Mediocre Tigers play mediocre ball

Posted by cuorange on May 10, 2009

Clemson (34-17) lost to noted baseball powerhouse UNC-Wilmington on Sunday, dashing the itty bitty hope the Tigers had of hosting a regional.  Technically, I guess Clemson could still host due to the almighty dollar, but they sure don’t deserve it. 

After winning the first two last weekend against a horrid Maryland team, the Tigers came from ahead and lost to the Terps last Sunday.  This week, after blasting Wilmington on Friday (13-2) and Saturday (11-3), the Tigers lost 4-3 on Sunday.

After the Tigers rallied in the bottom of the 5th to tie the game at 3, Thomas Cruz (2-3) gave up a run in the top of the 6th that proved to be the difference.

In game one on Friday Clemson erupted for 13 runs on 12 hits, led by Chris Epps 3-3 outing.  Trey Delk (3-1) gave up 1 earned run in 5 innings to lead the Tigers on the mound.

In game two on Saturday, Clemson broke out with 8 runs in the third inning on the way to an 11-3 victory.  Kyle Parker and Jeff Schaus homered for the Tigers and Casey Harman (6-3) gave up only 1 earned run in six innings to gain the victory.
