But it wasn’t for lack of trying. The Tigers’ season was put into the glove of center fielder Cam Cannarella.

Clemson head coach Erik Bakich was ejected from the game in the top of the 13th after Clemson pulled ahead on Alden Mathes solo home run. The broadcast initially thought it was because Mathes spiked his bat in front of his dugout on the home run. Mathes was reportedly warned about the bat spike, which apparently upset the Tigers’ bench.

Bakich fired up the crowd on his way out.

Florida would rally for the win and is now heading to Omaha to compete for a national championship.
