On Tuesday, Freshman righthander Daniel Gossett struck out 13 batters and three Tigers hit long balls in Clemson's 11-0 win over Winthrop at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The Tigers improved to 15-13, while the Eagles dropped to 9-21. The start of the game, which was slated for 6:30 PM, was delayed 82 minutes due to inclement weather.

Gossett (3-2) was masterful in his first career start at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. In 7.0 innings pitched, he allowed just three hits (all singles), no runs, and no walks with a career-high 13 strikeouts. His 13 strikeouts were the most by a Tiger since May 31, 2009, when freshman lefthander Chris Dwyer totaled 13 strikeouts against Oklahoma State in the Tigers' 15-1 win in the Clemson Regional.

Today, the Tigers host Western Carolina. Clemson and Western Carolina have met 68 times on the diamond, with the Tigers leading 54-14 in the series dating back to the 1974 season. The two have played at least one game every year since 1978.

Earlier this season on March 14 at Hennon Stadium, the Catamounts topped the Tigers 8-4 behind 14 hits. In 2011, the Tigers won 12-3 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium and 6-4 in eight innings at Hennon Stadium.

The Tigers lead 38-4 in games played at Clemson, all of which have been played at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Jack Leggett has a 28-9 mark against Western Carolina as Clemson’s head coach, including a 19-3 record at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Leggett served as head coach at Western Carolina from 1983-91 and won 302 games in nine seasons there. He was also 3-15 against the Tigers as the Catamount skipper.

Western Carolina’s starting pitcher for Wednesday’s game has yet to be announced.

The Tigers will start junior righthander Jonathan Meyer (1-2, 3.51 ERA) on Wednesday night. The San Diego, CA native has made 10 relief appearances and two starts for a total of 25.2 innings pitched. He has given up 31 hits (.287 opponents’ batting average) and three walks with 22 strikeouts.
Go Tigers!

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million
