Shane Kennedy’s two-out double in the 11th inning propelled No. 20 Clemson to a 3-2 win over Pittsburgh at Charles L. Cost Field on Friday night.
It was the first-ever meeting between the Tigers (23-14, 11-7 ACC) and Panthers (16-21, 8-11 ACC). Pitt is in its first season of ACC baseball.
The Panthers scored two runs, both on sacrifice flies, in the first inning to take a 2-0 lead.
The Tigers scratched back with a run in the fourth inning, and tied the score in the seventh inning on Jay Baum’s RBI groundout.
Steven Duggar led off the 11th with a single, stole second, and scored on Kennedy’s two-out double to right-center on an 0-2 pitch.
Tiger reliever Drew Moyer (3-0) earned the win for the Tigers, while Pittsburgh reliever Hobie Harris (3-5) suffered the loss.
The series continues Saturday at 3 p.m. on ESPN3.
