Atlanta Regional Prediction

A young Auburn team finds itself back in the NCAA as a No. 2 seed at rival Georgia Tech. Auburn has probably the best pitching of the four teams but they are so sloppy defensively. Coastal Carolina, the 3 seed, has a mind boggling 87 home runs. Georgia Tech probably will win this one. They’ve been all around steady good all season.
