Daniel Palka hit the first pitch of the bottom of the 13th inning over the fence in right field for a walkoff homer to lift Georgia Tech to a 6-5 win over Clemson in front of 1,627 fans at Russ Chandler Stadium on Friday night. The Yellow Jackets, who took a 1-0 series lead, improved to 26-17 overall and 10-12 in the ACC. The Tigers, who saw their winning streak away from home end at eight games, fell to 24-19 overall and 12-10 in ACC play.

The Tigers scored single runs in both the first and second innings to build a 2-0 lead. The Yellow Jackets tied the score with a run in the sixth inning. Brad Felder’s towering three-run homer in the top of the ninth inning gave Clemson a 5-2 lead. But two leadoff walks, Palka’s two-run double, and a sacrifice fly tied the score in the bottom of the ninth inning. After three scoreless innings in extra frames, Palka blasted a walkoff homer to right field in the 13th inning.

Jarrett Didrick (1-0), the third of three Yellow Jacket hurlers, earned the win by tossing a perfect 13th inning. Reliever Alex Cruz pitched 3.2 hitless and scoreless innings with three strikeouts. Cruz and Didrick combined to pitch the final 4.2 innings without allowing a hit or run, while the three Georgia Tech hurlers combined to hold Clemson to 0-for-12 with two outs.

Jonathan Meyer (2-3) suffered the loss despite pitching 4.0 strong innings. He gave up three hits, one run, and two walks with three strikeouts. Matt Campbell pitched 2.1 innings in relief, allowing no hits and one run with four strikeouts.

Clemson and Georgia Tech have met 207 times on the diamond, with the Tigers holding a 103-101-3 lead in the series dating back to the 1902 season. 

The two teams have faced each other at least one time every year since 1974.  Georgia Tech has won each of the last seven series against Clemson at Russ Chandler Stadium, as the Tigers’ last series win in Atlanta came in 1996.

Last season at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, the Tigers won the first (4-2) and last (3-1) games of the series, while Georgia Tech won game-two 5-1.  Then in the ACC Tournament in Durham, NC, Clemson blanked the Yellow Jackets 9-0. 

In 2010 in Atlanta, the Yellow Jackets swept the Tigers by scores of 8-6, 4-3, and 11-3.  Then in the ACC Tourney in Greensboro, NC, Clemson topped Georgia Tech 9-3.

The Yellow Jackets hold a 71-39-2 lead in games played at Georgia Tech, while the Tigers own a 46-42 advantage in ACC regular-season games. 

Jack Leggett has a 38-32 record against Georgia Tech as Clemson’s head coach, including an 8-20 mark at Russ Chandler Stadium.  Leggett was 3-5 against the Yellow Jackets as Western Carolina’s head coach, meaning he is 41-36 all-time against Georgia Tech.

In game-two, the Yellow Jackets will send out sophomore righty Dusty Isaacs (5-2, 6.75 ERA) on the mound.  THe Lebanon, OH native has made 10 starts and one relief appearance for a total of 46.2 innings pitched.  He has given up 49 hits (.275 opponents’ batting average) and 33 walks with 34 strikeouts.

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million
