The Demon Deacons (13-6, 3-1 ACC) took a 1-0 series lead over the Tigers (10-6, 3-1 ACC).
In the eighth inning, Charlie Morgan's run-scoring, bloop single tied the score,
then Ben Breazeale laced a run-scoring double to left-center to give Wake Forest the
lead for good. Chris Okey's two-out, three-run homer on an 0-2 pitch in the fourth
inning gave Clemson a 3-1 lead in the fourth inning.
Starter Jack Fischer (2-1) earned the win, while Aaron Fossas recorded his fourth
save of the year. Tiger reliever Clate Schmidt (2-3) suffered the loss.
Due to the threat of inclement weather Sunday, the series will conclude with a
doubleheader Saturday starting at 1 p.m. There will be approximately 40 minutes in
between the nine-inning contests.
