The Clemson Insider takes a look back at No. 6 Clemson’s 3-2 win over Georgia Tech on Friday afternoon at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
The Tigers (13-1, 1-0 ACC) took an early 1-0 lead as Seth Beer launched a solo homer in the first inning. Clemson doubled their lead in the third when Bryce Teodosio hit a solo shot to make it 2-0. The Yellow Jackets (9-4, 0-1 ACC) cut the deficit to 2-1 with a run in the fourth before eventually tying it at 2-2 after an eighth inning run. The Tigers answered immediately as Logan Davidson led off the bottom of the eighth with a single and moved to third on a Beer single before coming in to score on a RBI single from Patrick Cromwell to give Clemson a 1-0 lead in the weekend series with a 3-2 win.
The game changed in the eighth inning as Georgia Tech scratched across a run in the top of the frame, but the Tigers answered with three straight hits to take a 3-2 lead.
What went right?
Jacob Hennessy gave Clemson a quality start, allowing two runs on six hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in 7.0 innings. Ryan Miller picked up his second win of the season by tossing 2.0 innings of scoreless ball. Beer had a team-high two hits to lead the offense while the Tigers played a clean game defensively.
What went wrong?
Clemson tallied only seven hits in the game (to eight for the Yellow Jackets), but thanks to the long ball and timely hitting they made them count.
