Clemson head coach Jack Leggett met with TheClemsonInsider.com following Clemson’s victory over Wofford. Leggett discussed Wednesday night’s win and looked ahead to the series with South Carolina.
On tonight’s game:
They played us tough and did some good things. Their starter pitched well and kept us off balance. We were not able to make very good adjustments at the beginning but we just kept hanging in there. They scored the first one and fortunately we answered right back. We got ahead 3-1 and pushed those last two runs across. We ran the bases pretty good. Chris Epps hustled really hard on that ball to deep right and then tagged on the line drive to left. We scored on the ball that got past the first basemen. Dominic Attanasio came off the bench and got a big hit. We did what we had to do offensively. It wasn’t pretty. We played good defensively and pitched well. Justin Sarratt was good. Pohle was good and Jonathan Meyer came in and struck the kid out on a big pitch with the bases loaded.
On Sarratt coming off the injury in 2010 and working his way back:
I am glad to see him out there. He is a competitor and is tough. He is loyal and works at his game on a daily basis. It is great to see him out there.
On looking ahead to this weekend:
We will be thinking about the weekend now. Scott Weismann will go Friday for us and we will just take one game at a time. We will travel to a tough environment and see what we can do.
On the current South Carolina format:
It is a good part of the rivalry. It is good to play a three-game series at three different sites. We have keep our focus and concentration all weekend long. They do a great job in Greenville rolling out the red carpet for both teams. It is a great atmosphere.
On keeping his team focused tonight before the South Carolina series:
I would have to lie to you and say guys are not looking forward to the weekend. We try to keep their focus on what we needed to do against Wofford. They did a good job and were in the ballgame. Wofford did a good job tonight. We were able to capitalize on our opportunities.
