Junior righthander Brody Koerner tossed a four-hit shutout to lead Clemson to a 7-0 win over No. 8 South Carolina at Carolina Stadium on Monday afternoon. The Tigers, who won the series 2-1, improved to 7-3, while the Gamecocks dropped to 7-3. Clemson also snapped South Carolina’s six-game winning streak in the series at Carolina Stadium.
Koerner (2-1), who won the Bob Bradley Award as Clemson’s MVP of the three-game series, earned the victory in his first career appearance against the Gamecocks. South Carolina starter Josh Reagan (0-1) suffered the loss.
The Tigers scored single runs in the second and third innings, highlighted by Eli White’s two-out, run-scoring single on a 1-2 pitch in the second inning. In the seventh inning, Steven Duggar belted a double to score Reed Rohlman, then Tyler Krieger, who earlier extended his hitting streak to 12 games, scored on Chris Okey’s groundout. Duggar also scored on a wild pitch. Clemson added two insurance runs in the ninth inning.
The Tigers return to the diamond Tuesday when they host Winthrop at 5 p.m. It is Tiger Cub Tuesday, as any IPTAY Tiger Cub Club member who presents their Tiger Cub ID at Doug Kingsmore Stadium receives free admission.
