Feb. 19, 2001

CLEMSON – Clemson dropped in the three major college baseball polls released Monday after opening the season with a 2-1 series win against Richmond over the weekend.

The Tigers fell from 10th to 14th in the Baseball America poll, from fifth to 10th in the Collegiate Baseball poll and from eighth to 10th in the Baseball Weekly/ESPN coaches poll.

Clemson stumbled Friday in the season opener losing 10-5 to Richmond, but then rebounded against the Spiders to claim a 14-4 win on Saturday and a 7-3 victory on Sunday.

The team will head to Las Vegas, NV later this week for a two-game series with UNLV Thursday and Friday and a three-game series with Oregon State Friday through Sunday. The Tigers’ next home game is Wednesday, Feb. 28 against Furman at 3:00 PM.
