Clemson sends No. 11 Miami to 0-2 in ACC tournament with walk-off single

  Clemson improved to 2-0 in the ACC tournament.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Steve Wilkerson hit a walk-off single in the ninth inning to score Tyler Slaton, giving Clemson a 3-2 win against No. 11 Miami (Fla.) in the ACC tournament on Thursday. The Tigers (36-22) improved to 2-0 in the ACC Tournament, while the Hurricanes (40-17) fell to 0-2 in the tourney.

With the victory, Jack Leggett registered his 1,300th career win in his 35th season as a head coach at the Division I level. He tied Bob Bennett for ninth place on the all-time wins list.

The Tigers trailed 2-0 before Jay Baum's groundout scored Steven Duggar in the third inning. Jon McGibbon came off the bench and hit a towering solo homer, his third long ball of the season, in the sixth inning to tie the score 2-2. After getting out of a jam in the top of the ninth inning, the Tigers put runners on first and second with one out before Wilkerson belted the first pitch through the right side to score Slaton.

Tigers reliever Drew Moyer (5-1) picked up the win by recording the final out in the ninth inning. Starter Daniel Gossett allowed just seven hits, two runs and two walks with eight strikeouts in 8.1 innings pitched. Hurricanes reliever Bryan Garcia (5-4) suffered the loss.
