Clemson’s pitching staff continued its dominance, and Patrick Cromwell’s solo homer broke a scoreless tie in the fifth as No. 12 Clemson (5-2) swept Elon (3-4) with a 3-0 victory Sunday afternoon under sunny and breezy conditions at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Starter Alex Eubanks rebounded from a rough start on opening weekend. Eubanks pitched seven strong innings (faced one batter in the eighth), giving up three hits, walking one and striking out seven in improving to 1-1. Jacob Hennessy pitched the final two innings to pick up his first save of the season.

Clemson pitching gave up just five runs (all earned) in 31 innings on the weekend, posting two shutouts in the process. Clemson pitchers struck out 42 and walked just three in the three games. Robert Jolly was 2-for-4 and scored a run as the Tigers managed just six hits.
