ATLANTA , GA -- Mercer's 11-game winning streak came to a close Tuesday night with an 8-5 loss at Georgia Tech.

The Bears were doomed by a six-run second inning that saw Tech take a commanding 7-2 lead.

After falling behind by six, the Bears used a three-run fifth inning to threaten but couldn't come any closer suffering their first loss in April.

JT Thomas went 2-5 with 2 RBIs as the SoCon Player of the Week continues his red-hot pace. The Bears (32-7, 11-1) return to league action Friday night with a three-game series at the Citadel.
