Clemson University hammered University of Maine pitching for 22 hits on Sunday afternoon as the Tigers won the rubber game of the series with a 19-2 baseball victory at Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson, South Carolina.

Clemson (2-1) had bounced back from Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Black Bears with a 9-4 win on Saturday.

In Sunday’s game, the Tigers scored four runs in the fourth inning and tacked on seven in the fifth to put the game out of reach.

Weston Wilson (double) and Chris Williams collected three hits and an RBI each for the winners, while Chase Pinder and Seth Beer each drove in four runs with a home run and a single. Eli White also doubled and singled to support starter and winner Jake Higginbotham, who scattered six hits and two runs through five innings.

Junior Jeff Gelinas of Saco suffered the loss, allowing 11 hits and nine earned runs in four innings. Four relievers were touched up for 11 hits and 10 more runs.

Junior transfer Tyler Schwanz paced UMaine (1-2) with a solo home run and an RBI double. Kevin Stypulkowski and Brenden Geary each posted a double.

Neither team committed an error.

In Saturday’s game, nine walks and two hit batsmen opened the door for Clemson to score nine runs in the second and third innings en route to a 9-4 win.

Clemson scored four times in the second inning as Black Bears redshirt freshman starter Chris Murphy, coming off 2014 Tommy John surgery, walked four of the nine batters he faced. The hosts then scored five runs in the third off freshman Nick Silva, who issued four bases on balls in a 1⅔-inning stint.

Alex Cabrera (RBI), Danny Casals and Brett Chappell posted two hits apiece among 10 for UMaine. Stypulkowski and Jeremy Pena each stroked a run-scoring double.

Sophomore Jonah Normandeau of Cumberland was outstanding in relief for UMaine. He allowed only one hit and a hit batsman while striking out three, pitching 5⅓ innings of shutout ball.

Right-hander Clate Schmidt spread out eight hits and four runs with five strikeouts and one walk to earn the win for Clemson. Pat Krall pitched 3⅔ innings of one-hit, shutout relief with six strikeouts.

The Tigers posted seven hits, including a two-run double by Adam Renwick and a two-run single by Seth Beer.
