ACC: Fashion Review
By Glenn Tanner - May 23, 2007
After five and a half innings, Miami leads Clemson 3-1.
Miami's Scott Maine has allowed only four hits and an unearned run. He's out-pitching Clemson's Daniel Moskos, who Baseball America rates as the #8 prospect in the upcoming draft. Moskos has allowed eight hits through six innings and has struck out just two.
Miami and Clemson both got runs in the fifth.
The Canes moved their lead to 3-0 when Blake Tekotte doubled and Jemile Weeks delivered an RBI single to center for the second time tonight.
Miami helped Clemson get that run back when SS Ryan Jackson booted DJ Mitchell's grounder for the game's first error. An out later, JD Burgess singled Mitchell to third, then Brad Chalk yanked one down the right-field line for an RBI double. With only one out and two runners in scoring position, Maine bowed up, fanned Wilson Boyd, and got a grounder to end the inning.
In my old-school opinion, these two teams have some of the ugliest uniforms in the nation. But tonight, they're not that bad.
Clemson came out wearing their purple batting practice jerseys with the orange hats, nearly causing me to lose my hundreds of chicken nuggets, but for the game, they're wearing all white with the orange hats.
I think Miami's dark gray uniforms are hideous, but tonight they're wearing white pants, black shirts with orange numbers, and black hats with orange brims. Other than the funky number font and the weird green cutout under their arms, it's not a bad look for Nike.
