Mott Hyde hit a two-run homer, while Dusty Isaacs and Sam Clay combined for a shutout to help Georgia Tech beat Clemson 3-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Isaacs (7-5) earned the win on Friday by allowing one hit in five innings, while Clay allowed just three hits from there for the ninth-seeded Yellow Jackets (35-25).

Georgia Tech finished 2-1 in pool play and will advance to Sunday’s final if top-seeded Miami (0-2) beats No. 4 seed Duke (1-1) today.

Garrett Boulware had two hits for the fifth-seeded Tigers (36-23), who also finished 2-1 in Pool A.

Georgia Tech has the head-to-head tiebreaker on Clemson if Duke loses to Miami, while a Duke win would create a three-way tie that would send Duke to the final due to its higher regular-season league winning percentage.

Former Allatoona High School star Clate Schmidt (5-7) took the loss, allowing eight hits and two runs in 8 1/3 innings.

Maryland 5, Florida State 3: Jose Cuas drove in three runs to help Maryland beat Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, a win that ultimately helped send the sixth-seeded Terrapins to the championship game.

Cuas hit a two-run double in a four-run third inning for Maryland (36-19), which improved to 11-0 in May and 2-0 in tournament pool play.

Playing in their final ACC tournament before moving to the Big Ten, the Terps earned a spot in Sunday’s final when Virginia beat North Carolina in Friday’s nightcap.

Mike Shawaryn (10-3) earned the win against Florida State, allowing two hits in seven innings.

The second-seeded Seminoles (42-15) scored three in the eighth, two on wild pitches and one on an RBI single from John Nogowski.

Mike Compton (7-2) took the loss, while Florida State committed two errors in Maryland’s big inning.

Maryland faces North Carolina in Pool B today, while Florida State faces Virginia.
