After winning nine games in a row–including six games of ACC conference play–the 29th ranked Hurricanes have lost their first two games against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Saturday’s game went into extra innings with both teams tied 3-3.  Daniel Miranda, the typically consistent and reliable closer for Miami, gave up four hits and three runs in the top of the tenth as Tech grabbed a 6-3 lead in Coral Gables.  Putting in Sam Abrams to stop the bleeding did not help, and after giving up a 3-run home run, Georgia Tech led 9-3.  All of Georgia Tech’s scoring in the tenth inning occurred with two outs.  When Coach Jim Morris pulled Abrams, Georgia Tech was up 10-3.  Zach Robinson came in and after hitting a batter gave up a double that scored two runs.  The inning mercifully came to an end after a pop-out, but at 12-3, the game was well over.

The Hurricanes had a man on third with one out in the ninth, but could not score the game-winning run.

A bright spot for the Hurricanes is that Dale Carey got his first two rbi’s of the season on Saturday.  The slumping freshman, and one of the prized recruits of this past off-season, is looking to turn his game around for the better.  He went into this series hitting .050.

The Jackets look for the sweep tomorrow afternoon at 1.  The game can be watched on CSS or listened to at wvum.org.
