CLEMSON - Stellar pitching, a couple of Jacksons and the long ball served Clemson well Tuesday night.

Weston Jackson cranked out two homers and drove in five runs and Tyler Jackson helped lead the pitch to its third consecutive shutout as No. 5 Clemson defeated Furman 8-0 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

Clemson has won seven in a row and 15 of 16 in improving to 21-4 on the season. Clemson’s pitching staff hasn’t allowed a run in 28 consecutive innings. The Tigers gave up a single run in the bottom of the eighth of game one at Boston College last weekend, pitched a scoreless ninth and have now pitched three consecutive shutouts. The last time Clemson posted three consecutive shutouts came during the 1992 season.
