No. 12 Clemson struck first against Notre Dame in the bottom of the second inning at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Saturday, scoring four runs on three hits to take a 4-0 lead over the Fighting Irish.

Kyle Wilkie singled to right-center field to get the frame started, then advanced to second on a fielder’s choice before reaching third on a throwing error by Notre Dame catcher Jack Alexander.

Davis Sharpe then hit a single to right field to score Wilkie, and Bryce Teodosio followed with a double to left-center to drive in Bryar Hawkins.
