GREENVILLE, S.C. - Reed Rohlman scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning as No. 17 Clemson rallied from a 4-1 deficit to down Furman 9-7 at Fluor Field on Tuesday night. The Tigers, who took a 1-0 lead in the home-and-home season series and upped their winning streak over Furman to 14 games, improved to 18-6 on the year. The Paladins fell to 10-14.

The Paladins scored four two-out runs in the third inning after an error to take a 4-1 lead. K.J. Bryant belted his first career homer, a three-run shot to left field, in the top of the fourth inning to tie the score. Clemson scored two runs in the top of the sixth inning to take a 6-5 lead, thanks in part to Chase Pinder’s double that extended his hitting streak to 11 games. With the score tied 7-7, Rohlman scored on a wild pitch in the eighth inning to give Clemson the lead for good.

Pat Krall (2-0) earned the win by tossing 3.2 scoreless innings to end the game. Nolan Mullen (0-2) suffered the loss. The six Furman pitchers combined to issue 13 walks and two hit-by-pitches.

The Tigers play their fifth road game in six days on Wednesday when they travel to Cullowhee, N.C., to take on Western Carolina at 6 p.m. Live video is available on SoCon Digital Network via a link at ClemsonTigers.com.
