hit two home runs and drove in five runs in leading Clemson to a 10-2 victory over St. Louis in the losers’ bracket game of the NCAA Regional at Carolina Stadium Saturday afternoon, avoiding an early end to their season.

The Tigers had scored just three runs in their previous 25 innings before Wilkerson and Kennedy provided the thunder with three total homers as the Tigers scored three runs in each of the third and fourth innings and three in the ninth in breaking out the big bats for the first time since losing to North Carolina in the ACC Tournament last week.

Wilkerson had just two home runs on the season, but homered in back-to-back innings to double his season total. Wilkerson was also the first Tiger to hit two homers in the same NCAA game since Jason StolzJason Stolz
