CLEMSON – Reed Rohlman’s flare into center scored Weston Jackson with the winning run, and No. 5 Clemson escaped Winthrop 6-5 in 11 innings at Doug Kingsmore Stadium Wednesday night.
The Tigers loaded the bases, and with two outs Rohlman’s bloop fell in between the shortstop and center fielder for the winning run. Ryan Miller pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings in picking up the win.
Clemson has won eight in a row and 16 of 17 in improving to 22-4 on the season. The Tigers haven’t lost a midweek game since dropping a decision to College of Charleston on May 11th of last year. Winthrop fell to 13-12 on the season.
