CLEMSON, SC -- Clemson scored eight runs in the second inning, its highest ever
output in a single inning by a Tiger team in the College World Series, as the #3 Tigers downed #7 San Jose State 10-6 on June 9. The previous record
by a Tiger club was five runs, which occurred on three different occasions.
The eight-run outburst started with four Tigers reaching via singles and
was highlighted by Patrick Boyd's three-run homer to left field. Clemson,
who added two more runs in the third inning, had all 10 of its runs and
nine of its 10 hits in the first three innings. Ryan Mottl earned the win
despite allowing nine hits and five earned runs in 5.0 innings. The win
was the senior's 10th of 2000, becoming the first Tiger to rach double
digits since Mottl won 10 games as a freshman in 1997. Steve Reba pitched
4.0 scoreless innings in relief to earn the save. He allowed just two hits
and one walk, and worked out of a second-and-third jam with no outs in the
seventh inning without allowing a run. It was Clemson's first opening game
win in the College World Series in its last six appearances in Omaha.
