The Tigers tied the score 1-1 on Chris Okey’s two-out, infield single in the third inning, then Pittsburgh regained the lead with two runs after a costly Clemson error in the fifth inning. Chris Williams had the hit of the day in the 6th inning. With 2 outs and the bases loaded, he singled to score two runs. This came after the Tigers loaded the bases with no outs and saw an infield fly by Wilson and a strike out looking by Greene. Jordan Greene would redeem himself, however. His single with one out in the eighth inning off the glove of shortstop Charles LeBlanc scored Rohlman. Seth Beer, who was the DH on Sunday, extended his hitting streak to 24 games, while Eli White’s 10-game hitting streak came to an end.

Pat Krall pitched the final 4.1 innings to earn the win, while Pittsburgh reliever Josh Falk (2-4) suffered the loss. Krall earned the win and improved to 3-0 on the season with an anemic 0.56 ERA. He only allowed one base runner on Sunday, and that came with 2 outs in the 9th.
The Tigers hit the road to play Georgia in Athens on Tuesday at 7 p.m., on SEC Network Plus.
