ATLANTA -- Georgia State had its four-game winning streak snapped in a 12-6 loss to Georgia Tech Wednesday at the GSU Baseball Complex.
Junior Brandon Bell, who made his first start in right field, was the highlight for the Panthers (8-4) with a 3-for-3 night including a three-run homer.
The two teams were nearly even in the hit column as Tech had 12 hits to GSU's 11, but the Panthers hurt themselves by issuing a season-high 12 walks.
Georgia Tech (9-3) got on the scoreboard first on Tristan English's two-out, two-run home run in the first inning off GSU starter Bryan White (0-1), but the Panthers answered immediately. Kendall Ford and Justin Jones led off the game with back-to-back walks, and Nick Gatewood bounced a single through the right side for one run, and then Jack Thompson followed with an RBI-single up the middle to tie the game at 2-2.
Tech added a run in the third and then broke the game open with four runs in the fourth on just one hit as the Jackets took advantage of three walks and two errors to take a 7-2 lead.
Trailing 12-2, Georgia State scored four runs in the ninth, highlighted by Bell's three-run homer.
The two teams will meet again April 11 at Georgia Tech.
Georgia State plays its first road series this weekend at Samford, beginning Friday at 7 p.m. ET.
