Georgia Tech rolls past Campbell 6-5 to stay alive

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — Chandler Simpson had five hits and four runs, Josiah Siegel threw 6 1/3 innings of one-run relief and Georgia Tech rolled to a 16-5 victory over Campbell on Sunday in a loser-out game of the Knoxville Regional.

The Yellow Jackets (36-23) hit 19 hits to eliminate the Camels (41-19), who had won the game in the regional opener. The win was the 1,348th for Georgia Tech coach Danny Hall, the most active NCAA coaches.

Georgia Tech will take on Tennessee, the overall No. 1 seed, for a spot in the super regional.

Simpson also had two of Tech’s seven bases stolen. Kevin Parada was 3-for-6 with three runs batted in, Andrew Jenkins also hit three runs without an at bat and Tim Borden III scored four runs in three official at bats.

Borden’s home run leading to the second kick kicked off a five-run rally and Georgia Tech pulled away.

Siegel (2-0) gave up three hits, including back-to-back two-out doubles in the ninth for Campbell’s last run.

Jonathan Beymer (3-2) gave up 10 runs on 10 hits in 3 2/3 innings for the loss.
