Tigers Take Momentum Into Road Stretch

by - Correspondent -

The Clemson Tiger baseball team came into the series againts North Carolina needing a boost of confidence. The Tigers may have found what they needed outscoring the Heels 17-6 over the three game series. North Carolina came into Saturday's game with a six-game winning streak. Kris Harvey stepped up and led the Tigers to win the last two games.

Harvey had 10 RBIs, three home runs, and hit barely below .500 in the Tigers four games last week. Now the Tigers will head to Old Dominion for a two-game series and to Maryland for a three-game series this weekend looking to move safely above .500. The probable starters for mid-week are David Kopp and Stephen Faris.

The Tigers now have the confidence to really go on a run. The young bats are starting to come to life, and the pitching has been fantastic. Josh Cribb has been Greg Maddux like in more ways than one. Cribb has pitched brilliantly, but the Tigers have yet to give him any run support. Andy D'Alessio really helped his case last week. D'Alessio was able to convert with runners in scoring position and two outs against Furman and North Carolina. His three-run homer Sunday really broke the game open.

A five game road stretch will not be easy, but it appears the Tigers are finding their way. This weekend they will look to excercise the demons from two years ago where Maryland took two of three.
