OMAHA, Neb. – Clemson leads Oklahoma 6-1 after five innings in Game 8 of the 2010 College World Series at Rosenblatt Stadium.


The game was suspended at 10:08 p.m. CT due to lightning and rain in the area. The decision was made at 10:40 p.m. to suspend the contest and resume on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.


OU snapped a scoreless tie in the top of the fourth as Cody Reine had a one-out bunt single, stole second and scored on a base hit by Caleb Bushyhead.


The Tigers plated four in the bottom of the frame. Sooner starter Bobby Shore walked the bases loaded before allowing a run-scoring single by John Hinson. Jack Mayfield relieved Shore and gave up a sacrifice fly to Richie Shaffer and a two-run single to Spencer Kieboom to make it 4-1.


Clemson added a pair of unearned runs in the fifth. Kyle Parker crushed a ball off the top of the fence in center for a two-out triple. Brad Miller lofted a fly ball that was missed by left-fielder Max White. Parker scored and Miller ended up at second. Hinson followed with a base hit that brought in Miller to make it 6-1.


Scott Weismann pitched five innings for the Tigers, allowing three hits and one run with two walks and four strikeouts.


The Florida State-TCU game will start 50 minutes after the conclusion of the suspended game, but not earlier than 6 p.m.
