Clemson, SC – TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Clemson starter Justin Sarratt after the Tiger’s 7-2 victory over Presbyterian. Sarratt went seven innings allowing only four hits and one earned run.
On getting in a groove tonight after the first inning:
I was just trying to work fast and give my defense a chance to make some plays. They played great tonight. Schaus robbed the home run in the second, McGibbon threw the guy out at the plate, and all the infielders played well. Knowing they are behind me really helps me out. They played great and got on a roll with the bats and it was just fun to watch them play.
On any changes he made tonight versus his last two outings:
I was just trying to work fast, get ahead, and let the defense work. I walked the one guy, but was trying to keep those down and let the defense do their job.
On the importance of this game going into the weekend:
They got the best of us last time so it was good to come out and get the win tonight. This weekend is important. We just need to win every game. Every game is important. We do not take any games lightly and we just need to go out and win. We said we were starting a new season last week and we have come out with a new aggressiveness.
On seemingly being the go-to midweek starter now:
The last two weeks I have not done that well. I was just trying to come out tonight and have a better effort to give the team a chance to win. We have been able to win those games, but I wanted to give a better effort to the team.
