CHARLOTTE, N.C.- All Clemson is LIVE in Charlotte as Clemson finishes up pool play in the ACC Tournament against No. 1 seed Virginia Tech.
While the Tigers have no chance to move beyond pool play, tonight's game against the Hokies is anything but meaningless. After losing to No. 8 seed North Carolina on Tuesday night, Clemson finds itself squarely on the NCAA Tournament bubble.
Freshman RHP Billy Barlow gets the start for the Tigers and will be going on short rest. Barlow comes in at 2-3 on the season with an ERA of 4.58 and a WHIP of 1.27. Opponents are hitting .242 against the freshman.
Virginia Tech will go with RHP Ryan Metz, who is 2-0 with an ERA of 2.67. The senior has made 14 appearances on the season, but just two starts. He has a WHIP of 1.11 and opponents are hitting just .233 against him.
