Jay Baum went 3-for-5 with two RBIs and the go-ahead, run-scoring single in the eighth inning as No. 13 Clemson rallied for a 9-7 win over Eastern Michigan on Sunday at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
The Tigers (2-1) trailed 7-6 entering the eighth inning before the Tigers scored three runs without hitting the ball out of the infield. A costly two-out Eastern Michigan error extended the inning and allowed Clemson to score three unearned runs. The Eagles (1-2) had trailed 4-0 and 6-4 before they took a 7-6 lead with three runs in the seventh inning.
Senior righthander Matt Campbell (1-0) earned the win by pitching the final 2.2 innings. He gave up two hits, one unearned run, and one walk with three strikeouts.
Clemson will host Maine in a three-game series starting at 4 p.m. Friday.
