Ninth-inning rally lifts Tigers over Georgia

ATHENS, GA. - Jordan Greene scored the go-ahead run in the ninth inning on an error and the Tigers added four insurance runs in the frame as No. 16 Clemson rallied for an 11-6 win over Georgia at Foley Field on Tuesday night. The Tigers, who took a 1-0 lead in the home-and-home season series, improved to 22-7, while the Bulldogs fell to 17-13.

The Tigers broke a 2-2 tie with a run in the fourth inning, but a two-out throwing error on a ground ball allowed the Bulldogs to take a 4-3 lead. Chris Williams belted a two-run homer, his second long ball of the year, in the top of the seventh inning, but Georgia, without the benefit of a hit, scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the seventh inning on a wild pitch.

Seth Beer belted a long solo homer, his 13th of the year, in the eighth inning to tie the score 6-6, which also extended his hitting streak to 25 games, tied for fifth longest in school history. Then Greene led off the ninth inning with a walk and scored on an error off the bat of Robert Jolly. The Tigers added four more runs in the ninth inning.

Tiger reliever Pat Krall (4-0) earned the win, while Bulldog reliever Drew Moody (0-3) suffered the loss.

The Tigers travel to Durham, N.C., to take on Duke in a three-game series at Jack Coombs Field this weekend beginning Friday at 6 p.m.
