Tigers fall to Georgia

Clemson falls to Georgia on a late unearned run, 3-2.

Skyler Weber’s sacrifice fly in the ninth inning gave Georgia the lead for good in its 3-2 victory over Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Tuesday night. The Bulldogs improved to 19-15, while the Tigers fell to 16-16. The two teams will conclude the home-and-home season series in Athens on April 21.

Stephen Wrenn led off the game with a home run, then Chase Pinder tied the score with a solo homer in the second inning. With two outs in the sixth inning, pinch-hitter Robert Jolly doubled on an 0-2 pitch to score Chris Okey, giving Clemson a 2-1 lead. Former Tiger Trevor Kieboom lined a two-out, run-scoring single in the eighth inning to tie the score before an error in the ninth inning allowed Georgia to score an unearned run.

Bo Tucker (1-1) earned the win, as he allowed no hits, no runs and one walk with one strikeout in 2.0 innings pitched. Jared Cheek pitched a scoreless ninth inning to record his fifth save of the year. Taylor Vetzel (1-1) suffered the loss despite not allowing an earned run.

The Tigers return to Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Wednesday at 4 p.m. when they face Charleston Southern. It’s BOGO Wednesday, as fans can purchase one adult-seat ticket and receive an additional reserved-seat ticket free of charge.
