ACC: Clemson gets some breathing room

By Glenn Tanner - May 26, 2007

Florida State's Bryan Henry came into the day with a 14-0 record in 16 starts. In ACC play, he was 9-0 in 10 starts.

The best he can hope for today, however, is a no-decision, and he's on the hook for a loss after being knocked out in the sixth.

At the stretch, Clemson leads FSU 4-0.

After Henry fanned Andy D'Alessio to start the sixth, Taylor Harbin reached and went to second on an infield throwing error. He scored on Doug Hogan's single to left, making a good slide to the infield side of the plate to avoid the catcher's tag. That seemed to unnerve Henry, as he walked the next hitter, then gave up a sharp single to load the bases.

Mike Martin went to the bullpen (slowly, of course) to bring in Jimmy Marshall. He got a call third strike for the second out of the inning, but walked Brad Chalk on a 3-2 pitch to bring in the second run of the inning.

Final line on Henry: 5.1 innings, 9 hits, 4 runs, 2 earned, 1 walk, 5 Ks, and 101 pitches in his shortest outing since February.

David Copp is cruising on the mound for Clemson. He has retired 8 in a row and is around 90 pitches through seven frames.
