CLEMSON - Clemson scored 11 runs in its final two at-bats Tuesday night, rolling to a 16-5 victory over Furman at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.


The Tigers (31-18) scored six runs after the first two batters had been retired in the bottom of the seventh, snapping a 5-5 tie. It began when Furman third baseman Matthew Betsill threw wildly to first base on an attempt to retire Clemson's Tyler Colvin. Colvin advanced to second on the throw, then scored the tie-breaking run moments later on a Garrick Evans base hit.


A double by Tony Sipp made it 7-5, and after back-to-back walks to Travis Storrer and Brad McCann loaded the bases, Lou Santangelo doubled down the right field line to score two more.


Kris Harvey capped the uprising with a two-run single to push the lead to 11-5.


Clemson then added five more runs in the bottom of the eighth, three scoring on a bases loaded, pinch-hit double by John Ingram.


The late outburst made a winner of Sipp (2-1), who came on with two outs in the sixth inning in relief of starter Kris Harvey and pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings.


Ryan Hodinka was the loser for the Paladins (17-30).


Clemson appeared to take control of things when it rallied from an early 2-0 deficit by scoring four runs in the third inning and another in the fourth to take a 5-2 lead.


Sipp, McCann, Santangelo and Andy D'Alessio all had run-scoring hits in the fourth inning off Furman's second pitcher, Ryan Hudson. McCann also singled to drive in the fifth-inning run.


Furman started the road back against Clemson starter Kris Harvey in the fifth inning, when leadoff hitter A.J. Davidiuk homered to left field to cut the lead to 5-3. The Paladins tied the score in the sixth on a two-run single by Will Stembridge.


Furman had taken the early lead with single runs in each of the first two innings; Case Cassedy drove in one with an RBI groundout in the first, while Stembridge doubled in another in the second.


Clemson returns to action tonight at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, entertaining the College of Charleston. First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m.

Furman 5 (17-30)
