OFFICIAL ACC TOURNAMENT THREAD: NO.2 CLEMSON vs. Louisville

CUTrevor 2024-05-24 11:27:03


The Tigers will not advance due to their 8-7 loss to Miami yesterday, but they still need to beat Louisville today to ensure a top-8 national seed in the NCAA Tournament. Going 0-2 in the ACC Tourney against two unranked teams would put the Tigers on the bubble for the top 8. The Tigers took 2 of 3 in Louisville about a month ago.

First pitch is at 3:00, and I'll have updates right here!

Good grief Tigers trail 4-0 in 3rd. Rocco Reid gave up a leadoff HR to start the game, and in the 2nd, he gave up a leadoff double, another HR and a 2-out double for their 4th run. Barlow replaced him right after that and got a fly to end the inning.

Ugh Barlow walked the leadoff man on 4 pitches in the 3rd. He advanced to 2nd on a passed ball, tagged to 3rd on a fly and scored on a grounder. That's vintage Louisville small ball! Tigers now trail 5-0.

Ugh Barlow gives up a pair of singles and a double with one out. McGovern came in from the pen and got the next two out. If the Tigers don't at least make this a game, they are probably gonna get bounced from the top 8 on Monday.



TIGERS TRAIL 6-0 M4.

OBERTOP WALKS IN THE WINNING RUN!!! Lol 4 straight balls!


TIGERS WIN 8-7!!!


If not for the 3-run HR by Obertop in the 8th, the Tigers might have lost a top 8 seed! I think this locks it up for them. Ironically, they won by the same score they lost to Miami yesterday!

The NCAA Selection Show is Monday at noon on ESPN2. I will have live coverage and interviews from DKS right here. Post-game interviews coming shortly!
