Clemson's coach Leggett earns 900th win, beats Ga. Southern

STATESBORO, GA. -- Tyler Slaton's two-run homer in the fourth inning gave the Tigers a 5-4 lead, the eventual final score in No. 13 Clemson's 5-4 win at Georgia Southern at J.I. Clements Stadium Wednesday afternoon. The win was the 900th for Jack Leggett as head coach at Clemson. The Tigers (13-7) evened the two-game, midweek series against Georgia Southern (17-5).

The back-and-forth game saw the Eagles take a 1-0 lead in the first inning, then Clemson scored two unearned runs on a two-out error in the second inning. The Eagles regained the lead with two runs in the third inning before Slaton's second long ball of the season gave Clemson the lead in the fourth inning.

Freshman righthander Drew Moyer (1-0) earned his first career victory by pitching 4.0 scoreless innings in relief of two-hit ball. Matt Campbell pitched a scoreless ninth inning to record his fourth save of the season. Eagle reliever Eric Alonzo (2-2) suffered the loss.
