Clemson hitters jumped all over Georgia Tech pitching Friday night and kept the pressure on all weekend, culminating in a 14-2 pasting of the Yellow Jackets at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, Sunday, and a three-game sweep for the Tigers. Clemson batters reached base 23 times, Sunday, and every starter scored a run and registered at least one hit. Third baseman Max Wagner spearheaded the attack, reaching base four times, scoring three runs and going deep for the 22nd time this season. Wagner was one of five Tigers to homer as part of the onslaught.
Cooper Ingle (2-5, 3 RBI), Bryar Hawkins (2-4), Jonathan French (1-3, 3 runs) and Camden Troyer (2-5, 3 RBI) also homered. Clemson created a multitude of run-scoring opportunities with 15 hits and cashed in time and again, finishing 5 of 11 (.455) with runners in scoring position. The Tigers outscored Georgia Tech 35-14 and never trailed over the three-game set. The hot streak has come at an opportune time, improving Clemson’s record to 31-17 overall and 9-14 in ACC play.
The Tigers will step out of conference to face College of Charleston at Segra Park in Columbia at 7 p.m., Tuesday.
