Jon McGibbon went 3-for-4 with a homer, double, and a career-high five RBIs to lead Clemson to a 12-5 victory over Furman in front of 5,610 fans at Fluor Field on Tuesday night.

The Tigers, who took a 1-0 lead in the season series, improved to 19-14 overall. The Paladins fell to 17-17 on the season. The two teams will square off again at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on May 15.

The Tigers scored two runs in the first inning, four runs in the third inning, and three runs in the top of the fourth inning to build a 9-0 lead. The Paladins fought back with four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. But the Tiger bullpen allowed just one run in the final 5.2 innings pitched and Clemson cruised to the seven-run victory.

David Haselden (2-1) pitched 1.2 scoreless innings in relief with three strikeouts to earn the win. Mike Kent recorded his first career save by tossing 4.0 effective innings. He gave up five hits, one run, and no walks with three strikeouts. Jonathan Meyer, Haselden, and Kent combined to strand 12 Paladins on base, including eight in scoring position.

The Tigers host Georgia on Wednesday.

Clemson and Georgia have met 221 times on the diamond, with Georgia holding a 117-102-2 lead in the series dating back to 1900. The two teams have played at least one game every year since 1959. Georgia is Clemson’s second-most-played rival in history, trailing only South Carolina (298).

The Tigers have won five games in a row in the series dating to Georgia’s 4-2 win at Clemson on April 1, 2009. Earlier this season at Foley Field, the Tigers totaled 16 hits in their 10-5 win at Georgia.

Last season, the Tigers won both games of the home-and-home series by scores of 11-5 (in Clemson) and 5-2 (in Athens). In 2010, Clemson also won both games by scores of 15-5 (in Athens) and 14-6 (in Clemson). The two teams have not split their season series since 2006.

The Tigers lead 55-46-2 at Clemson and 35-11 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Jack Leggett is 24-16 against Georgia as Clemson’s head coach, including a 14-3 record at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Leggett was also 3-12 against the Bulldogs as Western Carolina’s head coach, meaning he is 27-28 all-time against Georgia.

Georgia will start freshman righthander David Sosebee (2-0, 2.66 ERA) on the mound. The Cleveland, GA native has made five starts and one relief appearance for a total of 12.2 innings pitched. He has allowed 14 hits (.292 opponents’ batting average) and three walks with one strikeout.

Clemson will counter with freshman righty Daniel Gossett (3-2, 4.66 ERA) on Wednesday. The Lyman, SC native has made six relief appearances and four starts for a total of 29.0 innings pitched. He has surrendered 26 hits (.236 opponents’ batting average) and 10 walks with 37 strikeouts.

Go Tigers!

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

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
