Tigers complete BC sweep, stay in hunt for NCAAs

CLEMSON - Clemson pitching completed a dominant weekend sweep against Boston College in a 5-0 win on Saturday.

In what was likely the final game at Doug Kingsmore Stadium this season, Clemson finished the regular season with nine consecutive home wins and victories in 12-of-13 down the stretch, where the Tigers (35-21, 13-16 ACC) worked to secure an ACC Baseball Championship berth and maintain a strong RPI for NCAA Tournament consideration (No. 30 going into Saturday’s action).

Freshman right-hander Billy Barlow continued a trend of strong starting pitching for the Tigers on the weekend.

He matched a career-best in innings pitched (6), allowing just one hit and only two baserunners total (hit batter the other) with four strikeouts before being pulled after 68 pitches.
