Elon

Overall Record: 44-16

The Elon Phoenix comes into Clemson as the Southern Conference regular season champion. The Phoenix was able to stop College of Charleston’s reign of dominance in the Southern Conference. This will be the second time the Phoenix has traveled to Clemson in 2006.


The Phoenix came to Clemson earlier in the year for a two-game series. The Tigers swept the two game series (5-3, 7-4). Elon did pull off victories against South Carolina, Auburn, and Wake Forest.


The Phoenix comes into the weekend hitting .305 as a team. They are led by Chris Price hitting .352 with 12 home runs and 61 RBIs. The Phoenix has five batters hitting .322 or higher. They are led in home runs by Chris Vasami with 13. Elon and Clemson are the only teams in the regional with two or more players with 10-plus home runs.


Elon’s pitching staff comes into the weekend with a team ERA of 4.50. They are led by starter Matt Chastain. Chastain has a 10-2 record with an ERA of 2.61. Fellow starter Steven Hensley has an impressive 95 strikeouts on the year to only 31 walks. The pitching staff is helped by a .971 fielding percentage.


The Phoenix’s closer Chad Tilley has been lights out in 28 appearances. He has 10 saves with an ERA of 1.98.


This marks the second consecutive year Clemson has hosted the Southern Conference regular season champion in a regional.
