Cavaliers trade swords for brooms, sweep Clemson

Derek Fisher went 2-for-2 with a double, triple, and three runs to lead Virginia to a 5-3 victory over Clemson in front of 3,129 fans at UVa Baseball Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Cavaliers, who swept the series 3-0, improved to 15-8-1 overall and 5-4 in the ACC. The Tigers fell to 11-11 overall and 3-6 in ACC play.

The Cavaliers jumped out to a 3-0 lead with single runs in the first, second, and fourth innings. Clemson chipped away with single runs in the fifth and sixth innings, highlighted by Phil Pohl’s solo homer in the sixth. But Virginia never relinquished its lead and held on for a two-run win.

Artie Lewicki (1-1), the first of four Cavalier hurlers, earned the win. He allowed six hits, two runs, and two walks with four strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched. Justin Thompson pitched a scoreless ninth inning to record his fourth save of the year.

Tiger starter Kevin Pohle (3-1) suffered the loss. He gave up four hits, three runs, and four walks with one strikeout in 4.0 innings pitched.

The Cavaliers wasted little time taking the game’s first lead in the first inning. Chris Taylor led off with a single to right field and advanced to third on the play when right-fielder Brad Felder misplayed the ball. Colin Harrington followed with a double down the right-field line to score Taylor.

Fisher led off the second inning with a triple to right-center and Nate Irving walked. Fisher scored on Mitchell Shifflett’s fielder’s choice as Irving was retired at second base.

In the fourth inning, Fisher led off with a hit-by-pitch and advanced to second on Irving’s sacrifice bunt. After Fisher moved to third on Shifflett’s flyout, Fisher scored on Keith Werman’s two-out, infield single to give Virginia a 3-0 lead.

The Tigers finally dented the scoreboard in the fifth inning. Spencer Kieboom hit a one-out single through the left side, but was erased on Dominic Attanasio’s fielder’s choice. Tyler Slaton kept the inning alive with a two-out single through the right side, then Steve Wilkerson lined a single to center to score Attanasio.
