The ACC title game is set for Sunday at noon ET on ESPN2, as six-seed Miami will face eight-seed Georgia Tech. GT looks to become the first 8-seed to win the ACC Tourney.
So how did they get there?
*GT 5, Clemson 1: The Yellow Jackets remained the only undefeated team in ACC Tournament play. Jake Davies did it all in the win. He hit a two-run homerun in the first inning. He also won his first game as a pitcher in over two seasons (just his fourth career start). Davies allowed just two hits over six innings.
Alex Cruz pitched three shutout innings to pick up his second save.
Zane Evans went 3-for-4 and Daniel Spingola went 2-for-4 in the win.
*Virginia 7, Florida State 0: Top-seed FSU fell to 0-3 in the tournament as the Cavaliers blew the game open with a six-run 7th inning. UVA collected 12 hits, all singles. Chris Taylor, Stephen Bruno, and Derek Fisher each had two hits. Colin Harrington went 3-for-3.
In just his sixth start, Artie Lewicki picked up the win, as he pitched seven shutout innings. He allowed just three hits.
UVA finished at 2-1, but was eliminated when GT won earlier in the day. Both teams await their NCAA Tournament fates.
*North Carolina 4, NC State 0: It took 12 innings for a run to score before a record crowd of 10,229. The Tarheels put together five hits (they only had nine hits total) and a walk. The inning was capped by Adam Griffin‘s bases loaded single. It was the first extra inning shutout in ACC Tournament history.
UNC closer Michael Morin picked up the win, as he allowed just one hit over FIVE shutout innings of relief.
The loss for NC State eliminated them from the title game, allowing Miami to play for the title. It was also a tough loss considering ACC Pitcher of the Year (and Freshman of the Year) Carlos Rodon pitched NINE shutout innings while striking out 12.
