LEXINGTON, Ky. - Greg Dombrowski struck out four batters and didn't allow a walk over 5 2-3 innings Sunday to help Kentucky beat Tennessee 3-1 in Southeastern Conference baseball action.

The Kentucky starter got some help from three relievers who combined to allow only one hit in the final 3 1-3 innings of the game.

Scott Green earned his first save of the season and the fourth of his career. He pitched a 1-2-3 inning in the final frame to secure the win for the Wildcats.

Sean Coughlin went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored for Kentucky (25-6-1, 5-6-1). J.P. Arencibia was 3-for-4 to lead the Volunteers (20-13, 6-6).

BLACKSBURG - Clemson catcher Doug Hogan smashed a three-run homer in the top of the 10th inning, and the Tigers completed a weekend sweep of the Atlantic Coast Conference series.

Clemson (23-9, 8-4) struck quickly in the 10th. Marquez Smith reached base on an infield single and moved to third on Ben Paulsen's hit-and-run single to right. Hogan then hit Tech reliever Scott Stoehr's next pitch over the left-field fence for his fifth homer of the season.

The loss was the first for the Hokies (16-17, 4-11) in extra innings; they took three extra-inning wins on the road earlier in the season.

Adam Redd pitched a career- high 8 1-3 innings, striking out nine, before giving way to Stoehr in the ninth with one out and a man on second. Stoehr (1-2) allowed three runs and three hits.

Clemson reliever Alan Farina (2-0) fanned seven batters and earned the win. Stephen Clyne, who pitched the 10th, picked up his second save of the season.

ATHENS, Ga. - The No. 1 Lady Vols rolled on, winning their 18th straight game by completing a series sweep of SEC rival Georgia (31-19, 5-9).

Left fielder India Chiles continued her hot hitting streak with a 3-for-4, two-RBI effort. She went 10-for-12 in the series to lift her batting average to .467 overall and .561 in conference games.

Lindsay Schutzler and Lillian Hammond had two hits each for Tennessee (43-2, 14-2).

Monica Abbott (32-1) did her part by allowing just one run on two hits with nine strikeouts to earn the win in the circle. Her only miscue was a solo home run to Georgia's Kellie Middleton with two outs in the sixth inning.
