Clemson beats Miami 3-2 at ACC tournament

Posted: Updated:

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Steve Wilkerson's RBI single with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted Clemson past Miami 3-2 on Thursday night at the Atlantic Coast Conference baseball tournament.

Jon McGibbon homered to help the fifth-seeded Tigers (36-22) improve to 2-0 in their three-team round-robin group. They will advance to the title game Sunday if they beat ninth-seeded Georgia Tech on Friday.

Tyler Slaton led off the ninth with a walk, and moved to second on Steven Duggar's single two batters later. Wilkerson followed with a single to right field off Bryan Garcia (5-4) that brought home Slaton with the winning run.

Dale Carey went 4 for 5 for the top-seeded Hurricanes (40-17), who fell to 1-1 at the tournament and play fourth-seeded Duke on Saturday.

Drew Moyer (5-1) got the win in relief of starter Daniel Gossett, who struck out eight in 8 1-3 innings.
