Jackets shut out to open Oxford regional
By The Associated Press
OXFORD, MISSISSIPPI -- 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.
Davis (11-2) was dominant on the mound and Washington (40-15-1) had 11 hits.
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.
Georgia Tech (36-26), which won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship last weekend, couldn't capitalize on that momentum. Former Buford High standout Josh Heddinger (4-5) took the loss for the Jackets, giving up five runs over 5 2/3 innings.
