CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. (Clemson SID) – Daniel Gossett pitched 7.0 strong innings to lead No. 14 Clemson to a 7-1 win over No. 2 Virginia at UVa Baseball Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers (21-13, 10-6 ACC) evened the series 1-1 against the Cavaliers (29-6, 13-4 ACC), who saw their 13-game home ACC winning streak dating to 2013 come to an end. Virginia’s 16-game overall home winning streak also came to an end, as it fell to 19-2 at UVa Baseball Stadium in 2014.

Gossett (4-0) gave up just five hits, one run and three walks with four strikeouts to earn the win. Cavalier starter Josh Sborz (3-2) suffered the loss despite taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning. It marked just the third time in its 35 games in 2014 that Virginia allowed more than four runs in a game.

The Tigers broke a scoreless tie with three runs in the sixth inning, highlighted by run-scoring singles by Tyler Krieger and Garrett Boulware. Clemson added four runs in the seventh inning, capped by Boulware’s two-run homer to left field, his third long ball of the year.

The series concludes Sunday at 1 p.m.
