Game 1: Clemson 6 VT 4:

Davis Sharpe earned his fourth win of the year by going six innings and striking out six. Carson Spiers closed out the game to pick up his eigth save of the year. Offensively, the Tigers were led by Grayson Byrd who went three for three with a second inning home run. The Tigers held a 6-1 lead going into the seventh, but the Hokies were able to claw their way back into the game, with help from Kerry Carpenter’s two run triple. But Spiers pitching proved to be too much for Virginia Tech, and the Tigers won the series opener.

Game 2: Clemson 14 VT 1:

Once again, Clemson had a huge day offensively on Saturday. As our own Jonathan Smith pointed out, the Tigers have enjoyed Saturday’s this season:

The Tigers had a nice seven run sixth inning to help put the finishing touches on an already great day. Mat Clark moved to 6-0 on the year by going six innings and allowed just one run on two hits.

Game 3: Clemson 12 VT 9:

The Tigers got after it early by putting up half their runs in the first inning. The Hokies were able to fight back with some middle inning runs, but a five run seventh inning put the game out of reach for VT. Holt Jones got his second win of the year in relief, going three innings, allowing four hits and striking out four.
