Clemson 10, Georgia Tech 0

Recap?|? Box Score

Clemson head coach Jack Leggett:
“I thought we did pretty well today, in fact, I told the team yesterday that Steve Reba was going to step up for us. He is an experienced pitcher and a big game pitcher for us. I thought he used his fast ball better than he did in any of the games during the course of the season. He worked the inside part of the plate and still threw the breaking ball for strikes, and he was tough all day long.”

“We got a couple of big hits early in the game to give us that four run inning, Roberto (Valiente) came up with a big hit for us with two outs and two strikes, and Khalil (Greene) came up and gave us a two run homer which is big also. He (Khalil) has been coming up big for us all year long.”

“We got some big hits along the way, played excellent defense today and turned over three or four double-plays all on big situations. I liked the way we played today.”

“We fell the last time we played Georgia Tech, so we felt like we really had something to get back. I think everyone responded well to that today.”

Georgia Tech head coach Danny Hall:
“Obviously, not a very good game for us. I didn’t think Goodman pitched that bad. I think if you catch three fly balls that takes six runs off the board. We could not get a hit with guys in scoring positions hitting into four double plays. It was one of our worst games. You have to give Steve Reba credit. He pitched and got the double play balls. When it looked like we had a chance to get something going against them, he made a big pitch and they made a good play to get him out of the inning.”

(On Chris Goodman) “I wanted to start Bakker, but he felt like he needed another day because he had some soreness so that was part of it. Part of it was that Goodman had had success against them. To reiterate, I don’t think he pitched that poorly, I just think that we needed to catch a few fly balls for him. Then, he might have had a little better fate and certainly scoring some runs would have helped him.”

(On Clemson’s Khalil Greene) “He’s had a great year and is a great player. He plays like a big leaguer to me. He is just a tough out. You hope you are in a position where you don’t have to pitch to him. Certainly, that is our plan and probably everyone’s in the league, but they have got a lot of good hitters around him so you don’t have the luxury sometime of avoiding pitching to him. He is a great player and a great hitter and has had a fantastic year.”
