pitched 6.0 scoreless innings of three-hit ball in Clemson’s 7-0 victory over No. 8 Florida State at Dick Howser Stadium on Friday night. The Tigers, who took a 2-0 lead in the series, improved to 30-25 overall and 15-13 in the ACC. The Seminoles dropped to 37-18 overall and 17-12 in ACC play.

With the win, Clemson assured itself either the No. 5 or No. 6 seed in the ACC Tournament, meaning the Tigers avoid a play-in game and will play at least three games at Durham (N.C.) Bulls Athletic Park next week. It also assured Clemson’s 21st winning ACC regular-season record in 22 seasons under Head Coach Jack Leggett.

Erwin (6-4) earned the win by allowing just three hits, no runs and no walks with three strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched. After an hour and a half rain delay in the middle of the seventh inning, Taylor VetzelTaylor Vetzel

pitched the final 3.0 innings to record his fourth save of the season. Erwin and Vetzel combined to face just three batters over the minimum thanks in large part to two double plays turned by the Tiger defense. Seminole starter Mike Compton (3-3) suffered the loss, as he gave up seven hits, five runs (three earned) and two walks with six strikeouts in 4.2 innings pitched.
