Cal Raleigh had an RBI single in the first and Sansone’s homer pushed the lead to 4-1 in the third, while Busby’s homer increased the lead in the seventh.
Kel Johnson had a sacrifice fly in the first for the ninth-seeded Yellow Jackets (36-22). Zac Ryan (3-3) took the loss after allowing four runs in 3 2/3 innings.
Florida State returns to action Saturday against top-seeded Miami, while Georgia Tech faces fifth-seeded North Carolina State on Friday.
