Alex Urban’s walk off home run, his first career homer, propelled Clemson past Georgia Southern 6-4 in North Augusta, Tuesday. It was Clemson’s first walkoff homer since Logan Davidson victimized North Carolina in 2019. Caden Grice got the Tigers going with a three-run homer in the first, his sixth of the season. Kier Meredith also went deep for Clemson (9-9), his first of the season.
Head coach Monte Lee employed five pitchers. Starter Carter Raffield and relievers Rasesh Pandya, Rob Hughes, Geoffrey Gilbert and Nick Clayton (2-0) scattered four hits, allowing only two earned runs.
The Tigers will next return to conference play with a three-game set at Boston College. First pitch of the series is scheduled for 4 p.m., Friday.
