The Chanticleers improved to 14-6, while the Tigers dropped to 9-10. It was Clemson’s first game in Conway since 1994.
Parrett’s blast and Tyler Chadwick’s solo homer in the third inning upped Coastal
Carolina’s lead to 7-1. The Tigers, who had 10 hits and put six leadoff batters on
base, chipped away with three runs in the fourth inning and a run in the top of the
sixth inning, but the Chanticleers doubled their lead with two runs in the bottom of
the sixth inning to pull away.
Chanticleer starter Shane Sawczak (1-1) earned his first career win in a scheduled
short start after allowing two runs on four hits and two walks in 3.0 innings
pitched. Bobby Holmes pitched the final 4.1 innings to record his first career save.
Tiger starter Paul Campbell (0-1) suffered the loss in his first career start.
Clemson remains on the road to face Virginia Tech in a three-game series starting
Friday at 5:30 p.m. on ESPN3.
