Clemson is off to an 8-0 start this season. Last season the Tigers didn’t win their eighth game until March 21st. Monte Lee pledged to fix things after suffering his first losing season with the Tigers in 2021. So far, so good. The hitting has been outstanding (.319 average) and the pitching has been lights out (2.59 ERA/3 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio), and the defense has been solid with just three errors.
This weekend the Tigers get to measure themselves against their rivals from USC. The Gamecocks won the Palmetto BaseBrawl last season two games to one, and they are off to a 7-1 start. Earlier this week Lee joined us to preview the series.
