While Clemson and Maryland spent most of the weekend watching it rain, the rest of the ACC's teams were able to get in their scheduled series.

There was just one other ACC series on the schedule. Virginia Tech claim a 2-1 series victory over Boston College, winning 1-0 in 12 innings and then 7-5, and losing the final game, 5-3.

N.C. State swept a three-game home series against Presbyterian, winning by scores of 5-1, 8-1 and 12-3.

Miami swept its series against St. John's, winning 12-3, 4-2 and 6-4.

Florida State swept Central Florida by scores of 4-2, 6-1 and 5-4, while Georgia Tech lost two of three games to Coastal Carolina. The Jackets won the opener 4-2, but then dropped 7-4 and 12-8 decisions.

Georgia Tech has now lost eight of its last 10 games.

Duke dropped a 4-3 decision to Liberty on Sunday.

Today's doubleheader at Doug Kingsmore Stadium shapes up as critical for the Tigers in the ACC Atlantic Division race. Florida State holds the top spot at 16-8, with N.C. State second at 15-8 and Clemson third at 15-10. Maryland is next at 9-16, followed by Wake Forest at 7-17 and Boston College at 3-23.

The Tigers and Terps will play today's first game at 1:30 p.m., with the second game set for 7 p.m.

Clemson plays out of conference this week against Furman and Georgia Southern, and then will conclude its regular season the following weekend at Florida State.

North Carolina and Virginia, which did not play last weekend because of academic exams, lead the Coastal Division with 19-3 and 17-7 records, respectively Georgia Tech is third at 12-12, followed by Virginia Tech at 13-14, Miami at 11-13 and Duke at 9-15.

Miami currently leads Maryland in the battle for the eighth and final spot in the ACC tournament.
