The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (6-1) lost to the Youngstown Penguins (1-5) 12-3 in the last of a three game home-stand on Sunday. The Yellow Jackets won the first two meetings combining for 29 runs (14 and 15 respectively).

RHP Keyton Gibson started for the Yellow Jackets and didn’t last long as he pitched for only 1.2 innings. In the second inning, he first hit a batter with the bases loaded, then gave up a grand slam to the next hitter Andrew Rohan. After that, he relinquished a two-run home run to Andrew Kendrick before exiting.

The bottom of the second, right fielder Brandt Stalling hit a solo HR (1) to right field to put Georgia Tech on the score board. RHP Robert Winborne came in to relieve Gibson and looked solid before allowing a left field two-run home run to Trey Bridis in the fifth inning.

Once again, the Yellow Jackets started a rally after loading the bases, DH Joey Bart singled up the middle to bring in two runs which made the score 10-3. Georgia Tech ended the inning with two runners on base.

Winborne was relieved by RHP Garrett Gooden after hitting a batter and walking another in the top half of the sixth inning. Gooden walked another hitter before Burton Dulaney was brought in to spell him. The Penguins scored off a passed ball and then added to the lead by scoring off of a sacrifice fly to right field by Kendrick.

Georgia Tech only recorded seven hits led by third basemen Trevor Carport going 2-4 with a pair of singles. Carport is now batting .407 for the year.

Gibson gets the lost as the Yellow Jackets pitchers hit a total of four Penguin batters. They allowed 12 runs only off nine hits.

The Yellow Jackets host the Georgia State Panthers for a one game stand on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. eastern.
