Stan Widmann hit a two-run single in the seventh to help Clemson beat Baylor 4-2 in the opening game of the NCAA Super Regional on Saturday.


Jeff Hahn (4-1) pitched two innings of shutout relief to earn the win, and Robert Rohrbaugh picked up the save.


In the seventh, Clemson (43-21) loaded the bases with no outs against Baylor (42-22) starter Trey Taylor (7-6).


Kris Harvey and Travis Storrer singled, and Andy D'Alessio reached when Zach Dillon threw late to third on D'Alessio's bunt.
