Tigers Shutout Louisiana, Advance to Super Regionals

May 22, 2022

CLEMSON, S.C. - The tenth-seeded Clemson Softball program advanced to its first Super Regional in only its second full season with an 8-0 run-rule victory over Louisiana in front of 1,760 fans in a packed McWhorter Stadium. Senior Cammy Pereira and sophomore Valerie Cagle combined to go 5-for-6 with six RBIs, while Millie Thompson threw five shutout innings against the Ragin Cajuns (47-13), as Clemson went 3-0 and did not allow a run in three Regional games.

The Tigers (42-15) recorded eight runs on nine hits, including a massive seven-run fourth inning, capped by Cagle’s three-run home run down the right field line. Thompson threw her second run-rule shutout of the weekend, allowing just one hit and two base runners on the day. In two starts in the Regional, she threw 10 innings with nine strikeouts, with opponents going just 1-for-32 against the Clemson defense with Thompson in the circle.

No. 10 seed Clemson advances to play the No. 7 seed Oklahoma State in the Stillwater Super Regional.
