Duke scored 13 runs in the first four innings Friday night, as it coasted to a 14-8 victory over Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson.
The loss was a big blow to the Tigers’ postseason aspirations.
Though the Tigers (24-25, 16-19 ACC) rallied with seven runs in the middle innings, it was a little too late. Bryar Hawkins hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the Tigers life, while making he score 13-8 at the time, but they could get nothing more the rest of the way.
Hawkins finished the day 3-for-5 at the plate, while Dylan Brewer was 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in the fourth. Bryce Teodosio had triple and drove in a run as well in the second inning.
