GREENSBORO, N.C. - A.J. Murray drove in three runs, and Georgia Tech won its second Atlantic Coast Conference baseball title in three years, beating Maryland 9-4 on Sunday.
Freshman Connor Justus capped a three-run eighth inning with a two-run single that helped send the ninth-seeded Yellow Jackets (36-25) to their ninth conference title.
They claimed the ACC's automatic NCAA tournament berth and became the lowest seed to win the tournament, though this was the first year the field expanded to 10 teams. Blake Schmit homered and Anthony Papio drove in two runs for sixth-seeded and Big Ten-bound Maryland (36-21).
