The Tigers, who took a 1-0 lead in the series, improved to 24-21 overall and 13-11 in the ACC. The Cardinals fell to 35-11 overall and 19-3 in ACC play. It was the first-ever meeting as ACC foes and the first meeting since 1972.
Run-scoring singles by Reed Rohlman, Chase Pinder and Weston Wilson in the first
inning gave Clemson a 3-0 lead, then Rohlman and Wilson, who went 3-for-4 with three
RBIs, hit run-scoring singles in the third inning. Brendan McKay lined a two-out
single in the sixth inning to score Sutton Whiting, but Clemson responded with four
runs in the seventh inning, highlighted by Steven Duggar’s run-scoring double.
Crownover (8-1) earned the win by allowing just five hits, one run and three walks
with four strikeouts in 7.0 innings pitched. Louisville starter Kyle Funkhouser
(6-3) suffered the loss, as he allowed seven hits, five runs and no walks with two
strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched.
