After Clemson regained the lead, Wofford scored a run in the sixth inning to tie it at 9–9, and took the lead for good with four runs in the seventh inning.

The Terriers added four insurance runs in the eighth inning.

Luke Leftwich (6–2) pitched 12/3 perfect innings in relief with three strikeouts to earn the win, while Will Stillman pitched the final 11/3 innings to record his 14th save of the season.

Tiger reliever Pat Krall (1–2) suffered the loss.

Wofford’s Alec Paradowski, the leadoff hitter and second baseman, was 4 for 5 with two doubles and three runs scored. Outfielder James Plaisted was 4 for 4 with four runs scored, a double and a triple.

Designated hitter Matt Ramsey, first baseman Conor Clancey, and shortstop Derek Hirsch each had three hits for the Terriers.

Clemson outfielder Tony Slaton was 3 for 4 with a double. Steven Dugger, Tyler Krieger and Reed Rohlman each had two hits for the Tigers.

In the bottom of the seventh, Wofford’s Hirsch doubled to left–center to send home Kody Ruedisili from third for the go–ahead run.

Paradowski doubled home Hirsch, Plaisted singled to score Paradowski, and Clancey doubled home Plaisted in the decisive inning.
