CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Stan Widmann’s two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning put Clemson ahead for good and lifted the Tigers into the College World Series.

Widmann’s hit capped a second straight late-game rally for Clemson (52-14) against the Golden Eagles. Tyler Colvin had a walk-off grand slam in the ninth in the Tigers’ 11-8 come-from-behind victory Friday.

Down 5-3 heading into the eighth, Taylor Harbin’s RBI single cut into the lead. After a walk to power-hitting Andy D’Alessio loaded the bases, Widmann hit a rising liner to left out of reach of shortstop Tim Torres that brought home Colvin and Harbin.

Widmann rounded first, then pumped his fist in celebration as the crowd cheered loudly at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Reliever David Kopp (6-1) earned the win for Clemson while Golden Eagles reliever Erik Crichton (5-1) suffered the loss.
