ATLANTA -- Freshman Connor Justus broke a tie in the sixth inning with a run-scoring single as Georgia Tech beat Virginia Tech 3-1 on Saturday afternoon at Russ Chandler Stadium.
Matt Gonzalez drove in a run in the eighth for the final run.
Devin Stanton (4-3) pitched a career-high seven innings to earn the win. He gave up one run on six hits. He struck out five.
"He pitched really well and we needed him to do that today," Georgia Tech coach Danny Hall said in a news release. "He probably threw a few more pitches than we would have liked, but he said he felt good and we wanted to get at least the seventh inning out of him and then give the ball to Sam (Clay)."
A.J. Murray hit a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game at 1-1 for the Jackets.
Georgia Tech (28-91, 14-12 ACC) goes for the series sweep against Virginia Tech (18-27-1, 7-19) at 1 p.m. Sunday.
