Weekend Rotation Set

Josh Cribb and Robert Rohrbaugh will get the first two starts of the year this weekend in Myrtle Beach.

Junior righthander Josh Cribb will get the opening day start for the Clemson Tigers on Friday against West Virginia.

Cribb has performed well, both as a starter and reliever during his first couple of years with the Tigers. He was 5-1 with a 3.71 ERA and .222 opponents' batting average a year ago, and was especially effective in the postseason.

Junior lefthander Robert Rohrbaugh will start game No. 2 this weekend against Coastal Carolina.

Rohrbaugh is a control pitcher who has walked just 34 batters in 106.1 career innings pitched. His consistency on the mound has been evident, as he has allowed more than four runs in just one of his 46 career appearances.

Rohrbaugh had a 3.99 ERA last year, but only had a 4-5 record due to a lack of run support.

Kris Harvey will start Sunday's game against East Carolina.

Harvey was an All-ACC performer last year, excelling in both the field on the mound. He recorded a 6-0 record in 14 starts last year and has a 10-1 career record.

The Tigers open up the 2005 campaign this weekend at the Baseball at the Beach tournament in Myrtle Beach, SC. Clemson's first game is against West Virginia on Friday. The Tigers will then square off against Coastal Carolina on Saturday, followed by East Carolina on Sunday.
