Wake Forest downs Tigers to open series

CLEMSON, S.C. – Wake Forest scored three two-out runs, including the last two on bases-loaded walks, in the sixth inning and added four runs in the seventh inning in its 8-2 win over Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Friday night. The Demon Deacons, who took a 1-0 lead in the series, improved to 18-10 overall and 5-5 in the ACC. The Tigers fell to 12-12 overall and 4-6 in ACC play.

Wake Forest trailed 1-0 with the bases empty and two outs in the sixth inning before a single by Joey Rodriguez and bloop double by Nate Mondou tied the score. The next four Demon Deacons drew walks to score two more runs. Wake Forest added four runs in the seventh inning thanks in large part to three Tiger errors to pull away.

Matt Pirro (6-1) earned the win by tossing 7.0 strong innings. He allowed just four hits, one run and two walks with seven strikeouts. Tiger starter Matthew CrownoverMatthew Crownover
