Orange Rallies to Top Purple 13-11 Thursday

CLEMSON, S.C. – In the first of three Orange & Purple scrimmages to conclude fall practice, the Orange squad rallied from an 11-8 deficit with five runs in the eighth inning to top the Purple team 13-11 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Thursday. The final two scrimmages are Friday (seven innings) at 4 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at Fluor Field in Greenville, S.C.

Three straight two-out singles by Steven Duggar, Eli White and Andrew Cox highlighted the Orange’s five-run eighth inning.

Jolly led the Orange team by going 3-for-6 with a game-high four RBIs, while White scored a game-high four runs.

Leadoff batter Tyler Slaton led the Purple squad by going 5-for-5 with two doubles, three RBIs, two runs, one walk and a steal. K.J. Bryant went 3-for-5 with a double, triple, two RBIs and two runs as well.

Alex Eubanks earned the win in 3.0 innings pitched in relief, while Paul Campbell pitched a perfect ninth inning to record the save.
