Tigers Fall in Game 1

By

The Tigers were shutout for just the second time in 2011 as they fell 6-0 to NC State at Doak Field Friday night in front of 1,176.  Cory Mazzoni pitched a complete game for the Pack allowing only four hits and striking out ten.

Attanasio, Schaus, Pohl and Shaffer were the only Tigers to get a hit on the night. 

Scott Weismann got the start for the Tigers and pitched well before getting into trouble in the fifth.  Weismann got into a little trouble in the first inning.  With one out two NC State batters walked and advanced to third on a passed ball.  Scott got out of trouble with a strikeout.

The Tigers stranded runners in the first and second inning.

NC State got on the board first in the fifth inning.  Berqquist led off with a double and advanced to third on a long fly from Gianis.  A double down the line by Diaz scored Berqquist.  Maynard singled through the right side to score Diaz.  Riggins hit a three run homer to right center to make the score 5-0.

Matt Campbell came in to replace Weismann after the homerun.  Matt quickly got the final two outs of the inning.

The Pack added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth.

Clemson threatened in the eighth.  Jon McGibbon walked with two outs.  Dominic Attanasio beat out an infield single and John Hinson was hit by a pitch to load the bases.  Jeff Schaus was out with a fly ball to end the threat.   

Clemson fell to 12-8 on the season and 3-4 in the ACC with the loss.  NC State moved to 13-10 overall and 2-5 in the ACC.

Saturday’s game time has been moved to 2 PM due to weather concerns.
