TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA —Wake Forest (33-15, 15-9) leads Florida State (32-18, 11-12) 4-2 in the middle of the 5th inning in game one of a three game series at Dick Howser Stadium that was postponed because of inclement weather Friday night.
The game will resume at 3 p.m. Saturday with the second game to follow at least an hour after its conclusion (6 p.m. earlier possible start).
Gavin Sheets absolutely crushed a two-run shot to right field in the top of the 4th inning to give Wake a 2-0 lead.
A Stuart Fairchild solo shot gave Wake a 4-2 lead in the top of the 5th.
Wake starter Parker Dunshee was pushed to throw 34 pitches in the 1st inning, but had settled in, striking out six through four innings of work. He won’t return to action the remainder of the series.
“It hurts us, because we still had our starter in the game. We would have gotten at least another two innings out of Parker Dunshee, and maybe three if he was economical,” Wake Forest coach Tom Walter said. “Not getting those six outs from him is definitely going to affect us the rest of this series. That’s baseball. You have to figure out a way to piece it together.”
Colin Peluse (2-1, 4.28) will take the mound for Wake when the game resumes.
“They will be ready. I’m not worried about that,” Walter said about his team. “We’ve played three or four doubleheaders this year, so this is just part of a normal spring. We’ll be ready to go.”
