Clemson baseball swept its opening ACC series against Boston College over the weekend to move up in the latest college baseball rankings.

Among individual leaders, junior left-hander Sam Weatherly ranks third in the league in opposing batting average (.096) and fourth in ERA (0.79) and strikeouts (43).
The Tigers return to action with a pair of midweek games, starting Tuesday versus Presbyterian (6 p.m.) and then Wednesday with Winthrop (6 p.m.) before traveling to Wake Forest on the weekend (6 p.m. Friday/3 p.m. Saturday/1 p.m. Sunday).
