Clemson clinches ACC Regular Season Title

Clemson's Baseball team clinched the ACC Regular Season Title this weekend while sweeping, excuse me, dominating #22 ranked Wake Forest.

In the first game of the three game set, Clemson (enter any adjective you want here) destroyed Wake Forest by a score of 26-1. The game included 7 Home runs, that's right, 7, one short of the school record 8 set against the hated Gamecocks. Clemson also had 25 hits, 13 of which went for extra bases including the 7 HR's. Clemson scored in every inning but the second and they score 7 in the 4th, 6 in the 7th, and 5 in the 8th.

Clemson won game 2 6-0 on the strength of Josh Cribb's pitching performance, working 7 strong giving up only 6 hits, no walks with 4 K's. Clemson won game 3 7-4.

If you're not keeping track at home, that's an aggregate score of 39-4 and Wake Forest came in ranked #22 in the nation. That's how good this Clemson baseball team has been lately. With the sweep, Clemson has won 15 straight games, including 13 straight conference games.

Clemson is now 45-13, 24-6 ACC. Clemson will face Wake Forest again on Wednesday in the opening round of the ACC Tournament.

Congrats Clemson, good luck in the ACC Tourny.
