Garrett Boulware's three-run homer capped a six-run fourth inning in Clemson's 10-5 win over Morehead State at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Tuesday night. It was the first meeting between the two teams since 1997.

Clemson (12-7) trailed 3-2 through three innings, but the Tigers erupted for six runs in the fourth inning to take the lead for good.

The five-run victory gave Jack Leggett his 1,236th career win as a head coach, moving him ahead of Larry Cochell into sole possession of 12th place in all-time coaching wins at the Division I level.

Mike Kent (1-1), the third of four Tiger pitchers, earned the win by tossing three scoreless innings. Dan Hyatt (0-1), the second of five hurlers, suffered the loss for the Eagles (7-13).

Brittle led Clemson's 12-hit attack by going 3-for-4 with an RBI and two steals. Boulware went 2-for-4 with a homer and four RBIs
