Game 1: Clemson 5 Louisville 1:

Clemson got going offensively early and introduced us to the best home run celebration in baseball history.

Kyle Wilkie, Logan Davidson and Elijah Henderson each homered to help Clemson get the win over #8 Louisville. Davis Sharpe went 6.2 innings, giving up four hits to get his fifth win.

Game 2: Clemson 6 Louisville 3:

Mat Clark went 7.1 innings to get his seventh win on Spring Game Saturday in Clemson. Grayson Byrd and Bryar Hawkins both went yard to help Clemson get the win and take the series.

Game 3: Louisville 7 Clemson 4 (11 innings):

Alex Binelas and Drew Campbell each ripped homers in extra innings to put Louisville ahead, and eventually prevent the Cards from being swept. Logan Davidson ripped an early two run homer but was unable to get any runs across the plate in extra innings as the Tigers fell. Starting pitcher Keyshawn Askew went 2.2 innings, giving up five hits and three runs. Carson Spiers earned his second loss (1-2), going 1.2 innings giving up three runs on five hits.

The Tigers will turn around and host a pair of in state foes this week, as Charleston Southern visits Doug Kingsmore on Tuesday, and then Furman comes to town on Wednesday.
