I’ve corrected some minor issues that generally occur when an official scoring ruling is changed after a game is complete and believe the numbers below are as accurate as possible.

Clemson wide receiver Hunter Renfrow (13) makes the catch .GWINN DAVIS / FOR THE POST AND COURIER

Mike Williams will soon be in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean Clemson is without talent returning at wide receiver in 2017 as we highlight in this series.

First up – Hunter Renfrow leaps/falls backwards, secures the catch and scores in the opener vs. Auburn.

Clemson is averaging 1.15 runs per inning when the leadoff man gets on and only .40 runs when the leadoff man makes an out.

Since moving to the leadoff spot in game 2 of the Notre Dame series (7 games) Chase Pinder is 10 for 26 (.385) with 10 runs scored and 3 stolen bases.

Clemson has 30 multiple run innings, while their opponents have 18.

Since moving to the leadoff spot permanently (?) in the second game of the Notre Dame series, Chase Pinder is 7 for 13 (.538), with 7 runs, 3 walks, 3 doubles and 4 RBI.  This is a different offense with Pinder at the top and Chris Williams protecting Beer.  It’s unlikely Pinder will continue at his current .393 pace, but it’s also unlikely Beer stays at is current pace (.255).  They are likely to both end up somewhere between those 2 numbers.

Nearly a third of the way through the season, the Tigers pitching staff has been remarkably consistent.

A slight crack appeared in the bullpen in game two of the Yale series as Clemson allowed 5 inherited runners to score after allowing 8 total to score in previous 16 games.

Ryley Gilliam has not made an appearance since the middle game of the South Carolina series.
