Tigers complete sweep of Hokies, 8-3

No. 4 Clemson scored four runs in the fourth inning to take the lead for good in the 8-3 win over Virginia Tech on Sunday. The Tigers (28-5, 13-2 ACC) swept the three-game series and won their 20th game in a row over the Hokies (17-17, 6-9) at Doug Kingsmore Stadium dating to 1984.

Virginia Tech took its second 2-0 lead in as many days when it scored twice in the third inning. But the Tigers responded with four runs in the fourth inning, keyed by two-run singles from Andrew Cox and Jordan Greene.

Robert Jolly belted a two-run single in the fifth inning, then Reed Rohlman extended his hitting streak to 10 consecutive games in the sixth inning with a run-scoring single for Clemson, which won its fifth game in a row. Every Tiger starter had at least one hit.

Tiger starting pitcher Pat Krall (6-0) earned the win. He allowed five hits, two runs (one earned) and two walks with three strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings pitched.

Hokie starter Nick Anderson (5-3) suffered the loss, as he gave up four hits, four runs and two walks with three strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings pitched.

The Tigers will host Charleston Southern on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
