The Clemson Tigers are the #11 seed in next week’s ACC baseball tournament and have been assigned to “Pool B” with #2-seed Georgia Tech and 7th seeded Louisville. The tournament will feature a pool-play format, leading into a four-team, single-elimination bracket to determine the league champion.

Clemson limps into the postseason having lost five of its last six, including a sweep at the hands of Duke this weekend. However, the Tigers did have good luck against one of their “Pool B” opponents in Louisville. Clemson swept the Cardinals at Doug Kingsmore Stadium as part of a season high seven-game winning streak during late April and early May. The Tigers outscored UofL 31-12 over the course of those three home games.

The following weekend, Clemson was swept in Atlanta by Georgia Tech, which started a string of three consecutive series losses to close out ACC play.

Atlantic Division champion Notre Dame earned the number one seed for the tournament, which will be played at Truist Field in Charlotte, home of the Triple-A Knights.
