CLEMSON, SC - I was courtside in Greensboro, waiting for the Tigers and Hoos to tip-off in the ACC Semifinal, and as I was posting play-by-play for the baseball game, it looked like the Tigers were doomed on Friday night. They trailed 8-2 in the 8th, but a single by Cannarella and HR by Ingle made it 8-4 and set the table for an epic comeback in the 9th! The Tigers loaded the bases with one out, and representing the tying run at the plate was Ingle, who homered in his previous at bat. ingle singled to make it 8-5 with the bases still loaded for Taylor, who would strike out. Down to their final out, the winning run at the plate was Billy Amick, who had not started a game yet this season and was making just his 3rd appearance as a pinch hitter. He pinched for Abrams in the 6th and struck out, but he singled in the 8th. Amick crushed the second pitch to left center, sending the loyal remaining fans at Doug Kingsmore into a frenzy.
With his heroics, Amick earned himself his first start of the season on Saturday, and the Tigers went on to beat GSU 10-2 and 10-7 in Saturday's doubleheader for the sweep! They definitely rode that momentum from Friday night into the doubleheader.
