Georgia Tech rallied from a 6-0 deficit to pull off a dramatic come from behind victory and sweep Clemson out of Atlanta, Sunday. The Tigers raced out to a commanding lead with five runs in the second inning and another run in the third. Kier Meredith and Caden Grice led the early onslaught with a three-run triple and a two-run double, respectively.

But the Yellow Jackets were able to erase it all when they touched up starter Mat Clark and reliever Nick Clayton for seven runs in the fourth. Sam Hall ‘s sixth-inning homer knotted the game at 7, but it was Georgia Tech that would land the decisive blow with a two-run home run in the seventh. Dylan Brewer’s long ball would cut the lead to one, but Tech’s Chance Huff held the Tigers (22-21, 15-15) to a scoreless ninth to secure the win and the three-game sweep. Clayton (6-2) took the loss after giving up three earned runs over 4 and 2/3 innings in relief of Clark.

Clemson will next return home to close out its season series with South Carolina at 6 p.m., Tuesday.
