The Florida State Seminoles had a slow start to their first game of the ACC tournament against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and it cost them. After falling behind five runs in the top of the fifth inning, the Seminoles could not complete a comeback and lost their first game of the tournament, 5-4 on Wednesday.
A pair of two-run home runs by Georgia Tech first baseman Jake Davies gave the Yellow Jackets the majority of their runs which proved to be the difference, despite the Seminoles scoring four unanswered runs, including a solo home run by centerfielder James Ramsey in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Florida State starting pitcher Scott Sitz got the brunt of the Georgia Tech offense, allowing four runs on five hits with three strikeouts over four and two-thirds innings. Relief pitcher Brian Busch allowed the second Davies home run and was only credited with allowing one run over one-third inning pitched.
The Seminoles take Thursday off and resume play on Friday afternoon as they play the Clemson Tigers at 3 p.m. The Yellow Jackets also resume play on Friday, as they face the Virginia Cavaliers at 10 a.m.
