Atlanta -- Jacob Esch and Jeff Rowland both hit two-out, run-scoring singles in the seventh inning to lift Georgia Tech to a 4-3 win over Clemson in front of 2,491 fans at Russ Chandler Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Yellow Jackets, who took a 2-0 series lead, improved to 30-5 overall and 14-3 in the ACC. Clemson dropped to 23-13 overall and 10-7 in ACC play.
Kyle Parker gave Clemson a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a run-scoring double, before a pair of solo homers in the fourth and fifth innings gave Georgia Tech a 2-1 lead.
After the Tigers tied the score in the sixth inning on Parker's solo homer, Clemson took a 3-2 lead in the seventh thanks to a Yellow Jacket's error.
But two clutch hits by Esch and Rowland sent the Yellow Jackets to a one-run win.
Tiger starter Scott Weismann (3-2) pitched seven innings against one of the nation's best offensive teams, but he suffered the loss. He yielded nine hits, four runs, and one walk with a career-high-tying seven strikeouts.
