Resuming the game leading 4-2 in the bottom of the fifth with runners on first and third and no outs and with the Catamounts batting, Clemson pitcher Stephen Farris got the first two hitters to ground out to him to immediately end the threat.
Farris, who pitched the last five innings, earned the win to improve to 3-1 on the season, while the Tigers go to 22-14 overall. Bryan Tupper (0-2) took the loss.
Clemson leftfielder Tyler Colvin and first baseman Andy D'Alessio each hit homers, but they were both at Western Carolina. Colvin finished with two hits and three RBIs.
The regularly scheduled game for Tuesday gets underway at 7:15 p.m., with redshirt freshman P.J. Zocchi (0-0) getting his second-career start.
The first didn't go too well as he gave up three runs and five hits in two innings of work against Gardner-Webb back on March 3.
Steven Strausbaugh (0-0, 9.00 ERA) gets the start for the Catamounts (21-15).
