TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Clemson head coach Jack Leggett following the Tiger’s loss to Georgia Tech Friday night in 13 innings.
On the game tonight:
We had a three-run lead that we needed and got our big hit. We have been waiting on that type of hit all season long and Felder had a big three-run homer for us. After that, I thought we had a great chance to win the ballgame right there and we let it slip away. We have to gather ourselves and come back tomorrow. Brady did a nice job for us starting and then Campbell came in and did a nice job before he got hurt. We just could not hold on. We walked the first two guys in the ninth and that is never a good thing. They came up with a couple of big hits and we put ourselves in a tough position to win.
On Brady and Campbell’s injuries:
Brady just hurt himself stretching on a play at first. Campbell’s injury was the same spot he was having trouble with a couple of weeks ago. It looks like he will be out a little while for sure.
On the pitching going forward:
I am not even thinking about it right now. We have to collect ourselves, get some rest, and come back tomorrow ready to play.
On Felder’s hit:
It was a big hit for us, but it really does not mean anything for us right now. It was a big hit for him and good to see out of him. It was a big time for us.
