Playing host no good: UGA, Tech bounced from NCAA Tournament

ATLANTA — Just like that, it’s over for both Georgia and Georgia Tech in the NCAA baseball tournament.

Facing an uphill climb needing to win two games each on Sunday in order to get to regional final games on Monday, both the Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets lost their evening matchups – resulting in their exits from the tournament.

And it happened on their home fields. Tech was a national #3 seed, while UGA was a #4 – both schools hosting regional weekends.

In Atlanta, the Yellow Jackets fell into the losers bracket out of a Saturday loss to Auburn. After a Sunday afternoon win over Coastal Carolina, Tech lost to Auburn a second time in the double-elimination format, 4-1 Sunday night.

Over in Athens, the Bulldogs also fell into the losers bracket out of Saturday’s loss to Florida State. Georgia followed a Sunday afternoon win over Florida Atlantic with a 10-1 loss in a rematch with Florida State by evening. Just last season, Georgia also got bounced from their own regional in Athens.
