Clemson takes down No. 1 Florida State 9-3 to start series

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Daniel Gossett allowed just one run on four hits with eight strikeouts in 7.1 innings pitched to lead No. 17 Clemson to a 9-3 win against No. 1 Florida State at Doug Kingsmore Stadium Friday night. The Tigers (14-7, 6-1 ACC) took a 1-0 lead in the series against the Seminoles (17-4, 5-2 ACC).

Gossett (2-0) earned the win by tossing 7.1 strong innings, allowing just four hits (three singles, one double) with eight strikeouts. Florida State starter Luke Weaver (4-2) suffered the loss.

"He pitched really well tonight," head coach Jack Leggett said of Gossett. "'Goose' was good and he was in charge. He did an excellent job for us. I would have loved to keep him in there, but we knew we had [Matt] Campbell in the bullpen if we needed him. We got a little momentum early in the game offensively and we swung the bats well."

Clemson scored two runs in the second inning and never relinquished the lead. Garrett Boulware belted a solo homer to center in the third inning, then the Tigers added three runs in the fifth inning thanks to five two-out hits.
