Mike Trapani is in his fourth year in the Georgia Tech program. As a sophomore, he filled in at third base when teammate Wes Hodges was injured and batted .419 with four homers and 17 RBI in 79 at-bats on the season. In high school, Trapani went 25-2 as starting quarterback at Marist School in Atlanta. He'll be checking in each week with reports on Georgia Tech and the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Offense Finally Gets Going against Terps


Tuesday, March 29: Western Carolina 8, Georgia Tech 5


After the great comeback win against Miami, we seemed to be a little slow on this night as we just couldn’t seem to get anything going as we fell to the Catamounts.  We didn’t play well defensively either, which led to a four-run inning, and the bats were just not awake. 


Friday, April 1: Georgia Tech 13, Maryland 8


We were winning 13-4 after four innings when the game was called due to rain and we finished up on Saturday.


Saturday, April 2: Maryland 2, Georgia Tech 1


After we finished up Game 1, we just couldn’t seem to get anything going again offensively.  Lee Hyde pitched his best game of the year by far and we just couldn’t seem to score any runs for him.  I was very impressed with how he pitched and how he battled all throughout the night.  But we had to tip our hat to their pitcher because he never seemed to give in all night.  He just stayed on the corners all night and never seemed to make a mistake.


Sunday, April 3: Georgia Tech 24, Maryland 4


Blake Wood pitched another great game for us and our offense definitely woke up very quickly as we put up 24 runs against the Terrapins.  Tyler Greene, my hero/the future, had a tremendous game with eight RBI.  He hit a bases-clearing double early in the game and then yet another grand slam later on to add to his total.  He finished off the day with an infield single driving in his eighth run of the game.  This week we play Auburn on Tuesday night in Auburn and then face Winthrop for a three-game series this weekend.  I’m very excited about the Auburn game because I grew up a die-hard Auburn football fan and a lot of my good friends go to school there.  Not to mention, the scenery at the games is always worth the trip.  Plus, we definitely owe them a little payback as they came back and beat us in our park two weeks ago.
