CLEMSON—The No.13 Clemson Tigers swept the season series with the Furman Paladins by a final score of 2-0 Wednesday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

The Tigers broke the scoreless game in the bottom of the fifth inning. After back-to-back walks to Sam Hall and Logan Davidson, Kyle Wilkie singled to left center and plated Hall from third base.
