CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Georgia Tech's bats were sluggish in a 9-2 loss to No. 20 North Carolina on the road Sunday at Boshamer Stadium. 

The Yellow Jackets (16-7, 3-3 ACC) were held to just five hits on the day, only having four at-bats with a runner in scoring position on the day – scoring first on a sac fly by Cam Jones. Tech’s second run of the day would come in the ninth when Drew Burress scored on a wild pitch.

Overall, Burress led the way with a 2-for-3 day, while Matthews Ellis also chipped in a hit.

On the mound, RHP Logan McGuire (2-1) had a tough-luck start, having five runs scored on five hits in 3.0 innings. RHP Ben King came in to settle the game and was terrific, going 2.0 hitless innings. RHP Brett Thomas and LHP Cam Jones go the remaining five innings, with Jones going 2.1 innings of one-run ball.

The Tar Heels (21-4, 7-2 ACC) were led by Parks Harber, who went 2-for-4 with a home run. LHP Shea Sprague (1-1) got the win, pitching 8.0 innings and allowing two runs on five hits.
