Clemson defeats UNLV in baseball, 5-2

CLEMSON - Junior right-hander Jake Long pitched seven effective innings in Clemson's 5-2 victory over UNLV at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Monday night to sweep the two-game series.

Long (3-3) pitched a career high in innings to earn the win. He allowed six hits, two runs and three walks with two strikeouts. Drew Moyer pitched the ninth inning to record his second save of the season.

Rebels starter Kenny Oakley (3-5) suffered the loss despite yielding only three hits in 61/3 innings pitched.

Garrett Boulware's base-loaded walk scored the first of two runs in the first inning for the Tigers (29-19).

After UNLV (29-18) scored a run in the top of the third inning, Tyler Krieger's run-scoring double and Chris Okey's sacrifice fly gave Clemson a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning.

Boulware's double in the seventh inning plated Krieger to cap the game's scoring. Boulware finished 1 for 1 with three walks and two RBIs for the Tigers, while Steven Duggar was 2 for 3 with a walk.

The Tigers host High Point on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
