The Clemson baseball team picked up a victory over Boston College in the series opener Friday night by a score of 6-2.
Seth Beer and Weston Wilson both belted two-run home runs as Clemson baseball defeated Boston College 6-2 Friday night in Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
In his first Friday start of the year, Clate Schmidt tossed seven innings, struck out a career-high 11 batters, and allowed just six hits as he picked up his fourth victory as he remained unblemished on the season.
Clemson baseball got out to an early 2-0 lead, but Boston College answered right back with two solo-homers to tie the game at two apiece.
That’s when Seth Beer took over.
Beer launched a ball over the right field wall to give the Tigers a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the third. With the homer, he extended his hitting streak to 15 games on the young season.
In the bottom of the fifth, Weston Wilson blasted a two-run home run putting Clemson baseball up 6-2.
The pitching remained solid and the Tigers were able to get out of several jams on their way to a victory.
With the win, Clemson baseball improved to 14-3 overall and 3-1 in the ACC. The Tigers and Eagles will square off for game two in Doug Kingsmore Stadium at 4 p.m. Saturday. The series will conclude with a 1 p.m. start for the game Sunday.
