WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Logan Davidson hit a solo homer in the eighth inning to break a 5-5 tie and lift No. 12 Clemson to a 7-5 victory over Wake Forest at David F. Couch Ballpark on Friday night. The Tigers, who took a 1-0 lead in the series, improved to 27-11 overall and 12-7 in the ACC. The Demon Deacons fell to 18-21 overall and 10-9 in ACC play.
