Tigers Drop Second Straight to Tech

May 4, 1998

ATLANTA–Jahmal Overton’s grand slam keyed a six-run first inning as Georgia Tech won it’s second straight game over eighth-ranked Clemson, 9-7, at Chandler Stadium in front of 1289 spectators.

Tech starter Cory Vance pitched five and a third innings for the victory and Jase Wrigley earned his fourth save of the season as the Yellow Jackets improved to 34-17 overall and 11-8 in the ACC. Clemson dropped to 40-10, 12-7 in the ACC.

After the Jackets jumped on Clemson starter Brian Adams for six runs in the first, the Tigers chipped away at the lead with two runs each in the third, fourth and fifth innings, tying the score on Brian Holstad’s single in the fifth.

However, Honeycutt answered for the Jackets with a solo homer in the bottom of the fifth, and then Donaghey’s blast to left center in the seventh put Tech up for good, 9-6.

Donovan Harris (4-3), who relieved Adams in the second, took the loss for the Tigers.

The series concludes Tuesday night at Russ Chandler Stadium at 7 p.m. The game is to be televised live on Fox Sports South.
