Notes:



Clemson went 1-2 in the Baseball at The Beach tournament at Myrtle Beach, SC from February 18-20 to open the season. The Tigers won their opening game 7-2 over West Virginia, but lost the last two games against host Coastal Carolina and East Carolina. The Tigers went their last 17 innings without scoring a run. Clemson hit .204 combined in the three games, including just 4-for-28 (.143) with runners in scoring position in the tourney and 1-for-15 in the two losses. Freshman Taylor Harbin had an impressive debut. He was 5-for-12 (.417) with three doubles, a walk, and three steals in three attempts. He also did not strike out and was errorless in 12 chances at second base. The pitching staff had a 4.97 ERA and .273 opponents' batting average, but had 25 strikeouts against only eight walks, better than a 3-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio. Junior transfer Adrian Casanova also threw out two of four basestealers in the tourney.
