from the Tigers web site:
DURHAM, N.C. – The No. 15 Clemson Tigers hit four homers, including the first two of the year by Reed Rohlman, in their 5-3 win over No. 3 Louisville in the ACC Tournament at Durham Bulls Athletic Park on Friday. The Tigers, who improved to 2-0 in the tourney, upped their record to 40-18 and won their seventh game in a row, while the Cardinals, who fell to 1-1 in the tournament and saw their 10-game winning streak end, dropped to 47-11.

Weston Wilson belted a long solo homer, his sixth of the year, in the second inning to tie the score 1-1, then the Cardinals scored single runs in the third and fourth innings to build a 3-1 lead. Rohlman laced his first homer of the year in the fifth inning, then Seth Beer was hit-by-pitch with the bases loaded to tie the score again. In the sixth inning, Rohlman crushed another solo homer to give the Tigers a 4-3 lead. He became the seventh Tiger and first since 2000 (Jeff Baker) to hit two homers in an ACC Tournament game. Beer added a solo homer in the seventh inning, his 16th of the season to set a Tiger freshman record.
