Box Score: South Carolina 9 Clemson 6
With the score tied 1-1 in the fourth inning, Tyler Slaton legged out a two-out, infield single to load the bases, then Tyler Krieger belted a bases-clearing double to give Clemson the lead. But the Gamecocks, who took a 1-0 lead in the series, stormed back by scoring the game's final eight runs to snap Clemson's six-game winning streak.
Cody Mincey (1-0) earned the win in relief of starter Jordan Montgomery, who surrendered six runs (five earned), snapping the team's scoreless innings pitched streak at 52. Joel Seddon recorded his second save of the year. Tiger reliever Clay Bates (0-1) suffered the loss.
Greiner paced the Gamecocks with five RBIs, while Krieger had a team-high three RBIs for the Tigers. Steven Duggar extended his hitting streak to 17 games as well.
The two teams square off at Fluor Field in Greenville on Saturday at 2:00 PM. The game will be televised live by WMYA (My 40) and available on ESPN3. Fan Fest, which opens at 10:00 AM, will be on Main Street outside of Fluor Field. Clemson's bus will arrive at the corner of Main Street and Markley Street at Fluor Field at 11:00 AM. Like football gamedays, there will be a Tiger Walk into the stadium.
