Georgia Tech has now won at least one game in 31 consecutive ACC Tournaments, the longest current tournament win streak by an ACC team.
Tuesday’s game marked the 113th meeting between the two teams in a series that started in 1898 … Georgia Tech has won 21 of the last 27 meetings and leads the rivalry 72-40 with one tie … Wake Forest defeated Tech 12-2 in the first game played between the two schools back on April 8, 1898 … Deacon pitcher William Coggins allowed only five hits and strikes out six in a route-going effort … future major leaguer Ed Lafitte leads Tech with a pair of doubles and two stolen bases.

In ACC Tournament play, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest have now played 14 times with the Yellow Jackets owning an 10-4 advantage.
The two teams totaled 24 base hits, 13 by Georgia Tech and 11 by Wake Forest … there was only one 1-2-3 inning (bottom of the ninth) … eight Tech batters had at least one hit, including four with two-or-more safeties … seven Deacons had at least one hit with four having multiple hit totals.

Over his last two games, Georgia Tech second baseman Mott Hyde is 5-for-10 with a double,, a triple, a home run and four RBIs … Hyde leads all active NCAA players in career games played (245) and has reached base in an ACC-best 35 straight games.

Wake Forest’s Matt Conway went 2-for-5 with an RBI … Conway is tied for sixth in the ACC with 20 multi-hit games.

With three hits in four at bats, Georgia Tech center fielder Daniel Spingola notched his league-leading eighth triple of the season and his team-best 22nd multi-hit game … the Roswell, Ga., junior also leads the ACC with 76 base hits.

Four relief pitchers (two for each team) combined to pitch eight scoreless innings, allowing only six hits and striking out six.
