Clemson defeats Furman 12-4 Tuesday


Official box score of Clemon’s 12-4 victory over Furman.

The Tigers won their first midweek contest of the season against the Furman Paladins Tuesday night.
The Tigers finally found some offensive production against the Paladins as every starter reached base in the contest.
“Eight of our nine starters either drove in a run or scored a run. We got good production all throughout the lineup,” Head Coach Monte Lee said.
Senior Chris Williams hit his first homerun of the season, a three-run shot to right-center that put Clemson ahead 4-1 in the fifth inning. He has a career high six RBI in the contest.
When asked about his homerun at-bat Williams said, “It was a two-strike count, I wasn’t trying to do too much … I connected with it pretty well.”
Junior slugger Seth Beer also had a nice game, going 2-4 with one RBI.
The Tiger offense also took advantage of the free passes Furman gave. Six Tiger batters walked and an additional four were hit by pitches or reached via error.
Sam Weatherly, who made his first career start, pitched 3.0 innings and gave up one run on three hits, two of which came in the fourth inning right before he was pulled. Overall, the freshman had some trouble staying in the zone consistently and got behind a few batters.
“I thought [Weatherly] did a great job … You look at the first three innings of the game, we only gave up three hits and one run,” Lee said.
Ryan Miller, Mitchell Miller, Owen Griffith and Holt Jones combined to pitch 6.0 innings, giving up three runs on three hits.
The Tiger defense played well behind the pitchers. Bryce Teodosio made two huge plays in centerfield, including robbing Brandon Elmy of a homerun in the fourth inning.
“Our defense has been a strong point of ours,” Lee said.
The Tigers face Dallas Baptist in a three-game series this weekend. The first game is Friday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m.
