Wilson hit a long fly ball toward dead center field. Cannarella tracked it and made an unbelievable over-the-head catch for the final out to end the inning.

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.
