Georgia Tech sweeps N.C. State



RALEIGH, N.C. -- Clifton Remole and Steven Blackwood each drove in three runs Sunday to help Georgia Tech sweep a doubleheader with North Carolina State.

Remole had a two-run home run to help the Yellow Jackets (27-17, 9-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) take the first game 6-1. Blackwood had a two-run double to give the Yellow Jackets a 7-3 win in the nightcap, a game that was called after eight innings due to rain.

It was the sixth straight win for Georgia Tech, which improved to 7-1 in league road games. Georgia Tech has won eight straight here dating to the 2000 season.

Owings also had an RBI single to score Blackwood for a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning. The Yellow Jackets added two runs in the fifth on an RBI double from Whit Robbins and an RBI single from Eric Patterson.

Remole's two-run shot in the sixth pushed Georgia Tech's lead to 5-0.

Michael Rogers (6-3) took the loss, allowing four hits and three runs in five innings.

In the second game, Andrew Kown (7-1) held the Wolfpack to two runs on six hits in seven innings.

The Yellow Jackets took control with four runs in the third inning, beginning with an RBI double from Wes Hodges. Blackwood followed with a two-run double, and Brandon Boggs added another run-scoring double.
