by -

Clemson, SC -

Three Tigers were named First or Second-Team All-ACC in 2010, announced Monday by the ACC Office. Junior outfielder Kyle Parker was the Tigers’ lone First-Team All-ACC selection, while senior second-baseman Mike Freeman and junior outfielder Jeff Schaus were named Second-Team All-ACC. The team was compiled by a vote of the 12 ACC head coaches.

It was the second time Parker was named First-Team All-ACC, as he received that same honor as a freshman in 2008. Parker became the first two-time, First-Team All-ACC player at Clemson since Kris Harvey accomplished the same feat in 2004 and 2005. Schaus was also a First-Team All-ACC selection as a sophomore in 2009.

In 2010, Parker is hitting .373 with 18 homers, 14 doubles, 56 RBIs, 69 runs, a .725 slugging percentage, 47 walks, a .508 on-base percentage, and four steals in 53 games. Schaus is batting .307 with 13 homers, 10 doubles, two triples, an ACC-high 71 RBIs, 58 runs, and six steals in 56 games. Freeman is hitting .323 with seven homers, 19 doubles, one triple, 48 RBIs, 56 runs, and 11 stolen bases along with an outstanding .970 fielding percentage.

Clemson’s Boyd, North Carolina’s Bates receive ACC Baseball Weekly honors

Player and Pitcher of the Week key series sweeps in regular-season finales

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson outfielder Wilson Boyd has been named the final ACC Baseball Player of the Week for the 2010 season, while North Carolina’s Colin Bates received the Pitcher of the Week honor.

Boyd, senior outfielder from Hickory, N.C. led Clemson to a 4-0 week, including a three-game sweep over No. 6 Florida State to give Clemson the ACC Atlantic Division co-championship and the No. 2 seed in this week’s ACC Baseball Championship at Greensboro, N.C.

The highlight of Boyd’s week was his go-ahead, run-scoring single with two outs in the eighth inning to give the Tigers a 9-8 win over the Seminoles on Thursday. In four games last week, Boyd batted .571 with eight hits, a homer, double, five RBIs, three runs, four walks, a .667 on-base percentage, and a steal. He had multiple hits in each of the first three games of the week, including two three-hit games, and walked three times in four plate appearances in the final game of the week.

In the three-game sweep over the Seminoles, Boyd was 5-for-9 (.556) with a homer, four RBIs, three runs, four walks, and a .692 on-base percentage. On the season, he is batting .295 with five homers, nine doubles, and 41 RBIs in 53 games.

Bates, a senior, wrapped up his last home week as a Tar Heel in tremendous fashion.

Bates anchored a North Carolina which posted a 3.50 ERA and 28 strikeouts to just 10 walks in four games last week. The Naperville, Ill., native pitched six shutout innings of relief to lead Carolina to a 5-3 come-from-behind win over Virginia Tech on Friday. The victory helped the Tar Heels secure a series sweep.

In two appearances last week, Bates notched a 1.23 ERA allowing just one run on three hits while striking out nine.
