College of Charleston transfer helps Tigers beat former school in 11th

Former College of Charleston outfielder Thomas Brittle tied the score in the 11th inning with a two-out, run-scoring single, then Steve Wilkerson scored the walkoff run on a wild pitch later in the frame to lift Clemson to a 4-3 win over the Cougars in front of 5,030 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Saturday night.

The Tigers, who took a 1-0 series lead, improved to 27-19, while the Cougars dropped to 31-14. Clemson also improved to 22-0 all-time against College of Charleston.

The Tigers scored two runs in the first inning and added a hit in the second inning, but they went hitless and scoreless during the next eight innings. In the top of the 11th inning, Daniel Aldrich smacked his third double of the game, this time to plate the go-ahead run with no outs. However, Daniel Gossett did not allow Aldrich to score, which proved pivotal.

Brad Felder hit a one-out single in the bottom of the 11th inning. Later in the frame with two outs and Felder on third, Brittle, who transferred to Clemson after playing two seasons (2009,10) with the Cougar program, lined a single to left field to tie the score and extend his hitting streak to 19 games. Later in the inning with the bases loaded, Wilkerson scored on a wild pitch to send the Tigers to a one-run victory.

Gossett (5-2), the last of four Tiger pitchers, earned the win. In 4.1 innings pitched, he allowed three hits, one run, and one walk with eight strikeouts. The four Clemson hurlers combined for 13 strikeouts against only two walks.

David Peterson (1-2) suffered the loss, as he gave up two runs on two hits in the 11th inning. Starter Christian Powell, Kyle Owings, and Peterson combined to allow only four hits, but they issued seven walks and hit five batters. They also combined to strand 12 Tigers on base, including seven in scoring position.
