Freshman hurler Earl Bass used his arm and his bat in defeating rival Clemson by a score of 2-1.
Not only did Bass hold Clemson to only two hits, but he struck out 14 Tigers, and knocked in the tying run. Pinch-hitter Mike Sisk, batting for Tommy Moody, knocked home the go-ahead run in the 7th inning for Carolina. It was a great time for Sisk to pick up his first hit of the season!
Earl Bass went on to become one of the great pitchers in Carolina history. He posted an impressive 34-3 career pitching record, 17-1 in 1975.
