Donald Hansis ripped a first inning grand slam to put College of Charleston up 4-0, and it was all Cougars from there. Clemson starting pitcher Mack Anglin lasted just 1.1 innings before Keyshawn Askew came in. Askew didn’t have a bad four innings giving up just three hits, but one of those hits was a third inning two run shot to Ari Sechopoulos. C of C had another four run inning in a seventh that saw Clemson shuffle through four pitchers before Nick Clayton was able to finish the inning out. Trailing 11-0 going into the ninth, the Clemson rally fell way short as Clemson scratched across two runs in route to an 11-2 loss. This is the second straight midweek game the Tigers have lost. College of Charleston moves to 8-2 on the year while the Tigers fall to 9-3.

Clemson can’t hang their heads for too long, though, because this weekend ACC foe Boston College comes to town. BC was supposed to come down to the Palmetto state early for a Wednesday night matchup with South Carolina, but it was cancelled due to weather. BC comes in at 5-6, having failed their biggest test by getting swept on the road at #8 Arizona State in February. The series will start off at 4:00 PM Friday evening.
