CLEMSON, S.C. – Georgia Tech baseball couldn’t get their typical bats going, getting held to six hits in the 9-3 loss to Clemson on Friday night at Kingsmore Stadium.

Tech used four pitchers on the night. Starter RHP John Medich (4-4) went four innings but allowed five runs on eight hits to receive the loss. Tech got good outings out of two young arms in RHP Cameron Clines and RHP Xander Stephens, who worked 2.2 hitless to close.

Six Jackets recorded hits on the night – Kevin Parada, Andrew Jenkins, Tres Gonzalez, Tim Borden II (double) and Drew Compton.

Clemson was led by Bryar Hawkins, who went 3-for-5 with two RBI, while RHP Mack Anglin (5-4) pitched 7.0 innings, allowing the three runs in the seventh on five hits overall with eight strikeouts.
