Clemson first baseman Jack Crighton was ejected from the Tigers' 11-10 13-inning loss to Florida in Game 2 of their super regional series after an altercation between the two teams.

With the Gators up 2-0 in the top of the second inning, Florida pitcher Jac Caglianone and Clemson's Nolan Nawrocki collided on a tag to end the inning after Nawrocki hit a dribbler down the first-base line. Caglianone and Nawrocki exchanged words and needed to be separated, and dugouts cleared for both teams.

During the play, Crighton had rounded third base. By the time the altercation between Caglianone and Nawrocki started, he ran over to the skirmish with the rest of his teammates.

After a delay, Crighton, who began the play as a runner on second base, was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct. During the confrontation, he appeared to make contact with an umpire.

Both dugouts received unsportsmanlike conduct warnings, while Tryston McCladdie replaced Crighton at first base.

Crighton will be suspended one game as a result of his ejection.

In the top of the 13th inning, Clemson head coach Erik Bakich and assistant Jack Leggett were both ejected. They were thrown out for their conduct after Clemson's Alden Mathes ripped an 0-2 pitch to right field for the go-ahead run. Mathes threw down his bat, as if to spike it, before beginning his trot around the bases but was not ejected for excessive celebration.

The NCAA did not immediately provide an explanation for why Bakich and Leggett were tossed; they will each be suspended for two games.

In 35 games this year, Crighton posted a .307 batting average with 12 RBIs in 129 plate appearances.
