Baseball Dies A Fitting Death: Swept By Clemson

May 18, 2009
(Friday) Clemson Take Early Lead, Holds On To Defeat Baseball 13-8

Oy.

(Saturday) Clemson Uses First-Inning Uprising To Defeat NC State, 11-5

Ugh. Seriously?

(Sunday) Another Big First Inning For Clemson Dooms Baseball, 5-4

Wow.

So there you have it, folks. Your Wolfpack baseball team, so close to advancing to the College World Series a year before, fails to make it into the top eight slots of the conference standings and will not compete in this year’s ACC tournament. The Pack officially finishes the season fifth in the Atlantic and 11th overall in the league with a 10-20 conference mark and 25-31 overall record. Boston College was the last team in with a 13-15 conference record.

The Atlantic was the weakest division of the two, with only two teams posting winning conference records. Florida State, however, enters the ACC tournament as the top-seed overall.

A minor consolation:

Baseball’s Jimmy Gillheeney Named Second-Team All-ACC

Hopefully the Pack will rebound next season, but it will be a long summer, fall and winter as they prep for 2010.
