Clemson ousted; Liberty plays Gamecocks tonight

  • Follow Clemson

COLUMBIA — Trey Lambert gave up one run in 7 2-3 innings, Bryan Aanderud had a two-run single among his four hits and Liberty eliminated Clemson from the Columbia Regional with a 3-1 victory Sunday.

The Flames (36-28) of the Big South Conference advanced to face undefeated South Carolina tonight. Should Liberty win, it would set up a final showdown between the schools for the regional title Monday.

The Flames trailed 1-0 in the fourth when Aanderud’s two-run single put them ahead for good. Lambert (8-3) did the rest, keeping the Tigers (40-22) off balance throughout. Closer Ashton Perritt came on in the eighth and got the final four outs for his 10th save.

Trey Wimmer drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth, his seventh RBI in two NCAA tournament victories against Clemson this weekend.

The Tigers finished the season losing seven of their final eight games.
