2017 ACC Tournament Game 10

Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. Miami Hurricanes (NCAA)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  After a few days of rain delays and re-scheduled games, we finally made it to Slugger Field for some ACC baseball.  Since I practically live at this ballpark now, no need to go into details about it, so we’ll get right to the baseball action.

Wake Forest started off hot, and got all of it’s offense from Stuart Fairchild, who hit solo home runs in the first and third innings to give the Demon Deacons a 2-0 lead.  Miami really didn’t get things going until the seventh, when they cut the lead to one, and they then scored two runs in each the eighth an ninth innings.  The ‘Canes were lead by the bat of Johnny Ruiz, who went 1/3 with two RBI’s an a run scored.  Edgar Michelangeli added a solo shot for Miami, and Romy Gonzalez added an RBI double.

Also, the ACC Network was on hand to cover the action, and I got to chat with one of their reporters.

On the hill for the Demon Deacons, Parker Dunshee threw seven solid innings, only giving up the one run on a dinger, and striking out four.  Griffin Roberts took the loss, giving up four earned runs on three hits.  For Miami, Jeb Bargfeldt pitched five innings, giving up the two home runs.  Relief pitchers Gregory Veliz, Cooper Hammond, and Andrew Cabezas shut down the Deacons the rest of the way.  FINAL:  Demon Deacons 2, Hurricanes 5.

It was a fun game to watch, as the ‘Canes came through big in the last few innings. Not a huge crowd for this one, but that would change drastically, as the home town fans were filtering in for the next game featuring Louisville.

  1. The season just ended for Virginia a few days ago, and already I miss it. But, I’m looking forward to watching this post-season on television anyway, and hope you have Super Regionals tickets. I sure enjoyed watching Davidson do away with North Carolina … and am really looking forward to the Louisville / Kentucky Supers.

    1. Listening to the Baseball America Podcast on the regionals (I’m totally addicted to podcasts, now) they did go on about how not only should Virginia have been hosting, but what a tough draw it was for them to be sent to TCU. I do feel for you there. I hope Louisville plays better against the Wildcats than they did in the ACC tourney. I wasn’t able to get tickets as they sold out before I could sneeze. Still plenty of Little League and Bats baseball in store for us this weekend, though.
