Box Score

CLEMSON, SC– Tiger Kurt Bultmann went 2-3 and scored four runs and Patrick Boyd added three more runs to lead Clemson to a 12-9 win over the Furman Paladins tonight April 13, at Tiger Field.

Clemson improves to 20-16 on the season while Furman drops to 15-18 on the year.

Bultmann scored in his first four at bats to become just the fifth player in Clemson history to reach 200 runs scored in his career. He currently has a career total of 202.
