Clemson head coach Monte Lee said his No. 5 Tigers played just well enough to win as they downed Western Carolina 10-8 Wednesday at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, Sam Hall scored on a two-out infield single by Kyle Wilkie, who earlier extended his hitting streak to 15 games, to give Clemson the lead, then Chris Williams laced a two-run double.
Travis Marr (5-1) earned the win in 3.1 innings pitched in relief, while Owen Griffith pitched the ninth inning to record his first career save.
Clemson hosts Austin Peay in a three-game series starting Friday at 6:30 p.m.
