DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Nate Frieman's school-record 43rd home run started a six-run sixth inning that carried Duke past Clemson 10-4 on Friday in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Alex Hassan had a two-run single and Jake Lemmerman added a run-scoring triple during the burst for the seventh-seeded Blue Devils (35-23), who eliminated the Tigers (39-19) from contention for Sunday's championship game.

Lemmerman also homered and drove in three runs, Hassan added three RBIs and Frieman's drive over the Blue Monster in left-center field was his 20th of the season and set the Duke career record.

He helped the Blue Devils win an ACC tournament game for the first time since 2004.
