Brody Koerner, Jonathan Meyer, and Zack Erwin combined to allow two of 16 baserunners to score in Clemson’s 5-2 victory over Morehead State at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
The Tigers swept the two-game midweek series and improved to 13-7. The Eagles dropped to 7-14.
Trailing 2-1, the Tigers scored a run in the fifth inning to tie the game, then took the lead for good in the sixth inning on Jon McGibbon’s run-scoring single.
Meyer (1-0) earned the win by allowing six hits, no runs, and no walks with three strikeouts over four innings. Erwin pitched a hitless and scoreless ninth inning to record his first save.
