Dan Pepicelli named pitching coach

Posted by cuorange on October 9, 2009

This is a few days old and it’s football season (isn’t it?) but I thought this may be worth a sentence or two.  Kyle Bunn took a patchwork staff without a superstar and turned them into a staff with the number 5 ERA in the country last year.  From all accounts Pepicelli is a good coach and a great guy, but he has his work cut out for him in replacing Bunn.

Tiger baseball loses Mounce

Posted by cuorange on September 29, 2009

Man, the Tigers are taking hit after hit. Mounce didn’t do a whole lot last year, but you have to figure he was in the plans for 2010 considering the losses the Tigers have already had this offseason.

Pitching coach Kyle Bunn headed to Bama

Posted by cuorange on September 12, 2009

This is a few days old, but it’s a huge loss.  In my opinion, Bunn had a ton to do with the Tigers having a top 5 ERA last year and will be sorely missed.

Add this to the loss of Dwyer, Stoneburner, and signee Madison Younginer and the Tigers have taken serious hits to their staff.

Tigers lose Dwyer and Younginer to pros

Posted by cuorange on August 15, 2009

Chris Dwyer

Chris Dwyer

It happens to most good college teams this time of year or earlier.  One or more of their top players sign with a big league club.  But, it doesn’t typically happen to a pitcher who just finished his freshman year.  Such is the case for Chris Dwyer and the Clemson Tigers. 

Dwyer had an up and down year for the Tigers, but there was never any question about his talent and that was proven true this week as he broke the record for a signing bonus for a 4th round pick.

Clemson signee Madison Younginer signed with the Boston Red Sox for $1 million after being selected in the 7th round and obviously won’t be playing for the Tigers.

Though I was looking forward to both of these guys playing for Clemson next year, when you sign good players these things are going to happen.  They happen all the time at the top schools across the country.  It’s painful in some respects, but a good sign in others.

Tigers go down with a whimper

Posted by cuorange on June 8, 2009

An 8-2 loss at Arizona State ended Clemson’s (44-22) season on Sunday.  For the second straight game the Tigers took a lead only to see the Sun Devils rally in the next half inning and put the game away with timely hitting and smart play.

Clemson managed only four hits and struck out 10 times in Sunday’s game.  Chris Dwyer (5-6) took the loss for Clemson.  Jeff Schaus hit a home run in the 4th inning that gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead, but Arizona State answered with 5 runs in the top of the 5th and the game was never in doubt after that burst.

Tigers fall in game 1

Posted by cuorange on June 7, 2009

A beautiful catch by centerfielder Jason Kipnis saved at least two runs and Arizona State added a couple more on the way to a 7-4 victory.

Backs against the wall, the Tigers (44-21) need to win tonight and tomorrow to advance to Omaha.

Tigers climb off deck to advance

Posted by cuorange on June 1, 2009

On the monkey bars of college baseball Clemson (44-20) had slipped off the top rung and busted their chin on the way down, falling behind 5-1 to Oklahoma State in the winner take all game at the Clemson Regional.

But for once the Tigers picked themselves up, rubbed their chin and got on with climbing back up. With two outs and no one on in the bottom of the 7th Matt Sanders reach on an error by Cowboy 3rd baseman Tyrone Hambly. Chris Epps followed by homering to left-center pulling the Tigers to within 5-3 and the Tigers scored once more before the inning was over to close the 7th at 5-4.

Kyle Parker’s two out two run single in the bottom of the 8th put the Tigers ahead for the first time and Matt Vaughn (4-1) made it hold up as the Tigers won 6-5.

It wasn’t a thing of beauty as the Tigers only tallied 6 hits, made 3 errors and starter Ryan Hinson only lasted 1+ innings.  Yet, some how, some way this team managed to pull it out and move on.
