The Tigers, who took a 2-0 lead in the series, improved to 3-2 on the season. The Black Bears dropped to 1-5.
The Black Bears scored two runs after a costly Tiger error in the fourth inning to
take a 2-1 lead. Chase Pinder tied the score in the fifth inning on a wild pitch and
Clemson scored two runs in the seventh inning, highlighted by Tyler Slaton’s
go-ahead, run-scoring single, to give the Tigers the lead. Maine scored two more
unearned runs in the eighth inning to tie the score 4-4.
Freshman Alex Schnell (1-0) pitched 3.0 scoreless innings to earn his first career
win. Starter Zack Erwin allowed just five hits, no earned runs and no walks with
five strikeouts in 7.2 innings pitched, but did not factor in the decision. Charlie
Butler (0-1) suffered the loss.
Game-two of the doubleheader and series-finale starts at approximately 3:20 p.m.
