CLEMSON, S.C. - No. 13 Clemson avoided a series sweep with a 2-1 victory over the sixth-ranked Virginia baseball team Sunday at Dave Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson, S.C.
Sean Doolittle (Tabernacle, N.J.) started for Virginia and threw six strong innings, giving up one run, five hits and two walks while striking out six. He drops to 6-3 on the year with the defeat.
Clemson southpaw Ryan Hinson (4-1) tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing one hit and five walks with five strikeouts. He did not allow a hit until a Patrick Wingfield (Winchester, Va.) double in the seventh inning. Alan Farina pitched the final 2 2/3 innings to earn his first save.
Clemson (26-13, 11-7 ACC) took an early lead in the first inning on Andy D'Alessio's bloop single to left field which scored D.J. Mitchell.
The Tigers added a run in the eighth inning on a Marquez Smith solo home run to left field.
Despite not registering a hit until the seventh, the Cavaliers (34-9, 13-7 ACC) had several baserunners throughout the day and ended up leaving 10 runners on base. The Cavaliers broke through for their lone run in the ninth inning on a Greg Miclat (Concord, N.C.) single to score Tyler Cannon (Pigeon Forge, Tenn.).
Virginia returns home to Davenport Field at 7 p.m. Wednesday to begin a nine-game homestand, taking on James Madison.
