Baseball Downs ACC Rival Maryland

March 20, 1999

Box Score

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Clemson pitcher Mike Paradis allowed just two runs on six hits, leading the Tigers (12-8, 2-0 ACC) to a 9-2 victory over Maryland (4-9-1, 0-2 ACC) today at Shipley Field.

Clemson jumped out to a 3-0 lead after three innings as second baseman Kurt Bultman drilled a two-run double off of Maryland starting pitcher Fred Weaver (Hummelstown, Pa.). The Terps, however, cut the deficit to 3-2 in the fourth inning, as third baseman Brian Patenaude (Marietta, Ga.) lined a two-run single down the left field line. In the ensuing three innings, however, Clemson scored six runs to seal the win.

The two teams conclude their three-game series tomorrow at 12 noon. The game was originally scheduled for 1 p.m., but due to the weather forecast tomorrow, which calls for rain in the mid afternoon, the game will start an hour earlier.
