After a midweek win over Bethune-Cookman, the Miami Hurricanes will continue on their five-game homestand Friday when visiting Clemson arrives for the fi rst of a three-game set at The Light. First pitch for the series opener is set for 7 p.m.
The Hurricanes hold a 29-26-1 all-time series advantage over the Tigers, but dropped two of three to Clemson in 2012 at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. This weekend set between the two teams will mark the first rendition of the rivalry to be played at The Light since 2008.

The Hurricanes will once again look to their weekend rotation of Chris Diaz, Bryan Radziewski and Andrew Suarez to lead the way against the Tigers. All three starters rank in the top 20 in the Atlantic Coast Conference in ERA during conference play.
Miami is 4-1 in its past five games, paced offensively over the span by David Thompson (five hits, one homerun, five RBI’s) and captain Chantz Mack (seven hits, two runs, five walks, three steals). Mack is riding a season-best five-game hitting streak.
