Thomas Brittle blooped a one-out single to right field in the 12th inning and Tyler Slaton slid home safely in a close play to give Clemson a 7-6 walkoff victory over #17 N.C. State in front of 4,964 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Friday night.

The Tigers, who took a 1-0 series lead, improved to 20-15 overall and 9-7 in the ACC. The Wolfpack fell to 22-10 overall and 9-7 in ACC play.

The Tigers held a 4-0 lead until N.C. State scored three runs in the top of the sixth inning before Clemson responded with a run in the bottom of the sixth. N.C. State scored three more runs on only one hit in the seventh inning to take a one-run lead before the Tigers tied the score with a run in the eighth inning.

Both teams squandered scoring opportunities in extra innings before Brittle's game-winning hit in the 12th inning gave Clemson its second one-run win of the season.

Scott Firth (3-0) tossed 6.1 strong innings in relief to earn the win. He gave up two hits, three runs (one earned), and three walks with four strikeouts. Starter Kevin Brady allowed four hits, three runs, and three walks with four strikeouts in 5.2 innings pitched.

Anthony Tzamtzis (3-3), the last of four Wolfpack pitchers, suffered the loss. He yielded three hits, one run, and three walks with five strikeouts in 3.2 innings pitched.

Clemson and N.C. State have met 182 times on the diamond, with the Tigers holding a 110-71-1 lead in the series dating back to the 1921 season. The two have faced each other at least one time every season since 1953. The Tigers have won 11 of the last 15 games in the series.

Last year in Raleigh, the Wolfpack defeated the Tigers twice in three games. Clemson then topped N.C. State 6-3 in the ACC Tournament in Durham, NC. In the three-game series at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in 2010, Clemson won all three games by scores of 12-7, 12-6, and 7-6. Then in the ACC Tourney, the Wolfpack downed the Tigers 13-8.

The Tigers hold a 56-22-1 lead over the Wolfpack in games played at Clemson and a 43-14 lead at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Clemson also holds an 87-56 advantage in ACC regular-season games.

Jack Leggett has a 44-21 record against N.C. State as Clemson’s head coach, including a 22-5 mark at Doug Kingsmore Stadium and a 18-8 record against top-25 ranked Wolfpack squads. Leggett was 7-18 against N.C. State as head coach at Western Carolina, meaning he is 51-39 all-time against the Wolfpack.

In game-two, the Wolfpack will send out freshman lefthander Carlos Rodon (5-0, 1.41 ERA) on the mound. The Holly Springs, NC native has made eight starts and one relief appearance for a total of 57.1 innings pitched. He has given up 41 hits (.202 opponents’ batting average) and 15 walks with 67 strikeouts.

Clemson will counter with junior righty Dominic Leone (5-2, 5.18 ERA) on Saturday. The Norwich, CT native has made eight starts for a total of 40.0 innings pitched. He has allowed 37 hits (.261 opponents’ batting average) and 22 walks with 34 strikeouts.

In game-three, N.C. State will start freshman righty Logan Jernigan (3-1, 5.08 ERA) on the mound. The Four Oaks, NC native has made seven starts and one relief appearance for a total of 28.1 innings pitched. He has allowed 15 hits (.147 opponents’ batting average) and 20 walks with 35 strikeouts.

The Tigers will counter with sophomore righty Kevin Pohle (4-1, 1.94 ERA) on Sunday. The Saint Louis, MO native has made six starts and two relief appearances for a total of 41.2 innings pitched. He has given up 39 hits (.257 opponents’ batting average) and 14 walks with 27 strikeouts.

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

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

To illustrate the quality of the investment of the upper deck.  The $13.5 million dollar investment is recovered in just 3 years (7 home games per year) in ticket sales.  Each game Clemson sells out the North Upper Deck, over $600,000 goes towards Clemson Athletics.
