#Clemson drops series opener at Louisville, 7-2

Third baseman Max Wagner extended his hitting streak to ten games, Friday (Clemson University Athletics)

Clemson’s offense was held scoreless for the first eight innings and managed just six hits in a 7-2 loss at Louisville, Friday. The loss breaks up the Tigers’ three-game winning streak. Max Wagner (3-4) upped his average to .393 and extended his hitting streak to ten games with a first-inning double.

Louisville came out of the gate swinging, posting a run in the second inning, three in the third and three more in the fifth. All seven runs were charged to starter Mack Anglin (4-4), although three were unearned. Nick Hoffman, Casey Tallent and Nick Clayton shut out the Cardinals over the last four innings, but the damage had been done. Clemson (28-15, 6-12) hitters offered little support, fanning 14 times against just one walk.

Clemson and Louisville will meet in Game 2 of the series at 1 p.m., Saturday.
