing off of his foot when delivering the ball. For those of you who had been wondering, this is the main reason for his recent problems on the mound.

Faces in the crowd - Once again, one of Tech's most faithful supporters was in attendance. Coach Buddy Geis was seen cheering the home team on to victory.
