CLEMSON -- Clemson used runs in four straight innings to notch a 10-4 victory
over Georgia on a cold Tuesday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. With
the win the Tigers moved to 26-13 on the year avenged an 8-4 loss to
Georgia (24-14) on March 28.


The Bulldogs got on the board first with Kris Edge's RBI single in
the second inning, but Chad Coder's double knocked in Khalil Greene
in the bottom of the inning to tie the score. The Tigers then grabbed
a 4-1 lead in the third inning and never looked back. A double by
Jeff Baker drove in Casey Stone and moved Kyle Frank to third base.
Frank scored on a wild pitch and Baker scored on the same play after
an error by Georgia catcher Doc Brooks.


Two Tiger runs in the fourth inning made it a 6-1 advantage until
Georgia responded in the fifth. The Bulldogs loaded the bases with
none out and scored off of a sacrifice fly and consecutive RBI
singles by David Coffey and Mark Thornhill.


Clemson broke the game open in the bottom of the fifth inning thanks
to back-to-back home runs. After a single by Russell Triplett,
Michael Johnson hit a towering shot to center field for his 11th home
run of the year. When Greene followed with his fifth homer of the
year, it marked the third time this season Clemson has hit
back-to-back home runs. Steve Pyzik's RBI single later in the inning
gave the Tigers a 10-4 lead.


Coder led the way for the Tigers on offense by going 3-4 with an RBI
and two runs scored. Clemson collected 13 hits on the evening and all
10 batters reached base.


Pitcher Nick Glaser improved to 4-1 with the win. The righthander
relieved starter Kevin Lynn in the fifth inning and pitched 2.1
scoreless innings. Shaun Helmey (1-1) picked up the loss for Georgia.


Clemson will travel to Columbia on Wednesday to face South Carolina
at 7:00 PM. The game can be heard on the Clemson Tiger Network.
