BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Joe Parsons and Manny Martir combined to allow just two of 14 base-runners to score as Virginia Tech edged Clemson at English Field.
The Tigers (36-16, 15-12 ACC) saw their eight-game winning streak end.
Clemson could not take advantage of its multiple scoring chances and seven walks, as the Tigers were 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and stranded nine runners on base.
The Hokies (29-23, 10-17) took the lead with a run in the fifth inning and held the TIgers in check until the ninth, when Clemson put the potential tying run on third base with one out. But Martir retired the next two batters to send Clemson to its eight loss in nine one-run games this year.
Jonathan Meyer (5-2) suffered the loss.
