OXFORD, Miss. -- Tyler Davis struck out eight and allowed only four hits in his first career complete game and Washington beat Georgia Tech 8-0 on Saturday in the opening round of the NCAA tournament's Oxford Regional.

Freshmen Ryan Peurifoy and Brandon Gold each had hits for Tech (36-26), which will play the Ole Miss-Jacksonville State loser at noon Sunday.

"Davis was really in command the whole way," Tech coach Danny Hall said. "We didn't have many opportunities to score off of him. They got a run early. That's always big, to get a run in the first inning. Then they had the big inning there where they capitalized with two outs. They executed really well on offense. Davis was pretty much unhittable."

Washington pushed ahead 1-0 in the first inning and then broke it open in the fourth with four more runs. The Huskies scored all of their runs in the fourth with two outs.

Braden Bishop and Brandon Berry each had three hits.

Josh Heddinger (4-5) took the loss, giving up five runs over 5 2-3 innings.

A.J. Murray and Matt Gonzalez had the Jackets" other hits.

This game was scheduled for Friday afternoon, but due to rain, it was pushed back a day.
