ATLANTA – Georgia Tech southpaws Devin Stanton and Sam Clay combined on a seven hit shutout to bounce back from last nights loss, and beat the University of South Florida 3-0 at Russ Chandler Stadium to even the three game series at a game a piece. Senior catcher Mitch Earnest┬áknocked in two runs with a second inning single and Daniel Spingola homered in the third to give the Yellow Jackets all the runs they would need.

Stanton pitched the front five innings for Georgia Tech, allowing just five hits. He walked one and struck out five. Clay recored his seventh save of the season on finishing off the final four innings and pitched out a ninth inning jam when USF loaded the bases with no outs. He allowed three hits and struck out four.

USF starter Casey Mulholland pitched well, turning in seven innings scattering eight hits and allowing three runs. He struck out six. Kyle Teaf and Levi Borders had two hits each for the Bulls. USF falls to 26-28 on the season.

The two teams will meet in the regular season finale on Saturday with the first pitch scheduled at 1PM.
