In Clemson’s second game against Elon, he pitched 2.0 perfect innings in relief and recorded three strikeouts in a close game to preserve the Tigers’ win and earn the save. At Maryland on Sunday, Hinson allowed just six hits, two runs and one walk with eight strikeouts as the Tigers collected a 6-2 win over the Terps. For the week, Hinson pitched 9.0 innings, allowing just six hits, two runs and one walk, while striking out 11.
