all hit solo homers in Clemson's 8-4 win over Boston College at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Thursday night. Clemson (33-21, 14-13 ACC), who earlier in the evening clinched an ACC Tournament berth by virtue of Notre Dame's victory over Pittsburgh, took a 1-0 lead in the series over the Eagles (21-32, 9-19 ACC).

After the Eagles scored an unearned run in the top of the first inning, Clemson responded with two runs in the bottom of the first thanks in part to Krieger's solo homer, his second of the season and career. After Baum's first career home run in the third inning, the Tigers scored three runs on only one hit in the third inning. Duggar added a solo homer in the seventh inning, his first of the year and third of his career. Clemson hit a season-high three long balls.
