LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After Duke’s Jack Labosky drove in the Blue Devils’ first run with a two-out hit to right field in the top of the first inning, it did not take No. 14 Clemson too long to answer.
On Mitch Stallings’ second pitch, Tigers’ lead-off hitter Chase Pinder hit a solo home run to left field to the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the first inning. It was Pinder’s seven home run of the season and his 31 RBI.
Pinder’s home run came on a 1-0 count from Stallings.
