The Tigers got scoring early and scoring often as Andrew Cox laced a two out double in the first inning to score Reed Rohlman and Chase Pinder, giving Clemson an early 2-0 lead. KJ Bryant would add a two out single to score Robert Jolly, and then would score himself off of a balk by Wofford pitcher Matt Ellmyer. The Tigers would finish things off with a huge 8th inning scoring 5 runs off of 5 hits and 2 errors, pushing the lead out to 9-1. Wofford would only be able to manage one run as pinch hitter Brett Rodriguez knocked a home run off of Jeremy Beasley. Beasley would get the final out on the next at bat, forcing pinch hitter Andrew Orzel to ground out to second for the final out.

Clemson pitching combined to hold Wofford hitters to 4 hits and 2 walks. Starter Tyler Jackson went seven innings, giving up 3 hits and striking out 9 Terriers. Jackson moves to 1-1 on the season. Wofford starter Matt Ellmyer falls to 0-1 on the season after giving up 4 runs on 8 hits in 4.2 innings of work. The Tigers will take the field again Friday, opening up the Palmetto State rivalry series against South Carolina in Clemson. First pitch will be at 6:30. The game can be seen on ACC Network Extra.
