Georgia Tech edges N.C. State in 15 innings
Placeholder Image

Freshman Mott Hyde stole home in the top of the 15th inning for the eventual game-winning run in a victory for No. 3 seed Georgia Tech (40-18) 6-5 over seventh-seeded NC State (34-24) Thursday in the ACC tournament in Durham, N.C.

The Yellow Jackets victory was their 40th of the season, making it the 22nd year that the team has reached the 40-win plateau.

It came at the expense of the longest game in school history, a five-hour, seven-minute contest that set an ACC Tournament record with 15 innings and ended at 12:32 in the morning. It also kept the Jackets hopes of advancing out of the bracket alive.

After reaching on a double to left field earlier in the inning, Hyde advanced to third base on a groundout by sophomore Sam Dove.

The Yellow Jackets game schedule for Friday against Florida State was postponed due to weather. It will be played at 9 a.m. Saturday as part of a tournament quadruple header.
