The Starting Pitchers
In game-three, William & Mary will start sophomore righty Jason Inghram on the mound.  The Chesapeake, VA native had a 3-2 record and 3.20 ERA in 39.1 innings pitched over 16 appearances (six starts) in 2012.  He allowed 35 hits (.241 opponents’ batting average) and 13 walks with 41 strikeouts.

The Tigers will counter with senior righthander Scott Firth on Sunday.  The Buffalo Grove, IL native had a 4-0 record and 2.09 ERA in 51.2 innings pitched over 24 relief appearances in 2012.  He gave up 44 hits (.229 opponents’ batting average) and 33 walks with 44 strikeouts.  Firth will be making his first start since 2011 when he earned the win against Sacred Heart in the Clemson Regional on June 3.

The Series
On Friday, Shane Kennedy's two-out, two-run homer in the eighth inning scored the game's only runs to lift Clemson to a 2-0 win over William & Mary in front of 5,947 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. 
On Saturday, William & Mary totaled 16 hits to defeat Clemson 11-2 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.  The Tribe, who evened the series 1-1, improved to 1-1 on the season.  The Tigers dropped to 1-1.  It was William & Mary's first-ever win over Clemson in five all-time meetings.

The Tribe broke the game open with three runs in the third inning, two runs in the fourth inning, and two more runs in the fifth inning.  In all, William & Mary combined to score its 11 runs in five different innings.  In each of those five innings, the Tribe's leadoff batter was retired. 

Starter John Farrell (1-0) earned the win by tossing 7.0 effective innings.  He allowed nine hits, two runs, and one walk with four strikeouts.  J.T. Castner and Mitchell Aker both pitched a scoreless inning to close out the game.

Sophomore Patrick Andrews (0-1) suffered the loss in his first career start.  He yielded five hits, four runs, and one walk with three strikeouts in 3.0 innings pitched.  Six pitchers in all took the mound for the Tigers, including freshman Clate Schmidt, who pitched the final 2.2 innings without allowing a run.

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.

The North Upper Deck is slightly larger than the South Upper Deck. The reason for this is simple. Engineers had more room to build behind the North Upper Deck than they did behind the South Upper Deck (with Cemetery Hill behind the South). This al…
