Zack Erwin pitched 8.0 strong innings to lead Clemson to a 6-2 win over Wake Forest at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Tigers improved to 13-13 overall and 5-7 in the ACC. The Demon Deacons, who won the series 2-1, fell to 19-11 overall and 6-6 in ACC play.
Erwin (2-3) earned the victory by allowing seven hits, two runs (one earned) and one walk with seven strikeouts in 8.0 innings pitched. Wake Forest starter Connor Johnstone (1-2) suffered the loss.
Andrew Cox’s two-out single in the second inning scored Chase Pinder for the game’s first run, then the Tigers added two runs in the fourth inning on Weston Wilson’s run-scoring single and Cox’s sacrifice fly. Eli White blasted his first career homer, a three-run shot to left-center, in the sixth inning as well. All six Tiger RBIs came from the bottom three batters in the lineup.
The Tigers return to action Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. when they host Furman at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. It is Tiger Cub Tuesday, as any IPTAY Tiger Cub Club member who presents their Tiger Cub ID at Doug Kingsmore Stadium receives free admission when accompanied by a paying adult.
