BC Rallies For Win in First of Two

CLEMSON - Boston College scored five runs over the last two innings, including three in the top of the ninth, to get the 8-6 victory over No. 18 Clemson in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday afternoon at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Tigers relief pitcher Stephen Clyne struggled once again out of the bullpen as he allowed two inherited runners to score and one of his own in that final inning.

Clyne also allowed two inherited runners to score Saturday night in the eighth inning that tied the score, before Andy D'Alessio's home run in the bottom half of the inning won the game for Clemson.

Sunday, with the score tied at 3-3, Boston College scored two runs in the top of the eighth to grab a 5-3 lead.

However, the Tigers managed to score three runs in the bottom of the eighth, two of which came from a home run by Taylor Harbin, to take a 6-5 lead.

But they couldn't hold the lead with Alan Farina and Clyne on the mound. Together, they allowed three runs, four hits and had a hit batter.

An error by left fielder Addison Johnson also committed an error that allowed the go-ahead run to score.
