Clemson went 1-3 last week, including a 10-5 win over
Gardner-Webb on Wednesday and three losses at Virginia over the
weekend by scores of 2-1, 10-2, and 7-4. In all three games at
Virginia, the score was tied late in the game, however Virginia
rallied for a victory each time. Clemson was the only ACC team not
to be swept in a series last season. And since Boston College was
swept at N.C. State last weekend, Clemson had the longest such streak
of not being swept. However, the fact that Virginia outhit Clemson
.370 to .175 and Virginia played outstanding defense, which included
many stellar plays in the field, the Tigers were swept in a
three-game series for the first time since 2004. Another telling
stat was that in the first five innings combined, Clemson outscored
Virginia 6-3. But in the last four innings combined, the Cavaliers
outscored the Tigers 16-1. Tyler Colvin was a bright spot in the
series, as he was 5-for-12 (.417) with a double, homer, and three
RBIs against the Cavaliers. Herman Demmink's streak of reaching base
via a hit or walk ended at 32 games during the series along with his
10-game hitting streak.

Clemson holds an overall record of 11-6 and ACC record of
0-3. Clemson's season batting average fell to .278 with a .361
on-base percentage. Taylor Harbin leads the club with a .340
average, while Colvin leads the team in both homers (5) and RBIs
(14). Clemson's ERA stands at 2.65 with a .231 opponents' batting
average. Josh Cribb leads the team with a 1.11 ERA, 4-0 record, and
.167 opponents' batting average in 24.1 innings pitched. Clemson's
opponents have continuously played good defense, as they have
combined for a stellar .972 fielding percentage (only 17 errors in 17

The Tigers will play their first of five straight, five-game
weeks starting Tuesday. Clemson will host Elon for a two-game,
midweek series before hosting N.C. State over the weekend.
