CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. –The Tigers put six more batters on base, but the No. 9 Virginia got the most out of their base runners in their 6-3 win over Clemson in Game 2 of a doubleheader at Disharoon Park on Sunday evening. The Cavaliers, who won the series 2-1, improved to 37-13 overall and 16-11 in the ACC. The Tigers fell to 32-20 overall and 10-16 in ACC play.
Camden Troyer’s two-out single in the second inning scored the first run of the game, then the Cavaliers tied the game in the third inning on a wild pitch. Virginia took the lead in the fourth inning thanks in large part to a replay that canceled a flight taken due to an obstruction call. Ethan Anderson hit a two-run homer later in the inning.
The Cavaliers added three runs in the fifth inning, capped by Jake Gelof’s two-run homer. Blake Wright extended his hitting streak to 12 games with an eighth-inning single for the Tigers, who had 14 batters on base to eight for Virginia. Bryar Hawkins started the ninth inning with his seventh homer of the season, then Troyer tripled and scored on wild pitch.
Paul Kosanovich (4-0) took the victory in relief allowing two hits, no runs and no walks with four strikeouts in 3.1 innings pitched. Tiger starter Billy Barlow (1-3) suffered the loss.
The Tigers remain on the road to play Coastal Carolina Tuesday at 6 p.m. on ESPN+.
