DURHAM, NC – In the big inning, Clemson creates runs and wins.
For the second consecutive day in the ACC Baseball Championship in Durham, second-seeded Clemson used a big inning in dispatching an opponent, riding a six-run sixth to defeat Miami 7-1 and advance to Saturday's semifinals.
Clemson scored five of its six sixth-inning runs with two outs. Drew Wharton led off the inning with a home run, breaking a game that had been deadlocked at 1-1 since the fourth. Wharton’s shot was loud and long, landing on the roof of a restaurant beyond the left field wall. A slew of singles and a three-run bomb by Chris Williams gave Clemson all the runs it needed.
Clemson improves to 45-13 while Miami falls to 28-26. The Tigers put themselves in prime position to earn a national seed when the NCAA Tournament pairings are announced next Monday.
