No. 13 Clemson falls to Georgia Southern

Georgia Southern scored in six of the first seven innings to defeat No. 13 Clemson, 14-5, at J.I. Clements Stadium on Tuesday night.

Georgia Southern scored in six of the first seven innings to defeat No. 13 Clemson, 14-5, at J.I. Clements Stadium on Tuesday night.

It was the first meeting between Georgia Southern (17-4) and Clemson (12-7) in Statesboro since 1995.

The Eagles scored three runs in the first inning and never looked back.

Kody Adams and Aaron Mizell added two-run homers later in the game to highlight Georgia Southern’s 13-hit attack.

Infielder Shane Kennedy made his first appearance of the season for the Tigers after missing the first 18 games due to a torn ACL suffered in the fall.

Ryan Frederick (2-0) earned the win, allowing one run on three hits in three innings pitched in a scheduled short start. Tiger starter Zack Erwin (1-1) suffered the loss.

The game was Clemson coach Jack Leggett’s 2,000th. He is in his 35th season.

Clemson and Georgia Southern conclude the series at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
