Knoxville, Tenn. - Dusty Johnson hurled seven shutout innings in leading the Tennessee Volunteers to a 4-0 victory over the Wofford Terriers at Lindsey Nelson Stadium. The win snapped a three-game losing skid.
Johnson (3-1) earned the win after striking out a career-high seven while giving up two second-inning singles and a walk. Steve Wesley picked up his second save by tossing the final two innings.
Brian Cleveland led the Vols with three-hits, including snapping the tie on an infield hit in the fifth. With two out and runners on second and third, Cleveland slapped a hard single to the left side where shortstop Tony Carbone fielded the ball cleanly only to see his throw sail high over the first baseman's head allowing the second run to score.
Tennessee added a couple of insurance runs in the eighth on Walter Sevilla's two-run shot over the left field fence, his first of the season.
Culley Kline (0-6) took the loss, scattering nine hits in the 7 1/3 innings. He was touched for three earned runs while striking out three and walking two. First baseman Steve Casey came on to close out the game.
