Jackets Advance to ACC Tourney Final

Broken record time - Jackets win again. Although I never tire of saying it. The Jackets took down FSU tonight 13-4 on the strength of a 7-run 2nd inning and a 5-run 8th. While Kown pitched solidly, it was Jordan Crews who came in a tossed 4.2 innings of shutout ball - only gave up 2 hits. Just outstanding. The offensive heroes were many, but once again Clifton Remole stood out with 4 RBI's, and 2 hits. Greene and Blackwood both had 3 hits, but 7 different guys knocked in runs. Talk about spreading the wealth.

So, this means GT advances to the ACC Tourney Finals Saturday Night. If the Jackets win that game, they are champions. If they lose, they will play in one more game Sunday at 1:00 for all the marbles. So the Jackets still have to lose 2 to NOT win, but only win one to bring home the trophy. Who will they play. Well, Clemson / UNC are playing tonight. The winner plays FSU at 3:30 Sat. The winner of that game plays the Jackets. Clear as mud. Link here for details.
