K.G. White homered and later scored the winning run as Georgia Tech beat Clemson, 7-5, last night to win the Atlantic Coast Conference baseball tournament in Atlanta.
White's one-run homer capped a four-run fourth inning that made it 4-4. Clemson's Scott Dillon homered in the sixth, but Tech's Keith Kerver answered with an RBI single.
In the seventh, White singled off Oliver Whitaker (4-5), moved to third on Mike Yancey's single and scored on Jeff Fisher's wild pitch. Steve Newbern singled in Yancey.
Tech's Scott Jordan was the tournament's MVP, going 11 for 22 with three homers and four RBI. He scored nine runs and had a tournament-record seven stolen bases.
Earlier, Jamie Sims' three-run home run capped a five-run sixth inning for Georgia Tech as the Yellow Jackets eliminated Maryland, 8-2. Chuck Baldwin had four hits, including a homer, as Clemson defeated Virginia, 10-8.
In the Maryland game, the score was tied, 1-1, going into the sixth. After the Yellow Jackets scored two runs on a series of singles, Sims hit a drive well over the left-center field fence to make it 6-1.
In Clemson's victory over Virginia, Baldwin had a double and single to go with his one-run homer as he got three RBI. David Horton drove in three runs for Virginia with a double.
