Cats cruise past Clemson, 18-10


A packed crowd of 1,121 in Hennon Stadium, a regional TV audience courtesy of WMYA-TV, as well as a national audience on ESPN3 saw Western Carolina extend the nation’s longest Division I college baseball home winning streak to 18 as the Catamounts cruised to an 18-10 win over #15 Clemson at Hennon Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.

After the Tigers opened the game by scoring in the top of the first inning, the Catamounts took advantage of three Tiger errors and scored six runs in the bottom of the second. Then in the fourth inning, the Cats scored seven more runs on six hits to put the game out of reach.

Catamount freshman Bryan Sammons in his first career start picked up the win, while Clemson freshman Alex Bostic also making his first career start, suffered the loss.
