Tech stays in the winners' bracket
Georgia Tech's Tony Plagman (20) is congratulated at home plate after his home run against Alabama during second inning in the NCAA college regional tournament Saturday in Atlanta.

    ATLANTA — Deck McGuire pitched eight strong innings, Jacob Esch had three RBIs and Tony Plagman drove in the go-ahead run to help Georgia Tech beat Alabama 5-2 on Saturday night and advance to the Atlanta Regional title game.
    Georgia Tech (47-13) likely will play for a chance to host a super regional next week when it faces the Alabama-Mercer winner Sunday night. The Yellow Jackets have won two straight and three of four.
    Alabama (38-23) has lost two of three after playing its way into an at-large bid with an eight-game winning streak that ended in the Southeastern Conference title game.
    McGuire (9-4) allowed eight hits, two runs, two walks and struck out six. The right-handed ace is projected as a high pick in the upcoming baseball draft.
