Clemson shuts out No. 9 Florida State

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Zack Erwin pitched six scoreless innings of three-hit ball in Clemson’s 7-0 victory against No. 9 Florida State at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday night. The Tigers, who took a 2-0 lead in the series, improved to 30-25 overall and 15-13 in the ACC. The Seminoles dropped to 37-18 overall and 17-12 in ACC play.

With the win, Clemson assured itself either the No. 5 or No. 6 seed in the ACC Tournament, meaning the Tigers avoid a play-in game and will play at least three games at Durham Bulls Athletic Park next week. It also assured Clemson’s 21st winning ACC regular-season record in 22 years for coach Jack Leggett.

Erwin (6-4) earned the win by allowing just three hits, no runs and no walks with three strikeouts in six innings pitched. After a 101-minute rain delay in the middle of the seventh inning, Taylor Vetzel pitched the final 3.0 innings to record his fourth save of the season.

Erwin and Vetzel combined to face just three batters in the minimum thanks in large part to two double plays turned by the Tiger defense. Seminole starter Mike Compton (3-3) suffered the loss as he gave up seven hits, five runs (three earned) and two walks with six strikeouts in 4.2 innings pitched.

Reed Rohlman put Clemson on the scoreboard when he hit the first pitch of the second inning over the fence in right field. In the third inning, Tyler Krieger lined a two-out, two-run single, then Rohlman laced another two-out, two-run single in the fifth inning to give Clemson a 5-0 lead.

Steven Duggar, who earlier extended his hitting streak to 13 games, belted a solo homer in the seventh inning and Clemson added another run in the frame.
