The Clemson vs. Winthrop baseball game scheduled for Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium has been postponed due to wet field conditions and inclement weather.

The two teams are now scheduled to play on Wednesday, February 27 at 3 p.m. Game 7 tickets will be honored at the gate for entry.

Pitching assignments are expected to remain the same as originally announced.

Winthrop will start freshman lefthander Sam Kmiec (0-1, 2.08 ERA). The Middletown, DE native has made five relief appearances for a total of 4.1 innings pitched. He has allowed six hits (.353 opponents’ batting average) and no walks with two strikeouts.

The Tigers will counter with freshman lefthander Matthew Crownover (0-0, 27.00 ERA). The Ringgold, GA native has made one relief appearance for a total of 0.2 innings pitched. He has surrendered two hits (.500 opponents’ batting average) and one walk with no strikeouts.

Crownover will be the first Tiger lefthander to start a game on the mound since April 10, 2011 against Maryland, when lefthander Will Lamb started in the Terrapins’ 7-6 win at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. Clemson has gone 101 games in a row with starting a righthander on the mound.

Winthrop, led by third-year Head Coach Tom Riginos, enters Tuesday’s game at Clemson with a 2-5 overall record after winning one of four games at home against Delaware State and Eastern Kentucky over the weekend. The Eagles are 0-1 on opponents’ home fields in 2013.
