Two unearned runs off a dropped fly ball in deep left center were the difference in the game as the No. 17 Clemson Tigers escaped J.I. Clements Stadium with a 5-4 win over the Georgia Southern Eagles on Wednesday in the finale of a two-game series. Closer Matt Campbell walked Stryker Brown on four pitches to lead off the bottom of the ninth, but earned the save with a grounder, a popup and a strikeout to the heart of GSU’s batting order to end the game.
