Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (16-16, 4-12) gets shut out 3-0 by the Louisville Cardinals (29-4, 13-3) in the first game of the series on Thursday night.

Pitcher Ben Schniederjans gave up two runs by allowing two singles and a threw a wild pitch in the top of the third.

He was relieved by right hand pitcher Jake Lee in the beginning of the 4th inning.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Yellow Jackets threaten with a walk to Kel Johnson and a line drive single up the middle by Poje which was Georgia Tech’s only hit of the night. The inning ended with a pop-up to the catcher behind home plate.

Top of the fifth, Lee relinquished another run to increase the lead 3-0.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Yellow Jackets was kept under wraps once again. They couldn’t catch by a break as Ryan Peurifoy was robbed from a home run by center fielder Colby Fitch. Fitch leaped up and snagged a bullet to straight away center.

Louisville pitcher Brendan McKay pitched a masterpiece striking out eight allowing only one hit and retiring his last 13 batters. He also added two hits himself on the offensive end.

Lee pitched 6.0 innings and gave up six hits one earned run and struck out three batters.

Next game is Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. eastern.
