The Clemson Tigers put a dent in College of Charleston's hopes of hosting a regional Tuesday night. The Tigers overcame an early two run deficit to defeat the Cougars 8-5 in front of an announced crowd of 3,963. Eight different batters combined for the Tigers nine hits on the night.


The Cougars jumped on the board early with a run in the first. Herman Demmink led off the bottom of the first with a double. Taylor Harbin plated Demmink with a sacrifice fly to even the score. Stan Widmann had RBI double to score Travis Storrer in the second to put the Tigers up 2-1.


In the third inning, Charleston plated three runs to go up 4-2. Chris Campbell hit a two run homer for his 12th of the year. David Kopp settled down after the third. He did not give up a run in his final three innings pitched.


Kris Harvey led off the fourth with a single to center and moved to second on a wild pitch. Storrer's groundout moved Harvey to third. D'Alessio then grounded out to first, scoring Harvey to cut the Cougars lead to 4-3. Clemson then took the lead for the good in the fifth inning. Demmink had a one out single to get things started, and Chalk was hit by a pitch. Demmink scored on a double by Harbin, his 24th of the year. Tyler Colvin had an RBI groundout to score Chalk, then Harbin scored on a wild pitch.


D'Alessio hit his 14th home run of the season with one out in the sixth inning.


Oliver Marmol scored on a single by Byron Barber in the seventh off of Daniel Moskos to cut the lead to 7-5. Jeff Hahn came in to force a Campbell into a double play to end the inning. Tyler Colvin answered in the bottom of the inning with a single that plated Demmink for his second RBI of the night and the third run scored by Demmink.


Hahn pitched 2.2 scoreless innings to pick up his second save of the season.


Thanks to the efforts of Kopp and Hahn the pitching staff should be fresh and ready to go for the final regular season series against Miami. The series begins Thursday night at 7:15 pm at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
