Clemson Tigers Baseball season comes to an end

The Clemson Tigers baseball season came to a bitter end today as they lost to Cal State Fullerton in the elimination game 7-6. It's a disappointing end to an otherwise very successful season. This team started the season as #1 in the nation and went on to win the ACC regular season title and the ACC Tournament Championship.

Though I'm proud of the teams accomplishments this year, I'm very disappointed the way we played in this College World Series. We were the #1 seed in this tournament but from the first game against Georgia Tech we didn't look like it. We came back from a 4-0 hole going into the 8th to win 8-4. In game 2 against UNC though we couldn't do anything, only accounting for 3 hits. In the elimination game against Cal St Fullerton our starting pitcher couldn't even complete the first inning putting us in a 3-0 hole though we did manage to post 3 runs ourselves to tie it, we still had to lean on the bullpen for 8 innings to shut them down and we couldn't. The way we played at the end of the season, anything less than a National Championship would be bust.

Not sure what to expect from the Tigers in 07 as we had 10 players and 4 recruits drafted two weeks ago. I don't expect for a repeat of this year.
