Clemson's
CWS Streak Continues


style="">           
With Clemson's appearance in
the 2010 College World Series, the Tigers' streak of going no more than
three
years in a row without a CWS appearance continued.  That means
that every
Tiger since the freshman class of 1988 who has been in the program and
been on
the postseason roster for four straight years has made at least one
trip to
Omaha.  The last time the Tigers went four straight years without
a trip
to Omaha was 1987-90.

Only three other schools have
current streaks as long as the Tigers.  Miami (FL) has not gone
four years
in a row without making it to Omaha since 1970-73, while Cal State
Fullerton
(1971-74) and Louisiana State (1982-85) also have streaks longer than
the
Tigers' streak.

Top #1 Sun Devils 6-3 Monday

In the Tigers' first game of
the College World Series on June 21, Casey Harman and Alex Frederick
combined
to limit #1 Arizona State to three runs and eight hits in Clemson's 6-3
win.  Harman pitched 6.0 strong innings to earn the win, while
Frederick
pitched 3.0 innings to record the save, as he yielded just one hit, no
runs,
and one walk with two strikeouts.  Clemson outhit the Sun Devils
14-8 and
every Tiger starter had at least one hit.  The Tigers won their
fourth College
World Series opener in a row, while it was their 11th all-time win over
a
top-ranked team and their first since 2006.
