Clemson 1, High Point 0
CLEMSON - Four right-handers combined to toss a four-hit shutout in Clemson's win over High Point on Wednesday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
It was the first meeting between the two schools since 2008, as the Tigers (30-19) improved to 10-0 all-time against the Panthers (25-19). Clemson, who won its fifth game in a row, also reached the 30-win mark for the 40th consecutive season.
Tiger starter Clate Schmidt (5-6) earned the win by allowing just four hits, no runs and three walks with four strikeouts in six innings pitched. Drew Moyer, Clay Bates and Matt Campbell all pitched a scoreless inning to close out the game, as Campbell recorded his seventh save of the season. Panther starter Jon Carlson (1-1) suffered the loss despite pitching 6.1 strong innings.
Clemson dented the scoreboard in the third inning when Steven Duggar led off with a single and scored on Garrett Boulware's sacrifice fly.
The Tigers travel to South Bend, Ind., to take on Notre Dame in a three-game series beginning Friday at 7:30 p.m.
