Clemson got payback on Coastal Carolina Tuesday night with 14-5 victory at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Freshman David Kopp won his second consecutive start only allowing two runs through 6 innings. Kopp yielded to Chris Fydrich, who gave up his first three runs of the season. Drew Fiorenza came on to pitch the ninth with scouts closely watching in the stands.
The Tigers' bats continue to come alive. Tyler Colvin continues to be a terror in the lineup. Colvin led the revenge against Coastal pitcher Jake Hurry, who defeated the Tigers in Myrtle Beach. Colvin drove in four runs in the first two innings. Taylor Harbin also improved on his team best batting average against the Chanticleers. Harbin had the only home run of the game, when he hit a two run shot over left center.
Another very positive sign for the Tigers. They were able to rough up one of the big guns of a top 25 opponent. Tomorrow's game will feature senior Jeff Hahn for Clemson versus Ricky Shefka. The Tigers go for the sweep starting with the first pitch at 4:00 pm.
