The Tigers were dominated by Georgia in Athens on Tuesday.

Brody Koerner jumped ahead to put the first two UGA batters out, but the Dawgs were able to score four runs with two outs in the first inning, and they never looked back. It wasn't all on Koerner, as Steven Duggar's first inning error helped the Dawgs to their third run of the inning.

Duggar made up for it in the fifth inning with a phenomenal diving catch that was featured as the number one play on SportsCenter's "Top 10 Plays." Clate Schmidt came on in the third to pitch three innings, in which he only gave up one run and one hit over the span. However, Clemson's lack of offense was never enough to overcome the early hole that the Tigers found themselves in. Georgia's two pitchers held Clemson to just two hits on the night, and only walked two Tiger batters. The Dawgs played stellar defensively, turning three double plays on the night. The loss drops Clemson to 22-19 overall, while Georgia moves to 21-20. The Tigers will be returning to the Peach State to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in an ACC weekend series in Atlanta.
