Baseball Falls to UNC Greensboro

April 8, 1998

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--In a strange game that saw UNC Greensboro score four runs before getting its first hit, the Spartans defeated Wake Forest 8-6 in college baseball action at Hooks Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

UNC Greensboro improves to 25-13 while Wake Forest falls to 24-14.

Jonathan Jackson (3-3) earned the win for UNCG pitching five innings and allowing two hits and two runs. Jason Parsons earned his fourth save of the season for the Spartans.

Mike MacDougal (4-4) took the loss for Wake Forest. MacDougal pitched 5.1 innings giving up no hits and six runs. All six runs were unearned and aided by the right hander's eight walks and second baseman Sunny Chiou's three errors. MacDougal also struck out seven Spartan batters.

The Spartans scored two of the runs in the first inning and four more in the sixth inning to make the score 6-0. All four of the runs in the inning were charged to MacDougal, but two were scored on a two-out single given up by reliever Will Rikard.

Wake Forest answered in the bottom of the sixth when Jon Palmieri hit his seventh home run of the season. The three-run shot to right center field made the score 6-3.

UNCG picked up two more runs in the seventh when Steve Moekan led off with a single. He scored on a single by Michael Krekorian. Krekorian would later score on a sacrifice fly by Dominic Pattie.

Wake Forest plated three runs in the bottom of the eighth, but that rally ended when UNCG coach Mike Gaski put Parsons in the game. Parsons got the final two outs of the inning and allowed a one out single in the ninth before Wake's Ben Danosky hit into a game ending double play.

UNCG's Pattie and Jeremy Purcell both scored runs and collected RBI without getting hits in the game. Pattie scored twice and brought in two runs while Purcell scored once and had one RBI. Palmieri was Wake's leading hitter going two for four, scoring two runs and plating three runs.

Wake Forest will travel to NC State to begin a three game ACC series on Friday. The Friday and Saturday games are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. while Sunday's game is slated for a 1:30 p.m. start.
