The Tigers had 12 hits after four innings, the most hits allowed by a Seminole starting pitcher this season.

Demmink recorded his third hit of the night with a single to left-center to begin the fifth, and went to second on a single through the left side by Chalk. Smith then tied the Clemson record for doubles in a game with his third two-bagger of the night down the left-field line to plate Demmink and Chalk.
