Hurricanes Come Up Short in ACC Baseball Championship Game

DURHAM, N.C. — The Miami Hurricanes’ impressive ACC Baseball Championship run came to an end Sunday.


Making their first title game appearance in 11 years, the fourth-seeded Hurricanes fell to the three-seeded Clemson Tigers, 11-5, in front of 4,702 fans at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.


The Tigers (43-17) extended their nation’s longest-active winning streak to 16 games, as Clemson claimed its 11th ACC Baseball Championship crown.


Miami (40-19) held a narrow 5-3 lead at stretch time, but the Hurricanes ran out of gas playing for the fourth straight day.


Clemson scored eight runs in the seventh, highlighted by a pair of home runs.


Second baseman Riley Bertram delivered the game-winning shot, as the fifth-year transfer from Michigan tallied his first homer in a Tiger uniform.


Right-hander Jackson Lindley (3-3) earned the win in relief after tossing two scoreless innings.


Meanwhile, the Hurricanes used six different pitchers in the defeat with fourth-year redshirt sophomore Alejandro Torres (4-1) picking up the loss.

Following the championship game, Miami juniors Zach Levenson, Yohandy Morales and Andrew Walters were named to the All-Tournament Team.

Next, Miami turns its attention to the 2023 college baseball tournament selection show, which is scheduled for 12 p.m. Monday on ESPN2.
