NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Georgia Tech rallied from a run down in the ninth, scoring four times as the Yellow Jackets stayed alive in the Nashville Regional with a 6-3 win over Illinois Sunday afternoon. Junior first-team All-ACC catcher and Golden Spikes Award semifinalist Zane Evans had three hits, two RBI and got the win with three innings of relief.
The victory moved the Jackets to 2-1 in the regional and into a championship match-up with Vanderbilt tonight at 8 p.m. ET at the Commodores' Hawkins Field. The Illini (35-20) were eliminated as second-seeded Tech (36-26) advanced to the championship bracket for the ninth consecutive time in NCAA regional play.
The Jackets must beat Vanderbilt twice over the next two nights in order to advance to next week's Super Regional round.
