Clemson 10 Furman 5

If the Clemson’s goals Tuesday night were: get the offense scoring, get Seth Beer going, and to get another midweek win. Check, Check, Check.

The Tigers, led by Seth Beer’s four hits, including a grand slam and Logan Davidson’s four walks, got the offensive explosion they were searching for on Tuesday night. Coming into Tuesday, Clemson was only hitting .243 as a team. Even in their huge series in at Louisville, they only amassed 16 hits.

The best part about Tuesday’s offensive downpour was that most of the damage was done with two outs. Beer had an RBI single with two out in the 3rd, and his Grand Slam in the 4th also came with two out. In fact, all of Clemson's damage in the 4th came with two outs. After getting two outs, Furman walked Cromwell and Renwick before Sam Weatherly who was pitching and play DH picked up his first hit and RBI. Davidson then picked up one of his four walks, Jordan Greene reached on a very costly error by the 3rd baseman and with nowhere to go Furman had to pitch to Beer and he promptly deposited a ball over the left center field wall to make it 8-0.

Things weren't all smooth Tuesday night. After pitching 4 1/3 , Weatherly was pulled for Holt Jones who then gave up 3 runs to make it 8-3. In the bottom of the 6th Clemson had 2 errors, an unlucky infield chop hit, and 2 walks along with a passed ball. With the score 8-5 and bases loaded with nobody out Monte lee made the call of the game putting Kyle Wilkie in at Catcher and moving Chris Williams back over to 1st and then Bringing in Travis Marr, who then struck out the next batter and enforced a BEAutiful 4-6-3 double play to get out of the inning. Furman wouldn’t get any closer and Chris Williams added a 2 run homer in the 7th to finish off the paladins.

Next up for the Tigers is Boston College this weekend at Doug Kingsmore, because of Easter the series starts Thursday at 6:30pm.
