Pitt uses 8-run inning to beat Georgia Tech in ACC tourney

By The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Ron Washington Jr. homered and drove in four runs, Jeffrey Wehler added three RBIs and No. 11 seed Pittsburgh used an eight-run sixth inning to rally past seventh-seeded Georgia Tech 12-6 on Tuesday in the opening game of the ACC Tournament.

Pittsburgh (28-26) faces No. 2 seed Louisville on Wednesday and Georgia Tech (33-22) plays the Cardinals on Thursday.

Washington and Bryce Hulett hit back-to-back homers to begin the sixth, and Wehler added a two-run single to give Pitt an 8-6 lead. Washington's 14th home run of the season was the first of his two hits in the inning.

Georgia Tech walked four batters in the ninth inning, and Wehler capitalized with his third straight single to extend Pitt's lead to 11-6.

Matt Gilbertson (9-3) allowed four earned runs and nine hits in five innings for Pitt. Jonathan Bautista pitched four scoreless innings to earn his first career save.

Kevin Parada, who set a Georgia Tech single-season record with 26 homers, was 0 for 3 with a run scored. Sam Crawford (0-1) took the loss, allowing three earned runs without recording an out in the sixth inning.

Pitt lost three straight games at home to Georgia Tech last week by a combined score of 40-17.
