March 24, 2024

CLEMSON, S.C. - Jacob Hinderleider’s two-out, run-scoring single capped No. 3 Clemson’s eight-run ninth inning in its 9-8 walkoff victory over No. 7 Florida State in the second game of a doubleheader at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Saturday. The Tigers, who took a 2-0 lead in the series and won their sixth game in a row, improved to 21-2 overall and 4-1 in the ACC. The Seminoles dropped to 19-2 overall and 3-2 in ACC play.

Clemson trailed 8-1 in the bottom of the ninth inning when Hinderleider belted a three-run homer.  After a flyball double by Jacob Jarrell, Cam Cannarella’s walk and Nolan Nawrocki’s single to extend his hitting streak to 13 games, Blake Wright hit a one-out grand slam to tie the score 8-8. Jimmy Obertop was hit-by-pitch with two outs and Will Taylor walked to set up Hinderleider’s second hit of the frame, a single to right-center, to score Obertop for the winning run.

Alden Mathes lined a run-scoring single in the first inning, then Daniel Cantu led off the second inning with a home run. Cam Smith gave the Seminoles the lead with a leadoff homer in the third inning, then Jaime Ferrer belted a solo homer later in the frame. In the fourth inning, Max Williams hit a two-run homer to double the Seminole lead. Marco Dinges added a three-run homer in the seventh inning for Florida State’s fifth long ball of the game to give the Seminoles an 8-1 lead.

Jacob McGovern (1-0) earned his first career win by pitching 2.0 scoreless innings. Carson Dorsey (2-1) suffered the loss. Seminole starter Jamie Arnold allowed just three hits, one run and two walks with nine strikeouts in 7.0 innings pitched for the Seminoles.

The series concludes Sunday at 1 p.m. on ACC Network Extra.
