Tiger Baseball Sweeps the Week

New, 12 comments

Poor competition and weak upcoming schedule guarantees a strong finish to the regular season.

After being swept by #11 Miami at home, Clemson got a break in the schedule due to exams and the ACC gave us some patsies to finish up against over the next two weeks. Clemson travels to Notre Dame and then hosts BC to finish the season, and should win both series. Clemson should finish with 10 wins out of their last 12 before heading to the ACC Tournament. We will still fail to host a Regional series in the NCAAs after starting the season expecting to host a Super Regional and head to Omaha.

You'll notice the sparse crowds in each of the highlight videos below.

FridayClemson 9-0 over James Madison

Zack Erwin pitched a 6-hit shutout and threw only 102 pitches, striking out 4 and walking none.

SaturdayClemson 9-4

Closer Matt Campbell (3-0) earned the win, while Matt Crownover allowed just four hits, two runs and one walk with a career-high-tying nine strikeouts in 7.2 innings pitched. He also retired 15 batters in a row from the second inning to the seventh inning.

SundayClemson 6-2 over UNLV at Fluor Field

Goose Gossett (6-0) earned the win by allowing just two runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts in 8.0 innings pitched.

MondayClemson 5-2 over UNLV at Tiger Field

Jake Long (3-3) tossed 7.0 innings, the most in his brief career as a Tiger, to earn the win. He allowed six hits, two runs and three walks with two strikeouts.

WednesdayClemson 1-0 over High Point

Tiger starter Clate Schmidt (5-6) earned the win by allowing just four hits, no runs and three walks with four strikeouts in 6.0 innings pitched. Drew Moyer, Clay Bates and Matt Campbell all pitched a scoreless inning to close out the game, as Campbell recorded his seventh save of the season.

Nevermind that Clemson could only score one run against High Point NC...
