Brody Koerner, Jonathan Meyer and Zack Erwin combined to allow only two of 16 baserunners to score in Clemson's 5-2 victory over Morehead State on Wednesday at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson.

Trailing 2-1, the Tigers (13-7) plated a run in the fifth inning to tie the score and took the lead for good in the sixth inning on Jon McGibbon's run-scoring single. Meyer and Erwin combined to work out of several jams in the final five innings without allowing a run.

Meyer (1-0) earned the win, allowing six hits, no runs and no walks with three strikeouts in four innings. Erwin pitched a hitless ninth inning for his first career save. Koerner gave up one earned run on four hits in four innings in his first career start.

Matt Anderson (0-3), the first of four Eagle pitchers, got the loss. In 5 1-3 innings, he yielded four hits, three runs and two walks with six strikeouts.

McGibbon went 2 for 4 with three RBIs to lead the Tigers. Garrett Boulware was 2 for 2 with an RBI, two runs and two walks, while Steven Duggar and Tyler Krieger added two hits and one run apiece.

Chris Robinson went 3 for 4 with a double and RBI to pace the Eagles (7-14).
