The Tar Heels improved to 18-13 overall and 7-8 in the ACC. The Tigers, who won the series 2-1, fell to 16-15 overall and 7-8 in ACC play.
The Tigers jumped out to a 4-0 lead thanks to Chris Okey’s three-run homer in the
first inning and Tyler Slaton’s run-scoring double in the second inning. North
Carolina rallied with three runs in the third inning, one run in the fourth inning
and another run in the fifth inning to take a 5-4 lead. Tyler Ramirez, who was
3-for-5 with five RBIs, added a three-run homer in the top of the seventh inning.
Eli White laced a two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning and Clemson
added a run in the eighth inning, but the Tar Heels worked out of a no-out,
bases-loaded jam to preserve their one-run lead.
Benton Moss (5-0) earned the win, as he allowed eight hits, six runs and two walks
with three strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched. Trent Thornton pitched the final 2.0
innings to record his fifth save of the season. Tiger starter Brody Koerner (3-4)
suffered the loss, as he gave up seven hits, five runs and no walks with six
strikeouts in 5.0 innings pitched.
The Tigers return to the diamond Tuesday when they host Georgia at 6:30 p.m. on
ESPN3. Tuesday is Military Appreciation Day, as we honor and recognize our troops.
Tigers win series, but lose Sunday
