CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Daniel Gossett struck out 10 batters in seven innings, then Matt Campbell and Scott Firth each pitched a scoreless inning in relief to close out Clemson's 1-0 shutout victory over Miami in front of 2,871 fans at Alex Rodriguez Park.

The Tigers, who won their 11th game in a row, improved to 27-11 overall and 13-6 in the ACC. The Hurricanes dropped to 25-16, 8-11.

The Tigers pushed across a run in the sixth inning on Thomas Brittle's run-scoring groundout. It gave Clemson its third 1-0 ACC victory in a seven-game span.

Gossett (6-2) allowed just three hits (all singles) and two walks. Campbell worked a scoreless eighth inning, and Firth pitched a perfect ninth inning to record his third save of the season.

The three Clemson righties combined to allow just two runners past first base and only one runner past second base.

Miami starter Christian Diaz (3-3) suffered the loss. He yielded four hits, one run, and one walk with seven strikeouts in eight innings pitched.

Clemson and Miami will play the second game of the three-game series at 1 p.m. today. The game was originally slated to start at 7 p.m., but weather concerns forced the time change.
