Sarratt Gives Tigers Statement Win

By

The Tigers came into the Georgia Tech series looking to show the ACC and the nation that they were back among the top teams in the conference.  Three runs were enough to give the Tigers the series win Sunday thanks to a pitching gem from Justin Sarratt.

Justin Sarratt saved the game of his life for senior day.  Sarratt went 8.1 innings only giving up three hits, one run and no earned runs.

“He really pitched well.  He battled and he was real competitive.  He threw strikes and kept them off balance all day long,” said Leggett.

Georgia Tech’s Buck Farmer pitched a complete game for the Jackets.  Farmer gave up four hits, three runs and three earned runs.

Clemson head coach Jack Leggett picked up his 300th ACC win with the victory.  Coach Leggett knew Sunday’s win was important for the Tigers.

“It was big,” said Leggett.

Will Lamb now has a 19 game hit streak for the Tigers.  Lamb was 1-3 on the day with one RBI.

The Tigers took the lead in the first inning.  With one out Phil Pohl hit a solo homer to left field.  It was Phil’s fourth homerun of the season.

In the top of the fourth the Jackets tied the score at one.

Clemson bounced right back in the bottom of the fourth.  Brad Miller walked with one out.  Jeff Schaus doubled down the right field line to score Miller from first.  Will Lamb singled up the middle to score Schaus.  After four the Tigers led 3-1.

Scott Weismann came in to relieve Sarratt with one out in the ninth.  The Jackets loaded the bases but Weismann sealed the win with a strikeout.

Clemson moved to 29-15 overall and 13-11 in the ACC with the victory.  The Tigers have the week off for exams and will return to the field next Saturday for a doubleheader against Gardner Webb.
