Clemson University Overall Season Record: 36-24 ACC Regular-Season Record: 14-10 Last Week (ACC Tournament): 2-2 W neutral vs. #20 North Carolina, 7-6 L neutral vs. #5 Georgia Tech, 11-7 (13) W neutral vs. N.C. State, 12-1 L neutral vs. #20 North Carolina, 6-5 Notes: Clemson went 2-2 in the 2004 ACC Tournament held at Salem, VA. 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. Collegiate Baseball TUCSON, Ariz. — Miami (Fla.) is No. 1 in this week's Collegiate Baseball newspaper NCAA Division I baseball poll. The Hurricanes (44-11) swept a 3-game series at home against Long Beach St. over the past weekend and have now won seven straight. Miami has stolen 125 bases in 168 attempts but has limited its opposition to only 28 in 41 attempts. On offense, the Hurricanes are averaging 8.4 runs per game while the pitching staff has a 3.53 ERA. Texas, last week's No. 1 team in the nation, slipped to third after going 2-2 in the Big 12 Conference tournament. The Longhorns lost to Nebraska, beat Texas A&M, beat Nebraska and then were eliminated by Oklahoma St. — a team which eventually won the Big 12 tournament. Poll Notes: Several teams have been on a roll lately. South Carolina tied for fifth during the Southeastern Conference regular season race. But during the SEC tournament last week, the Gamecocks won the championship with a title game victory over Vanderbilt. South Carolina has now won five straight games entering NCAA regional action. Florida St. is another red-hot team with five wins in its last six games. The Seminoles won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament last week. Prior to the tournament, FSU finished third in the ACC regular season race. Two other teams with four consecutive wins include Notre Dame and Oral Roberts. The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll is the oldest college baseball poll. Its birth took place during the 1957 college baseball season.
