Tanner Steffy drove in three runs and hit the first two home runs of his collegiate career, Luke Stageberg homered for the second straight game and the College of Charleston exploded for a pair of big innings as the Cougars defeated Clemson in back-to-back seasons for the first time in history with a 13-6 win on Tuesday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The Cougars hit a trio of solo home runs – two by Steffy and one by Stageberg – and put up four runs in the fifth and six in the ninth to blitz Clemson for the second time in as many seasons. Steffy went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and an RBI single while Stageberg posted a 3-for-4 effort of his own with a solo shot and a two-run double. Charleston stretched a 2-1 lead into a 6-1 advantage with four runs in the fifth before breaking the game open with a six-spot in the ninth.

STANDOUT PERFORMANCE

Steffy put his powerful bat on display with two ringing home runs – the first two of his collegiate career – including a missile to left center on the first pitch of the fourth inning. The sophomore DH added another key base hit with an RBI single to drive in the first run of the ninth. Steffy’s three hits on Tuesday night mark a career high.
