Nevada Baseball Falls to Number 6 Clemson

Posted: Updated:

Nevada (14-30) senior Justin Bridgman hit his first career home run in his 580th career at bat for the Wolf Pack leading off the game at No. 6 Clemson (35-11) but the Tigers scored the next four runs on the way to the 5-2 nonconference victory at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.  The Wolf Pack dropped to 14-30 on the season while Clemson improved to 35-11.  Game two of the three-game series is scheduled for 1 p.m. PT on Sunday.

After Bridgman’s homer staked Nevada to the early 1-0 lead Clemson got a solo home run from Chris Williams leading off the second to tie the game at 1-1.  The Tigers scored three times on three hits in the bottom of the fourth to move in front to stay 4-1. 

Bridgman’s third hit of the day in the top of the fifth was a double on the right field line that scored Marco Valenzuela who reached on a walk and it was 4-2 but Nevada would get no closer.  CU scored the final run of the game in the sixth on a solo home run to make it a 5-2 victory for the Tigers.

Pack starter Trevor Charpie (2-6) allowed five runs on seven hits in 6.2 innings and suffered the loss.  Charlie Barnes (5-3) earned the victory giving up two runs, one earned in 6.1 innings on the mound.  Jeremy Beasley (1) got his first save of the season, pitching a scoreless ninth inning.

Bridgman (3-for-4,R,2RBI) topped the Pack with three hits and drove in two with one coming on his first career home run.  He extended his team season-high hit streak to 11 games.  Williams (3-for-3,2R,2RBI) had three hits and two RBI for the Tigers.
