No. 2 Louisville tops No. 7 Clemson in series opener

The Cardinals are also riding a 14-game winning streak, and are 12 for 12 in series victories this season.

Louisville took its first lead later that inning thanks to a two run blast from Drew Ellis to make it 6-4. The Tigers fell to 37-13 overall and 16-9 in ACC play. Andrew Cox's solo homer, his fourth, put Clemson up 4-0 in the fourth inning.

The Cardinals will look for the three game sweep on Clemson Sunday at noon.

Tanner Houck struck out 10 batters and hurled a complete game as Missouri defeated SC 5-3 on Saturday at Taylor Stadium in Columbia, Missouri. Tiger starter Charlie Barnes (5-4) suffered the loss, as he yielded seven hits, four runs (one earned) and three walks with five strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched.

The Cardinals overcame a 4-0 deficit on Saturday by scoring all six runs on four home runs, including two from Fitch.

Colby Fitch belted a solo homer in the first inning, then the Cardinals scored two unearned runs in the third inning without a hit and added another unearned run in the fourth inning.

Missouri answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie the game at 3 on Chris Cornelius' RBI double and Glendinning's two-out RBI single. Following a two-out single to left field by Ellis, Mann drilled a 0-1 pitch down the left field line and into the seats for his eighth homer. Like he did in the sixth inning, Fitch led off the eighth by a connecting for a solo home run sending his 11th round-tripper of the season over the wall in right center.
