Louisville baseball falls to Clemson in ACC Tournament

The Louisville baseball team fell behind early for the second day in a row, but could not muster the major comeback they pulled off against North Carolina on Wednesday, and fell to fifth-seeded Clemson 7-1.

If you feel like you must, here are the highlights:

The good news? Because of the way the tournament is set up, the game essentially became irrelevant just hours later.

Florida State's 8-4 win over North Carolina set up a situation where the winner of Saturday's game between the Cardinals and Seminoles will play in the championship game. U of L and FSU could be the only teams in Pool A with 2-1 records, in which case, the Cards would win the head-to-head tiebreaker. If Clemson knocks off UNC and Louisville, Florida State and the Tigers all finish 2-1, Dan McDonnell's team would advance via the regular season win percentage tiebreaker.
