DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – Wake Forest scored go-ahead runs on two bases-loaded walks and a passed ball in the seventh inning to outlast sixth-seeded and two-time defending champion Florida State 7-4 on Tuesday night in the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Championship.
Bobby Seymour and DJ Poteet scored off walks to Bruce Steel and Jake Mueller sandwiched around Shane Muntz’s run off a passed ball. The 10th-seeded Demon Deacons (31-25) left 14 runners on base overall, but sent nine batters to the plate against six FSU pitchers in the seventh.
Jonah Scolaro (3-2) took the loss.
Carter Bach (1-0) got the final out in the sixth to earn the victory for Wake Forest. Mueller, Seymour, Chris Lanzilli and Logan Harvey each had two hits as the Deacons finished with 11.
Drew Parrish allowed one earned run in 5.2 innings, striking out 13 hitters. In four career appearances in the ACC Tournament, Parrish has 35 strikeouts, including a career-high 14 in 2018 against NC State and 13 against Wake Forest.
J.C. Flowers hit a two-run triple and Nander De Sedas followed with a two-run homer in FSU’s four-run fourth that tied the game. The Seminoles (35-21) managed just six hits.
