TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Clemson head coach Jack Leggett following the Tiger’s 12-5 win over Furman.
On the game tonight:
McGibbon had a really good night for us. We were able to get some men on base and actually ended up with more runs than hits. We were able to score in bunches and then push some single runs across as well. We were able to hit from top to bottom in the order and played pretty decent defense. Mike Kent came on and did a nice job pitching for us as well.
On the team’s success at Fluor Field:
It has been pretty good to us. We have played pretty well here and hit really well here. It just seems like some guys see the ball really well here.
On McGibbon’s success the last couple of weeks:
He is feeling more confident and is just more relaxed at the plate. He is getting his bat speed going and has just a little different approach than he had earlier in the season. Hopefully we are able to just keep him rolling.
On having Brittle back healthy:
He made some nice plays in the field tonight and is a valuable player for us. I thought both he and Jay Baum made some great catches out there for us. Those guys did a nice job for us, especially a couple of times when they had some runners on base. It makes a big difference when you have a centerfielder with really good range and that really showed tonight.
On the week ahead:
We just have to take it all one game at a time, starting with coming out tomorrow and playing well against a good Georgia team. We are on our fourth straight week of five games, and missing a key guy in Matt Campbell, so we have to have guys continue to step up. We just have to keep going out there; patching it up, and having everyone step up whenever they are called upon.
