TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Clemson head coach Jack Leggett after their first ACC win of the season Friday night.
On the win tonight:
It felt good to get a win there is no question about it. I thought there were three or four pivotal things in the ballgame. We grabbed a couple runs in the first and second, gave up four in the third and our kids responded with four in the bottom of the inning. Jonathan Meyer came in and did a tremendous job in relief. We got a big run in the eighth and Freddy came in and did his thing in the ninth.
On the quick start tonight and lineup changes:
It happened to work out for us tonight. We will take a look at it again tomorrow. Hinson did a good job for us. He set the tone early and got on base and set the tone for us. It was good to see and we might give him another shot at it.
On getting some breaks that have not gone the Tigers way the past few games:
We had 14 hits and strung some of them together. Another big part of it was that four-run inning. We got the leadoff man on, but all four runs scored with two outs.
On his team responding tonight:
It was huge, just huge. To give up four after scrapping for your first four runs is a little bit of a difficult situation for us. But we responded really well and got those two-out hits and runs to shift the momentum back our way. That was a pivotal part of the game.
On the performance of Jonathan Meyer:
He did a nice job for us. He was throwing his breaking ball for strikes and spotting his fastball really well. They started getting to him a little at the end so we made a change and Freddy came into a tough situation and was able to close it out.
