In the first of three scheduled games between the Yellow Jackets and Bulldogs this season, UGA took advantage of a stagnant Tech offense Tuesday.
Georgia Tech (16-14) couldn’t get the bats going on the road in Athens Tuesday night, managing only four hits in a 5-1 loss to the arch rival Georgia (15-19).
The Bulldogs got off to an early start, scoring three runs in the bottom of the first inning, and that would be all they would need for the eventual win.
Tech sent out five pitchers in the game, the loss going to Jonathan Hughes. He went only a third of an inning, giving up three runs on two hits and a walk.

The bullpen kept the damage to a minimum, only giving up two more runs, but the bats couldn’t rally back.
Yellow Jackets hitters struck out a total of 15 times in the game, managing only four hits total, with the lone run for Tech coming in the top of the seventh. The run was unearned off a fielding error.
The loss for the Jackets wrapped up a five-game road trip. Georgia Tech went 1-4 on the latest road swing, with a loss to Auburn, being swept three games by Notre Dame and the latest loss at Athens.
