Matt Hammond pitched the ninth for his first save. Jeff Lorick (So., Duluth, Ga.) took the loss and fell to 3-3 after starting and going 3.2 innings, allowing four earned runs, seven hits and three walks with three strikeouts.
After three scoreless innings, Wake Forest (25-31) broke the stalemate with four fourth-inning runs, with three coming on a home run to right field by Allan Dykstra. The Demon Deacons added a pair of runs in the fifth inning on a two-run single by Ben Terry.
Virginia got on the board in the sixth inning. Corey Hunt (So., Charlottesville, Va.) led off with a single, stole second, moved to third on a groundout and scored on a David Adams (Jr., Margate, Fla.) groundout.
Wake got the run back in the seventh inning on a sacrifice fly by Terry.
Virginia scored three times in the eighth to cut the lead in half at 7-4. With one out, David Coleman (Fr., Richmond, Va.) doubled to score Hunt. Adams then reached on an error that allowed Coleman to cross the plate, and one out later Jarrett Parker (Fr., Stafford, Va.) singled to plate Adams.
