An eight-run third inning keyed the Tigers to a 12-0 win and series sweep of Maryland in the second game of a doubleheader on Saturday night at Shipley Field. Clemson, who won its fifth ACC game in a row, improved to 12-9 overall and 5-1 in the ACC. Maryland fell to 11-14 overall and 3-9 in ACC play. The Tigers defeated Maryland 6-4 in 13 innings earlier in the day.
Robert Rohrbaugh (2-1) pitched 7.0 scoreless innings of three-hit ball to earn the win. The Littlestown, PA native, who had dozens of friends and family in attendance, struck out a career-high nine batters as well. Terrapin starter Ryan Moorer (0-4) suffered the loss.
Clemson jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning. Three straight singles by Tyler Colvin, Travis Storrer, and Kris Harvey loaded the bases with no outs. Then Andy D'Alessio and Stan Widmann both drove in runs on groundouts.
The Tigers broke the game open in the third inning with eight runs. The highlight of the inning was D'Alessio's two-run homer to centerfield, his fifth of the season. Herman Demmink hit two doubles and scored two runs in the frame as well. Through three innings, every Tiger starter had at least one hit and scored at least one run.
Taylor Harbin increased the lead to 12-0 then when he hit a two-run homer to left-center, his third of the season. Jorge Andrade, Jr. also scored after he doubled to right field.
Clemson will play host to Coastal Carolina on Tuesday at 7:15 PM.
