Clemson softball falls short in ACC softball championship game

·1 min read

Clemson dealt with another heartbreaking ACC championship loss Saturday, as the Tigers fell to Florida State 8-6 at Pittsburgh’s Vartabedian Field.

Florida state dealt the Tigers their second straight ACC final loss, as Clemson fell 1-0 to Duke in the game last season.

A four-run sixth inning lifted the Seminoles to victory as Mack Leonard hit a three-run home to give the Tigers opposition a lead. Clemson had their chance to take it back in the seventh but couldn’t put together enough runs.

It is just Clemson softball’s third season and the Tigers’ season isn’t over yet. Heading into the game, Clemson was ranked No.8 in the NCAA’s RPI rankings, so we will wait to see if they get the opportunity to host the program’s first regional.

We will have to wait till Sunday when the NCAA reveals the tournament field before knowing.
