Chaffins picks up win over Clemson

New London graduate Corey Chaffins picked up his first win of the season as Eastern Michigan’s baseball team defeated the No. 4-ranked Clemson Tigers, 7-6, in the second game of a three-game set on Saturday.

Chaffins pitched 3 1/3 innings in relief. He was brought in as Tim Combs seemed a bit rattled as he walked the only two batters he faced to bring in the fifth run for the Tigers. Chaffins then entered the game and got out of a bases loaded jam by striking out the clean-up hitter, Shaffer, to end the inning.

Chaffins then shut down the Tigers in the final two frames, taking just seven batters to get the final six outs to preserve the Eagles first win of the season and first win over a ranked opponent since opening day last season when they defeated No. 25 Kansas.
The Eagles improve to 1-1 on the season with the win while Clemson falls to 1-1 with the loss.
