Tigers Lose 2 to Notre Dame

Clemson just lost on the road to a team with an RPI of #182.

Clemson needed to continue racking up wins against patsies to finish the season, and promptly blew it by losing to a terrible Notre Dame squad in South Bend. While Tim Bourret lauds us and Jack for guaranteeing a winning season for the billionth year in a row, Jack Leggett is somehow managing to turn a CWS-talented team into a 3 or 4 seed in the Regionals and a quick exit from the NCAA Tournament.

Friday - ND 2-1

ND Starter Pat Connaughton shut us down over 8 innings, allowing just 3 hits. Clemson registered just 4 for the game, yet with 10 men left on base.

Matthew Crownover once again pitched well enough to win, giving up 2 runs over 7 innings, but since Clemson can't hit with men on base, he got saddled with his 5th loss of the season. Crownover has a 2.44 ERA against Aluminum bats, and this team has given him a 6-5 record to show for it. A third of the runs he's given up this season have been unearned thanks to our pathetic defense.

Saturday - Clemson 8-0

Another day, another dominating performance by Goose, who threw a 4-hitter against the Irish in this game for his 7th win. Apparently you need a 1.57 ERA to win any games on this team.

Sunday - ND 11-3

In the rubber game of the series, Zach Erwin and Jake Long both got smoked and Clemson couldn't keep up thereafter because we couldn't hit the 3rd starter on a bad team. ND's Scott Kerrigan went 8 innings, and gave up only 3 hits.

There are few who watch as much Clemson sports as me, but at this point I'm not sure I will even bother watching this baseball team anymore as long as Jack Leggett remains in Tigertown. I don't know if this team has given up or not, but it sure seems like it.
