CLEMSON, S.C. (CU SID) -- A five-run sixth inning broke open a close game in No. 15 Clemson’s 13-2 victory over Furman at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Tuesday night. The Tigers (18-9) took a 1-0 lead in the home-and-home season series over the Paladins (11-18), as the two will play at Fluor Field in Greenville on May 13.

The Paladins scored an unearned run in the top of the first inning, then Clemson responded with single runs in the bottom of the first and second. The Tigers broke the game open with five runs on four hits in the sixth inning, highlighted by Weston Wilson’s two-run double, then scored three runs in both the seventh and eighth innings. Wilson led the Tigers at the plate by going 3-for-3 with a double and three RBIs.

Reliever Zack Erwin (2-1) earned the win by tossing 6.0 scoreless innings of two-hit ball with five strikeouts. Furman starter Billy Greenfield (1-3) suffered the loss. Clemson hosts Winthrop on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Fans can get a Family Four Pack of tickets (two adults, two youth) for only $20 at ClemsonTigers.com or at the gate.
