Let's just keep it short and sweet because there is no good news and really nothing to see here: Georgia Tech swept Miami this weekend at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.
Forget the scores and the reasons why Miami lost, simply put the Yellow Jackets came into Coral Gables and swarmed and then stung the Hurricanes for three straight days.
All the University of Miami baseball players had to show for their efforts against the Yellow Jackets were some red bumps on their arms, legs and faces after three straight embarrassing losses marked by errors (surprise) and men left on base (shocker).
Both teams entered the weekend series with unblemished 6-0 conference records. Now Miami stands at 6-3 in the ACC while GT remained perfect in conference play at 9-0.
While the UM pitching had held up until this weekend it has become obvious that Miami cannot execute in the field (last in the ACC in fielding % and errors with 44), at the plate (no Hurricane player is leading or even in the top 10 in any batting category in the ACC) or on the mound late in games (the bullpen faltered against GT).
And to add to that the Hurricanes are leaving an average of eight men on base each game. It's hard to win a big ACC series with those factors going against you.
Before the GT series in Miami Canespace blogger Mephistopheles talked about this weekend being the proverbial "fork in the road" for this 2011 Miami team.
