Clemson completed a two-game sweep of Coastal Carolina on Wednesday with 8-1 victory at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Jeff Hahn earned the victory going 6.0 innings only allowing one run. Drew Fiorenza pitched one inning again under the close eye of the scouts. According to scouts, Fiorenza is currently the second highest draft status on the team behind Kris Harvey. Fiorenza tops out his fastball in the mid-nineties.


Freshman Daniel Moskos walked two batters, but was able to pitch is way out in the eigth inning without giving up a run. Stephen Clyne came on in the ninth and once again looked very strong. Clyne gave up one hit, got a ground ball double play before striking the game's final batter. It appears that Clyne is positioning himself very well to become the team's closer. One reason a closer has not clearly been established is the Tigers have not had many save opportunities.


The pitchers once again benefited from early runs. The Tigers posted two unearned runs in the first inning on two errors. Travis Storrer had two RBI singles in the game. The Tigers continue to swing the bats well. The bottom of the line up stepped up today for the Tigers. Andy D'Alessio and Adrian Casanova each drove in a run. Casanova really hit the ball well against Coastal. Casanova is known for his defense, but if he is able to contribute with his bat that could be a very good sign for the Tigers.


The Tigers head down to Tallahassee this weekend for a big ACC series. Josh Cribb will start Friday for the Tigers as they look for their sixth consecutive win.
