All four games were against teams that should make the NCAA Tournament. Both losses were heartbreaking defeats in the final inning. The Tigers hit .327 with 17 doubles in the four games and did an excellent job getting ahead early. In the four games, Clemson scored at least two runs in every first inning and totaled 15 of its 31 runs of the tourney in the first inning. The Tigers also set an ACC Tourney record with eight doubles in one game against N.C. State. It was the 28th time in 31 ACC Tournaments that Clemson won at least two games.
Travis Storrer was 10-for-20 with seven runs scored and three doubles, Brad McCann was 9-for 18 with six runs scored, three doubles, two homers, and six RBIs, and Tony Sipp was 8-for-17 with six runs scored, four doubles, a triple, and five walks. Sipp also tied the Tiger ACC Tourney record with the four doubles and struck out six in 3.2 innings pitched in relief. Kris Harvey (.353), Tyler Colvin (.333), Russell Triplett (.316), and Lou Santangelo (.316) also had productive tourneys. Harvey also extended his hitting streak to 16 games, while D'Alessio's streak ended at 13 and Triplett's ended at 11.
Tyler Lumsden struck out 10 in 7.2 innings pitched to earn the win over N.C. State. Pitching within miles of his hometown of Roanoke, he allowed just one run on five hits. He lowered his season ERA to 3.72. McCann is now hitting .384 with 20 doubles, 15 homers, and 62 RBIs, as the team is hitting .298 overall. The Tigers have hit 136 doubles and stolen 76 bases in 60 games.
Clemson will await the NCAA Selection Committee's picks on Monday at 12:00 PM EDT on ESPN-2.
