Box Score

ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia (14-13) blew a ninth inning lead for the third time in four games, this time falling 7-6 to Clemson (15-11) on Tuesday.

Down 6-4, the Tigers struck for three runs off Troy Davis and Tim Fries (0-1) in the final frame to claim the victory. Justin Singleton singled to score Jason Harris and Patrick Boyd to knot the score at six. Two batters later, Henri Stanley drove home Bradley LeCroy with the winning run on a single. On an odd note, the two teams combined for 25 hits, all singles.

After trading leads throughout, Georgia took advantage of three Clemson errors in the eighth to grab a 6-4 lead. Adam Swann and Josh Hudson each provided a sacrifice fly in the inning. In the third, Hudson singled to extend his career-long hitting streak to 20 games.

Brian Adams (3-3) earned the win in relief for the Tigers. Adams pitched two innings, allowing no hits and one unearned run.

The Bulldogs are back in action on Wednesday, playing host to Georgia Tech at 7 p.m.
