CLEMSON, SC — Freshman Steven Duggar hit a two-out, two-run walk-off homer in the 11th inning to lift No. 22 Clemson to a 6-4 win and a weekend sweep of Wake Forest on Sunday afternoon.
The Tigers (26-11, 12-6 ACC) have won 10 in a row.
Garrett Boulware led off the 11th with a seven-pitch walk before the next two Tigers were retired. Duggar then deposited a 2-1 breaking ball over the fence in right, his second homer of the season and first of his career at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
It was the first walkoff home run by a Tiger this season.
Duggar led Clemsons 12-hit attack by going 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBIs.
The Demon Deacons (19-20, 4-14) battled back from a 2-0 deficit and 4-2 deficit, tying the game in the seventh inning on Pat Blairs two-run single with two outs.
Scott Firth (4-4) pitched three scoreless innings of relief for the Tigers, allowing one hit and striking out four.
Jack Fischer tossed 51/3 scoreless innings of relief for Wake, but Connor Kaden (0-3) yielded two runs on one hit in the final inning.
Matt Conway went 3-for-5 to lead the Demon Deacons.
Clemson will host Furman at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
