Wake Forest Downs Le Moyne 6-3
March 8, 2003
Winston-Salem, N.C. -- Sophomore Tim Morley carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning and pitched into the seventh to lead 11th-ranked Wake Forest past Le Moyne College 6-3 on Saturday at Hooks Stadium.
Morley (1-0) went seven innnings, allowing just two runs, both solo home runs, on five hits with eight strikeouts and one walk. Junior Adam Hanson finished off the Dolphins to pick up his first save of the season.
The Deacons (9-3) jumped out to an early lead with three runs in the bottom of the first. Adam Bourassa led off with a single, stole second and moved to third on Ryan Hubbard's ground out. Bourassa scored on Ryan Johnson's sacrifice fly.
That would be more than enough run support for Morley who cruised through the first half of the game. He retired the first 12 Le Moyne batters with six strikeouts. Morley surrendered solo home runs to Bryan Frisbee in the fifth and Kyle Brown in the sixth, but other than that, did not allow a runner past second base the entire game.
Wake Forest would tack on two more runs in the fourth on Ben Ingold's single and Hubbard's RBI groundout.
Bourassa, LeFaivre and Getz had two hits a piece for the Deacons.
Wake Forest continues to get outstanding production from its starting pitchers. In 11 games, starters Kyle Sleeth, Seth Hill, Tim Morley and Brian Bach have combined for a 9-2 record with a 2.13 ERA and average of 6 2/3 innings per start with six strikeouts and 1.5 walks.
The Deacons go for the series sweep of Le Moyne on Sunday afternoon at Hooks Stadium. First pitch is set for 12:30 p.m. and senior Seth Hill will make the start for the Old Gold and Black.
