Clemson completes sweep of Boston College
CLEMSON, S.C. – Travis Marr pitched 3.1 scoreless innings in relief to lead No. 8 Clemson to a 8-3 victory over Boston College at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles scored single runs in the second, third and fourth innings to take a 3-2 lead. In the fifth inning, the Tigers retook the lead with three runs, capped by Seth Beer’s solo homer. It was his 10th of the year and fourth game in a row with a long ball.
