CLEMSON, S.C. – The No. 1 Florida State Seminoles scored three runs in the seventh inning to take the lead and held on for a 4-3 win over No. 13 Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in the second game of a doubleheader Saturday night.

The Seminoles (19-4, 7-2 ACC) swept the doubleheader and won the series 2-1 over the Tigers (14-9, 6-3 ACC).

The Tigers scored three two-out runs in the second inning, highlighted by Jay Baum’s two-run double, to take a 3-0 lead. But Florida State answered with a run in the sixth inning and three runs in the seventh inning, sparked by Justin Gonzalez’s solo home run.

Seminole reliever Gage Smith (3-0) earned the win, while Jameis Winston recorded his fourth save of the year. Clemson reliever Clate Schmidt (2-4) suffered the loss. Tiger starter Jake Long yielded just one run on three hits in 6.0 innings pitched.

The Seminoles’ doubleheader sweep snapped Clemson’s streak of 32 doubleheaders in a row (against one team) winning at least one game. The last time the Tigers were swept in a doubleheader was 2004 at Virginia. The Tigers travel to Athens, Ga. to take on Georgia Tuesday at 7 p.m. on CSS.
