Jackets fall to No. 4 Clemson – Baseball – Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Sunday

CLEMSON, S.C. – Georgia Tech baseball had opportunities early, but couldn’t get as many hits as it needed, falling short 9-3 against No. 4 Clemson on Sunday afternoon at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The Yellow Jackets (28-17, 12-12 ACC) entered the weekend having won four straight ACC series, including two against nationally ranked foes, but their high-powered offense was kept relatively dormant in the rubber game to snap their streak . Meanwhile, the Tigers (36-10, 17-7 ACC) took advantage of every opportunity they had, going 4-for-13 with runners in scoring position and 6-for-16 with runners on, scoring four runs with two outs .

Tech scored its runs of the day on a solo home run from Payton Green in the second inning and dropped a two-run bomb Parker Brosius in the ninth. Trey Yunger And Drew Burress also recorded singles.

On the mound, freshman RHP Tate McKee (4-4) suffered the unlucky loss when six runs were scored on six hits against him in 3.1 innings. Tech then used a combination of six arms to navigate the rest of the day with LHP Brett BarfieldRHP Demitri Diamond and RHP Terry Busse creating pointless frames.

Clemson was led by Jacob Hinderleider who hit the three-run home run in the fourth. RHP Billy Barlow (5-1) picked up the win, allowing two runs on three hits in 4.0 innings.

Georgia Tech returns home for the remaining five regular season games at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium. The homestand begins on Tuesday, May 7 in a nationally televised game against SEC foe Auburn. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:00 PM and will air on ACC Network.
