Tigers beat Tar Heels in Baseball Series Finale

The Clemson Tigers needed 11-innings to beat the #1 North Carolina Tar Heels, 5-4, in the finale of their three-game series Monday night.  The Tar Heels jumped out to a 3-1 lead before Clemson clawed back with three runs in the sixth inning to take the lead, 4-3.  North Carolina tied the score in the seventh inning on a run-scoring groundout, then both teams were unable to score a go-ahead run in the eighth, ninth, and 10th innings.  Clemson loaded the bases with no outs in the 11th inning and plated the go-ahead run with one out. The Tigers, who won their 16th all-time game over a top-ranked team, improved to 17-11 overall and 6-6 in the ACC.  However, the Tar Heels took the series, 2-1.  Clemson will host Gardner-Webb at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Wednesday at 6:30pm.
