Clemson’s slide continues as the Tigers go winless in the ACC Tournament.
The Tigers fell 10-2 to Virginia Friday afternoon at Louisville’s Patterson Stadium and have no lost 14 of their last 24 games.
Chase Pinder led off the game with a walk, advanced to third on a hard-hit single to right by Reed Rohlman and came around to score on a Seth Beer ground ball to give Clemson an early 1-0 lead.
Clemson’s lead didn’t last long however, as Pat Krall faced six batters and gave up six runs on six hits. Virgnia led off the game with four consecutive singles, back-to-back doubles and a three-run home run without recording an out. It was the most runs given up by Krall in his career.
Alex Eubanks came on in relief and got a quick fly ball, but gave up back-to-back doubles and a single as Virginia sent 12 batters to the plate and scored eight runs on nine hits for an 8-1 advantage after the first inning.
Virginia tacked on a run in the fifth and in the eighth, while Clemson’s only other run came on Weston Jackson’s homer in the ninth.
The Tigers will now await their postseason fate as they wait to find out if they will host an NCAA Regional.
