AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Casey Harman pitched a five-hitter to lead Clemson past Auburn 5-2 on Saturday night in the Auburn Regional.
Clemson (40-21) got its second straight dominant pitching performance to follow Scott Weismann's strong outing and will face the Auburn-Southern Miss winner Sunday night needing just one win to advance.
Auburn (41-20) got its second solo home run of the night when Hunter Morris drove the ball over the left-field fence to open the bottom of the ninth. Harman then gave up a single to Tony Caldwell — who had the first solo shot — but got Dan Gamache to ground into a double play. Ryan Jenkins popped up to end it.
Mike Freeman hit a two-run homer to highlight a three-run first, and Clemson added two more in the fourth.
