CHESTNUT HILL, MA (CLEMSON SID)- Matthew Crownover and Matt Campbell combined to pitch a four-hit shutout in Clemsonâ??s 1-0 victory over Boston College in front of 854 fans at a chilly and windy Commander Shea Field on Sunday afternoon. The Tigers, who swept the series 3-0 and won their fifth game in a row, improved to 21-11 overall and 9-6 in the ACC.
The Tigers had scoring opportunities in the third and fifth innings before finally plating a lone run in the sixth inning. That was all the offense Clemson would need, as Crownover and Campbell combined to allow only five batters to reach first base, three runners to reach second base, and none to reach third base.
Crownover (4-0) pitched a career-long 6.1 innings to earn the win. He gave up four hits, no runs, and one walk with four strikeouts. Campbell retired all eight batters he faced with three strikeouts to record his sixth save of the season.
Clemson will travel to Cullowhee, NC to take on Western Carolina on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.
