Clemson drops game one at Wake Forest

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest hit three home runs, including two two-run homers by Will Craig, to jump out to a 6-0 lead and held on to defeat No. 20 Clemson 6-4 at David F. Couch Ballpark on Friday night. The Demon Deacons, who took a 1-0 lead in the series, improved to 11-4 overall and 1-0 in the ACC. The Tigers fell to 9-3 overall and 0-1 in ACC play.

Wake Forest scored three runs in the first inning, capped by Craig’s first long ball of the game. Gavin Sheets led off the second inning with a homer before Craig’s second home run of the game and seventh of the season in the third inning. The Tigers chipped away with a two-run homer by Seth Beer, his fourth long ball of the year which upped his hitting streak to 10 games, in the fourth inning and Chase Pinder’s solo long ball, his team-leading fifth of the year, in the seventh inning.

Demon Deacon starter Parker Dunshee (3-1) earned the win by allowing eight hits, four runs and no walks with eight strikeouts in 7.0 innings pitched. Craig pitched the final 2.0 innings to record his third save of the season. Tiger starter Charlie Barnes (1-2) suffered the loss, as he gave up six hits, six runs and two walks with a career-high nine strikeouts in a career-long 6.1 innings pitched.
