No. 19 Clemson 7, Georgia Southern 0

CLEMSON — Freshman lefthander Matthew Crownover tossed seven scoreless innings of three-hit ball to lead Clemson over Georgia Southern in front of 5,347 fans at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Clemson (36-15) scored single runs in the first three innings to build a 3-0 lead, then the Tigers put the game away with four runs in the seventh inning.

Crownover (7-1) set career highs for innings pitched and strikeouts (8) while allowing just three singles and three walks.

Patrick Andrews and Jackson Campana both pitched a scoreless inning to close out the contest. The three Tigers hurlers did not allow an Eagles (25-25) base-runner to advance past second base in the game.
