TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Clemson head coach Jack Leggett following the Tiger’s 15-4 victory over Cincinnati Friday afternoon at Doug Kingsmore. Coach Leggett was pleased with his team’s effort in the easy victory.
On tonight’s game:
I thought we played well. Offensively, we did all the things well. We had two innings were the bases were loaded and maybe grabbed a little more. From top-to-bottom and beginning-to-end, I thought we played well and did some good things. I thought we pitched well and played good defense. Everyone did a good job, especially coming off the bench. We played well offensively and defensively. Everybody got some confidence going so it was a good win for us.
On any special message for the team this weekend:
Well we played well last Friday and then had a little letdown Saturday. We can’t do it again so this will be a good opportunity for us to see if we learned something from that. Mentally, we need to be on top of our game and stay hungry. You can’t take anything (like runs) from today, except for maybe some confidence. You have to be ready to play right from the beginning. We get to see a new team tomorrow and that will be exciting for us.
On John Hinson (going from RBI-guy last year to setup man this season):
He does what he needs to do to help the team win. He’s playing one game at a time and seeing how things work out for him.
On the production this season from Spencer Kieboom and Phil Pohl:
They have been doing a good job. Both are extremely hard workers and tough mentally. They both work hard at their games and are bound to reap the benefits from that. I’m very pleased with how they are coming along.
On Weismann’s effort tonight:
He did a nice job and worked hard. His first four innings were really good. He kept the ball down in the zone, threw his breaking ball for strikes, and his fastball had a little snap on it. I thought he was sharp.
