The Tigers started the tenth inning with a strikeout by Sam Hall. Then Mac Starbuck singled up the middle. Kier Meredith walked, moving Starbuck to 2nd. This gave Elijah Henderson the opportunity to become the hero for Clemson when he took a 2-1 pitch to right center field for a single that drove in the winning run and end the game, walk off style. Henderson went 2-2 on the day with 2 hits and 1 RBI on the day.
The series finale is scheduled for noon and will see RHP Nick DeGennaro (Stony Brook) going against RHP Spencer Strider (Clemson).
