Caleb Webster hit his first career home run in the fourth inning to give the Spartans a 1-0 lead, then the Tigers responded with four two-out runs in the fifth inning.

Cesar Trejo belted a solo homer in the seventh inning, then Michael Goss hit a two-out, run-scoring single in the top of the eighth inning to narrow Clemson’s lead to one run. Logan Davidson answered with a two-out, run-scoring single in the bottom of the eighth inning. Trejo hit his second solo homer of the game in the ninth inning to cut the Tigers’ lead in half before Krall closed the game in his first relief appearance of the season.
