Watch Clemson coach Erik Bakich, players talk win over Coastal Carolina

For the second straight day, top-seeded Clemson earned a 4-3 victory at the Clemson Regional of the NCAA Baseball Tournament Saturday at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The Tigers (43-14 overall) got a go-ahead RBI sacrifice fly from Cam Cannarella in the top of the ninth inning to defeat third-seeded Coastal Carolina (35-24). Cannarella finished with three RBIs, and Jacob Hinderleider had five hits in a perfect 5-for-5 day at the plate.

Coastal Carolina and fourth-seeded High Point will play an elimination game at noon EDT Sunday. The Tigers are scheduled to face the winner of that game at 6 p.m. High Point eliminated second-seeded Vanderbilt at the Clemson Regional on Saturday.
