Clemson baseball looks to boost stock at Maryland
CLEMSON — Clemson baseball travels to Maryland this weekend in search of a series victory as the Tigers (21-17, 9-9 ACC) remain in the NCAA tournament picture but have a difficult schedule remaining with a trip to Georgia Tech and a regular series finale series against No. 1 ranked Florida State remaining. Maryland is 25-14 and 7-11 in the ACC.
Clemson is third in the ACC’s Atlantic Division, seven games back of Florida State and two games behind N.C. State. Clemson is tied with Virginia for the fifth-best record in the ACC.
Despite Clemson’s slow start to the season, the Tigers have won two of three series in conference play, and Baseball America’s early April NCAA tournament projection had the Tigers as a No. 2 seed, hosted by South Carolina at the Columbia Regional.
Clemson will send Maryland native Kevin Brady to the mound in the series opener. He will be followed by Dominic Leone and Kevin Pohle.
Maryland averages 5.2 runs per game and has a .359 on-base percentage as a team.
