    Well that sucks. Hoping X comes back full force, and Roedig can fill in.

    But either way, sucks for the kid.

    Going to put a lot of pressure on everybody but especially X and CT in the postseason. Previously, I thought we'd be in decent shape even if we lost one of the first 2 games in the regional with the depth of the pitching staff. But now, if you lose one of those first 2, you've got to play 5 games so would need to win starts by Roedig and Willingham just to get to a 5th game where nobody would be fresh and ready to start.

    And I don't even want to think about next year. What's our weekend rotation? Willingham, Roedig, Bartnicki I guess?

    So we're down 2 of our 3 weekend starters. Seems about right for us.

    This is same rotation that started UNC series. Granted... Curry played key role in relief, but these 3 guys are capable & just need to perform.

    Congratulations to every Ga Tech Student-Athlete on this list. ...but especially, the baseball guys:
    Micah Carpenter
    Jacob Esch
    Josh Heddinger.

    The demands on this kids are big. Their ability to get here, power through, and "get out" cannot be understated. Always one of my favorite baseball weekends when these guys are recognized as their stellar accomplishments converge and are highlighted. GO JACKETS!!!

    Willingham looked to have a solid outing going before running into trouble in the T5. Jackets offense rebounded in B5 after missing some chances. 7-4 Tech B6 now and threatening to pile on some more.

    Tech in fact blows it open in B6. Up 15-4 now and still batting. Nick Wilhite with SEVEN total bases this inning.

    It was 6-4 when I last checked the score. The next time I did, I was listening to the radio, and we were putting up our 17th run. Nice jobs guys, we need this all weekend - 3 no pressure wins please.

    I think we got this one. Mark it down.

    We batted 0.500. Even Micah Carpenter got a hit and an RBI.

    Some pretty good stuff If you listen to the interviews on the baseball home page. A little different since CDH was suspended. Howell, Ramsey, and a couple of players who represent GT very well, not your usual “ you know” answers that you hear all the time, of course all of the players I’ve heard are very well spoken, just thought this segment was interesting because there was no CDH.

    That was actually an embarrassing win....I hate to see anyone get beat that bad (but I'll take it).

    I 2nd this. Ramsey seems like a real keeper. Hard to quantify his impact; but the things he & N.Wilhite say about each other are special.

    Yup. We were even playing the water boy (who is legally blind and only has 1 arm) - not much else we could have done to hold the score down.

    Not as bad as UofL last week against Alabama A&M. 28-1 in the first game, IIRC, and they had 32 hits.
