The Clemson Tiger baseball team overcame a cold night to shut out Old Dominion in the first game of a two game series. True freshman David Kopp earned the win and Stephen Faris got the save. Kopp bounced back after a rough outing in his first career start against Winthrop.


Kopp held the Monarchs hitless through 5 and 2/3 innings. Kopp's performance was a very encouraging sign as the Tigers still have mid-week matchups left on the schedule with ranked opponents Coastal Carolina, South Carolina, and a two-game series with Georgia. Kopp and Faris combined to only give up two hits in the game. Faris continued to pitch well, improving on his ACC leading 0.59 ERA.


The Tigers only run was unearned. Another true freshman, Taylor Harbin, reached on an error with one out. Then Harbin advanced to third on throwing error on an attempted pick off. Travis Storrer then struck out, bringing Tyler Colvin up with two outs. Colvin continued to deliver big hits rifling a double off of the right field wall that plated Harbin.


Senior Jeff Hahn will get the start for the Tigers tomorrow, as they look for the two-game sweep of the Monarchs.
