Garrett Boulware's single with two outs in the ninth inning scored Thomas Brittle to give the Clemson baseball team a 7-6 home win Saturday over Virginia.

The one-run victory gave Jack Leggett his 1,235th career win as a head coach. Leggett moved into a tie with Larry Cochell for 12th place in NCAA history in all-time wins by a head coach at an NCAA Division I school.

Freshman left-hander Zack Erwin (1-0) earned his first career win in relief of freshman starter Clate Schmidt.

Clemson (11-6 overall, 3-2 ACC) and Virginia will wrap up the series at 1 p.m. Sunday.
