Clemson and Virginia have met 146 times on the diamond, with the Tigers holding a 102-44 lead in the series dating back to the 1955 season. Last year at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, the Cavaliers swept the three-game series, which included two one-run victories. The two teams last met in a three-game series at UVa Baseball Stadium 2010. The Cavaliers won two of three games despite both teams scoring 12 runs in the series.

Virginia has won 15 of the last 16 games in the series after the Tigers won 100 of the first 130 matchups. The Tigers hold a 40-25 lead in games played at Virginia and a 92-38 advantage in ACC regular-season games.
Jack Leggett has a 31-25 record against Virginia as Clemson’s head coach, including a 13-12 mark at UVa Baseball Stadium. Leggett was 2-0 against Virginia as head coach at Vermont, meaning he is 33-24 all-time against the Cavaliers.

Virginia’s pitching rotation for the series has yet to be determined.

Clemson will send out junior righty Dominic Leone (3-1, 5.09 ERA) on Saturday. The Norwich, CT native has made five starts for a total of 23.0 innings pitched. He has given up 17 hits (.218 opponents’ batting average) and 14 walks with 16 strikeouts.
The Tigers will start sophomore righty Kevin Pohle (3-0, 1.09 ERA) on Sunday. The Saint Louis, MO native has made three starts and two relief appearances for a total of 24.2 innings pitched. He has yielded 25 hits (.263 opponents’ batting average) and eight walks with 19 strikeouts.
Go Tigers!
