Clemson baseball Jack Crighton coach Erik Bakich ejected season-ending loss

Clemson baseball's season ends in ejections as Florida eliminates Tigers. Controversy, walk-off hit, and College World Series berth for Gators.

Clemson's baseball season came to a dramatic and eventful conclusion on Sunday in a heartbreaking loss to Florida in the NCAA baseball tournament. The game was filled with controversy and excitement, culminating in a walk-off win for the Gators in the 13th inning.

The game got off to a tense start when Florida's Jac Caglianone collided with Clemson's Nolan Nawracki, sparking a brief altercation between the two teams. Clemson's Jack Crighton was ejected from the game for his involvement in the incident, adding to the drama early on.

As the game progressed into extra innings, Clemson took the lead with a solo home run from Alden Mathes in the top of the 13th. However, more controversy arose when Mathes was suspected of throwing his bat, leading to an argument from head coach Erik Bakich and ultimately resulting in his ejection from the game.

Despite Clemson's efforts, Florida rallied in the bottom of the 13th to secure an 11-10 victory and advance to the College World Series in Omaha. The ejections of Crighton, Bakich, and former coach Jack Leggett added to the intensity of the game, leaving fans and players alike on edge.

With the conclusion of this game, the College World Series is set to begin on June 14, with teams from across the country vying for the championship title. The excitement and unpredictability of college baseball were on full display in this matchup, showcasing the passion and competitiveness of the sport at its highest level.
