CLEMSON, S.C. (April 27, 2022) – ETSU Softball hung in with No. 18 Clemson on Wednesday afternoon, ultimately falling by the final of 6-2 in Clemson, S.C. With the loss, the Bucs drop to 6-42 on the season, while the Tigers improve to 34-14.
ETSU jumped ahead in the first inning following a two-run blast off the bat of Sara Muir (Sequatchie, Tenn.), her second homer of the season. After Andrea Sarhatt (Knoxville, Tenn.) reached base with a one-out single, Muir elevated her first home run since Feb. 19 against Morehead State, providing ETSU with the 2-0 advantage.
The Bucs’ lead was short lived as former Furman Paladin Marissa Guimbarda launched a three-run homer to straight away center, shifting the favor towards the Tigers with the 3-2 advantage. The following inning, Cammy Pereira drove in two more Clemson runs with a two-run triple, pushing the lead to 5-2. Clemson’s final run of the game came off an RBI double from Valerie Cagle, providing the host squad with a four-run cushion.
ETSU’s final hope was in the top of the seventh inning with a pair of runners on and two away. However, a harmless pop up to shortstop in the final at bat halted any hopes of come-from-behind upset.
