Georgia Tech 14, No. 25 Clemson 9

CLEMSON — Behind a 10-run fifth inning, Georgia Tech defeated Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The Yellow Jackets (28-16, 12-12 ACC) scored a pair of two-out runs in the top of the first inning before Clemson (30-14, 15-9) responded with four two-out runs in the bottom of the first.

Trailing 5-2, the Yellow Jackets scored 10 runs in the top of the fifth inning, the most runs scored against the Tigers in an inning since 1999, to take the lead for good.

Clemson rallied with three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and a run in the seventh inning to pull within three runs before loading the bases with no outs, but the Yellow Jackets worked out of that jam without allowing a run and held on for the five-run victory.
