Wake Forest Hammers High Point 11-2
March 19, 2003
High Point, N.C. -- The 14th-ranked Wake Forest baseball team won its fifth straight game, an 11-2 victory at High Point on Wednesday to improve to 14-5 overall. The game was called due to darkness in the top of the ninth inning with the Deacons threatening to increase their lead.
Jamie D'Antona homered twice for his sixth and seventh of the season. He finished 3-for-4 with three runs scored, three RBI and two walks. D'Antona leads the Atlantic Coast Conference with 40 RBI in just 19 games.
Wake Forest (14-5) scored runs in six of the eight innings to steady increase its lead and a light rain increased at the same rate.
The Deacons used three pitchers to limit High Point to two runs on six hits. Brian Bach (3-0) got the win on a declared Staff Day for three scoreless innings allowing just one hit. Kyle Young pitched four innings, giving up two runs on five hits. Daniel Davidson tossed a scoreless eighth inning with a pair of strikeouts.
Bach, a Winston-Salem native and graduate of Mount Tabor high school, improved his career record at Wake Forest to 9-2.
Wake Forest returns to ACC action this weekend with a three-game set at Chapel Hill. First pitch against the Tar Heels is set for 3:00 p.m. on Friday and Kyle Sleeth will take the mound for the Deacons.
