Clemson had to win twice Sunday to stay alive in their NCAA baseball regional. The Tigers did just that, so tonight they meet Oklahoma State for a third time. The Cowboys beat the Tigers by a run on Saturday night. Last night the Tigers returned the favor 15-1. Tiger coach Jack Leggett says it was a great win but nothing from that game will carry over to tonight.

Second baseman Mike Freeman was one of many offensive heroes for the Tigers Sunday. He had five hits and four RBIs on the day, including his fourth home run of the season. Freeman says if nothing else, the wins yesterday give the team a boost of confidence going into tonight.
