TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Clemson head coach Jack Leggett following the Tiger’s victory over Georgia.
On tonight’s game:
We took advantage of their inability to throw strikes and had a huge two-out hit by Richie. I thought we played well tonight. We kept our poise and came from behind early. We got some big hits when we had to and our relief pitching was really good tonight. They came in and did what they had to do.
On having to go to the bullpen early:
We did not plan on doing that. We were going to let Sarratt go a bit. He is a battler for us and he’s a competitor. We just were not seeing all the things we needed to see at that particular time. He will have a better outing the next time around and keep on pitching for us.
On being able to extend the inning in the sixth:
It was huge. Those are the things that have not been going our way. It was good to see something like that and then the ability to take advantage of it when it did happen.
On getting the guys back in the lineup:
Miller will still be a little while before he is back in the field. It was good to have Brad, John, and Spencer back in the lineup. We wanted to keep Pohl in the lineup too. He has been hitting the ball good for us. He has not played much right field, but it was an opportunity to see what he could do out there.
On the upcoming series with UNC:
It is big. We are just going to take it one game at a time. We just need to focus on the game. They have been playing good all year long. They have some good players, good pitching, and are very well coached. It will be a good challenge for us at their ballpark. You just have to go play baseball and not worry about all the things around us. You just play one game at a time. I know that sounds cliché, but that is what you have to do. I think we will go Weismann, Leone, and Firth this weekend as far as the rotation.
