Lefty starter Zack Erwin allowed just one run on four hits with seven strikeouts in 7.2 innings pitched to lead No. 14 Clemson to a 2-1 victory over Appalachian State at Doug Kingsmore Stadium Wednesday night. It was the first meeting between the two schools since 1997.

Erwin (1-0), who did not issue a walk, set a career high for innings pitched and tied his career high for strikeouts for Clemson (10-5). His previous career-long outing was 6.0 innings pitched. Matt Campbell pitched the final 1.1 innings to record his second save of the year. Starter Sean Mason (0-1) suffered the loss for Appalachian State (4-13).

Tyler Slaton led off the first inning with a single to extend his hitting streak to 12 and came around to score on Garrett Boulware’s single. In the fourth inning, Tyler Krieger led off with a single to up his hitting streak to 16 and scored on Steven Duggar’s single. Appalachian State’s lone run came on Ozzy Gonzalez’s homer in the fifth inning.

The Tigers begin a five-game stretch of games away from home with a three-game series at Wake Forest beginning Friday at 6 p.m.
