Tigers take control against Spartans

After going 0-for-2 with runners in scoring position through his first two at-bats, Weston Jackson came through for Clemson in the bottom of the fifth inning.

With the bases loaded and two outs, Jackson singled to right field to drive in two runs and give the Tigers a 2-1 lead against UNC Greensboro in the Clemson Regional at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Andrew Cox followed with a single to second base to plate two more runs for a 4-1 advantage.

After Kyle Wilkie struck out to begin the frame, Logan Davidson singled to left-center before moving to second base following a walk by Reed Rohlman. Chase Pinder then reached on a fielder’s choice to first base that moved Davidson to third. Seth Beer was intentionally walked to load the bases for Jackson, who drove in Pinder and Davidson with his base hit. Jackson advanced to second base on a wild pitch prior to Cox’s single, which scored Beer. Jackson also came around to score on an error by UNC Greensboro second baseman Austin Embler.

Before Clemson took control, Caleb Webster put UNC Greensboro on the board first with his first home run of the season, a solo shot to left field in the top of the fourth inning.
