Andrew Cox’s one-out single in the 11th inning scored Reed Rohlman in No. 4 Clemson’s 6-5 walkoff win over Charleston Southern at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Tuesday night. The Tigers (29-5) won their sixth game in a row.

With the score tied 1-1, the Buccaneers (16-15) hit five consecutive singles to lead off the fourth inning and scored four runs, two of which came on Cole German’s two-run single.

In the sixth inning, Logan Davidson belted a three-run homer, his sixth of the season, to narrow Charleston Southern’s lead to 5-4. Chris Williams lofted a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to tie the score.

In the 11th inning, the Tigers loaded the bases with one out before Cox ripped a 3-1 pitch down the right-field line for his first career walkoff hit.

Rohlman extended his hitting streak to 11 games, going 3-for-4 with two runs and two hit-by-pitches.

Jeremy Beasley (1-0) earned his first win as a Tiger by retiring the only batter he faced in the 11th inning. Five Tiger relievers combined to allow four hits, no runs and one walk with seven strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings pitched.

Will Hartsell (1-4) suffered the loss.

The Tigers travel to Tallahassee, Fla., to take on No. 25 Florida State in a three-game series starting on Saturday at 6 p.m.
