Clemson Blows Save in 3-4 Loss to Charleston Southern

New, 18 comments

Clemson has now lost to five different schools from South Carolina (SC, Winthrop, CCU, Presbyterian, and CSU).

A Reed Rohlman home run in the first inning got the game started the way Clemson vs. Charleston Southern games are supposed to start. Clemson went up 2-0 and held the lead until the sixth, but they were unable to tack anything on, and it came back to bite them. Shoddy defense aided the Buccaneers as they scored in the sixth and seventh innings to tie the game at 2-2.

In the seventh, a Tyler Krieger double gave Clemson a 3-2 lead. With a save opportunity in the ninth, Clay Bates and Alex Bostic failed to convert as Drew Moyer was unavailable due to injury. Clemson gave up another run in the top of the 10th and they could not come back in the bottom, losing 3-4.

The loss drops Clemson below .500 at 16-17. CSU is not particularly strong this year as the win boosts them to just 13-18.

Furman and College of Charleston are still on the schedule, so Clemson could potentially lose to seven different teams from South Carolina in the same year. Who even realized there were that many baseball teams in the state?
