Herd loses in Georgia Tech Classic

Feb. 17, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

ATLANTA -- Indiana and No. 24 Georgia Tech each posted one-run wins over the Thundering Herd Saturday in the Georgia Tech Classic. Indiana needed eight innings for a 2-1 win and the Yellow Jackets prevailed, 7-6.

Andi Williamson went the distance in the opener for the Herd. She fanned 11. She made a relief appearance in the nightcap and also took the loss.

Indiana scored the game-winner on a fielder's choice in the eighth after the international tiebreaker was applied, which means each half-inning begins with a runner on second base.

Georgia Tech (6-0) built a 5-1 lead after three innings and held on. Kaelyn Green drove in three runs for Marshall (2-5).

Marshall wraps up play Sunday with two games. The Herd meets Indiana at 10:30 a.m. and Miami (Ohio) at 5:30 p.m.
