Clemson Softball won their 3-game series against the Boston College Eagles with two run-rule victories at McWhorter Stadium. Next, they will face Furman for a midweek contest before traveling north to Syracuse, New York for a series against the Orange.

Following the cancellation of their midweek contest against Georgia State due to weather, the Tigers got rolling against the Eagles on Thursday, winning 10-2 in five innings. Regan Spencer notched another win for Clemson, while Alia Logoleo, Maddie Moore, and Grace Hiller all had home runs. Julia Knowler returned to the lineup for the first time in just over a month to register a double and then scored on a hit by Moore.

Friday’s game was a struggle for the Tigers and they ultimately lost 4-0. The bats were quiet and Clemson could only manage three hits in support of Millie Thompson.

Whatever was missing offensively Friday returned on Saturday as the Tigers won their second five-inning game of the series 10-0. Brooke McCubbin got the start and the victory. Valerie Cagle tallied four RBIs, three coming on a home run that ended the game.

Clemson is now 23-10 overall and 7-4 in the ACC. Softball America has Clemson ranked at No. 20.
