Andrew Cox celebrates his game-winner with his teammates

CLEMSON - "We eat pressure like candy."

That was the quote from Clemson head coach Monte Lee Tuesday night after Clemson rallied from a 5-4 deficit in the ninth and scored the winning run in the 11th in defeating Charleston Southern.

Andrew Cox laced a game-winning single to right with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th, giving No. 4 Clemson a 6-5 walk-off win over Charleston Southern Tuesday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The Tigers trailed 5-4 heading to the bottom of the ninth but tied the score to send the game into extra innings. Reed Rohlman led off the bottom of the 11th with a hard single to center, and after Seth Beer popped out to center, Chris Williams laced a single over the shortstop’s head that moved Rohlman to third. Logan Davidson walked on four pitches to load the bases, setting up the heroics.

Cox worked losing pitcher Will Hartsell to a 3-1 count and laced the next pitch down the right field line for the game-winner.

Clemson improves to 29-5 with the win, while Charleston Southern falls to 16-15. Clemson was in danger of losing its first midweek game since May of last year but now heads to Florida St. having won six straight. Jeremy Beasley pitched a third of an inning and earned the win.
