Tigers Roar to 14-3 Victory

By

For the past few months everyone has discussed the impact of the new bats on the 2011 college baseball season.   There would be less homeruns and lower scoring games.  Someone forgot to tell Chris Epps and the Tigers. 

In the season opener Friday afternoon in Doug Kingsmore the Tigers scored 14 runs on 16 hits on the way to a 14-3 victory over Eastern Michigan.

Chris Epps started things off with a homerun to left center to start the game for the Tigers.  Clemson would score three more in the first to take the lead 4-0 after one.

Eastern Michigan bounced back with three in the top of the second thanks to a three-run homer.

The Tigers plated three more in the third and three more in the forth to stretch the lead to 10-3.

Clemson wasn’t done as they added another in the sixth and three in the seventh to build the lead to 14-3.

Scott Weisman picked up the win for the Tigers.  Weismann went 5.0 innings giving up five hits, 3 earned runs and only one walk.

TheClemsonInsider.com will have much more on the first win of 2011 coming up shortly.
