The Tigers improved to 25-24, while the Cougars dropped to 35-10. It was the first meeting between the two since 2012.
Clemson scored single runs in the third and fourth innings, then Bradley Jones belted a two-run homer in the top of the fifth inning to tie the score. The Tigers responded with three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Robert Jolly’s leadoff double started the uprising in the fifth inning. The Cougars loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh inning, but Alex Bostic entered the game and retired the next three batters without allowing a run.
Clate Schmidt (2-3) earned the win in a starting role by allowing four hits, two runs and one walk with four strikeouts in 5.0 innings pitched. Taylor Vetzel pitched the final 0.2 innings to record his second save of the season. Eric Bauer (3-3) suffered the loss, as he gave up three runs on four hits in 0.1 innings pitched.
