OFFICIAL GAME 2 THREAD: #20 CLEMSON vs #3 North Carolina

CUTrevor 2019-03-09 16:06:48


First pitch at 5:10. Mat Clark will make his second career start and first of the season! He was 4-0 last season with only 21 innings, making the one start. He is already 2-0 this season with both of his wins coming in relief of Crawford on Fridays.

Huge game one "balk-off" win for the Tigers after a one-out game-tying RBI single by Meredith. Freshman pinch runner Elijah Henderson scored the winning run.

Hall starting in center for the first time. Not sure if there is anything wrong with Teo. Monte pinched for him in the 9th inning despite the fact he was leading the team in average, HR's and RBI's just a week ago. Also one of the best center fielders in the nation.

Good grief throwing error on Byrd at 3rd and a run scores. Would have scored anyway, but they have 2nd and 3rd with one out now. Bad start for Clark! Second straight game the Heels have scored in the 1st.
