Clemson Baseball wins series 2-1at Duke

Clemson Baseball won a road series against a conference opponent ranked in the Top-3 in the nation.

That statement seems awfully lofty if you watched the series but it is 100% true. The Duke Blue Devils rose in the rankings following their road series win against previous No. 1 Wake Forest. The Tigers won 2 of 3 games in Durham to secure the series victory.

And yes, in case you didn’t notice, the Tigers wore their green Military Appreciation unis on St. Patty’s Day. Nice touch.

The Tigers were by no means dominant, but they got the job done.
