CLEMSON – Chris Williams lined a one-out, bases loaded single to left to score the winning run in the tenth inning in defeating William & Mary 5-4 Friday evening at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Clemson trailed 4-1 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth but rallied to tie the score, setting up the heroics in extra innings.

Bryce Tedosio led off the tenth with a ringing double to left and moved to third on Logan Davidson’s grounder to second. That brought up Drew Wharton as the Tribe moved the infield in to cut off the run at the plate. Wharton didn’t get a chance to hit, however, getting hit by a pitch on a 3-1 count to put runners at the corners with one out.

Seth Beer stepped to the plate and the Tribe elected to walk Beer to load the bases, setting the stage for Williams. Williams laced a sharp single to left to score Teodosio with the winning run.

The opening day win broke a four-game losing streak for the Tigers. The last time Clemson won a season opener was Feb. 15, 2013, when the Tigers defeated William & Mary 2-0 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
