Walk-off!! Davidson's two-run, 9th inning homer leads Clemson to sweep of UNC

Davidson launched a two-strike, two-out home run over the wall in right to lift Clemson to a 5-4 victory over No. 3 UNC Sunday afternoon at Tiger Field, giving the Tigers the sweep of one of the nation’s top teams.

Clemson improves to 12-3 overall and starts league play with a 3-0 record. North Carolina falls to 12-4 overall and 0-3 in ACC play. The sweep is the first for Clemson over UNC since 1997.

Tar Heel reliever Austin Love entered the day with an ERA of 0.00, but Sam Hall recorded a two-out double in the bottom of the ninth to give the Tigers’ life.
