CLEMSON, S.C. - Matt Ruppenthal pitched 6.0 scoreless innings and Will Toffey hit two homers with five RBIs in Vanderbilt’s 8-0 win over No. 15 Clemson to capture the Clemson Regional title at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Monday night. The Commodores improved to 36-23-1 and advanced to the Corvallis Super Regional to face Oregon State next weekend. The Tigers’ season came to end with a 42-21 record.

Ruppenthal (3-3) earned the win by allowing just three hits, no runs and one walk with five strikeouts. Alex Eubanks (7-6) suffered the loss, as he gave up four hits, two runs and no walks with two strikeouts in 4.0 innings pitched.

Toffey, the Clemson Regional MVP, laced a two-run homer to center field in the third inning, then he belted a three-run homer in Vanderbilt’s four-run fifth inning. The Commodores added a run in the sixth inning on JJ Bleday’s single, his third of the game, and a run in the ninth inning on Jeren Kendall’s double.
