GREENVILLE - Patrick Cromwell’s solo home run to right field in the ninth inning broke a 5-5 tie and propelled No. 12 Clemson to an 8-7 win over No. 4 South Carolina in front of a record crowd of 7,460 fans at Fluor Field on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers, who evened the series 1-1, improved to 7-3, while the Gamecocks dropped to 7-4.
