Hendricks Leads Deacon Baseball Past Virginia

April 24, 1998

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Junior John Hendricks pitched his sixth consecutive complete game to lead Wake Forest to a 3-2 victory over Virginia on Friday afternoon at UVA Baseball Field in Charlottesville, VA. With the victory, Wake Forest improves its record to 32-17 and 11-10 in the ACC while Virginia falls to 26-19 and 5-13 in league play. Hendricks (11-2) picked up his 11th win of the season, tying the 48-year old school record set by Mo Bauer in 1950. He allowed two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out eight batters. He has now pitched a complete game in each of his last six outings.

Bradley Nickols (3-2) took the loss in relief for Virginia despite allowing only one run in four innings of work.

The Demon Deacons jumped on the scoreboard first in the top of the fourth inning to take a 2-0 lead. Andrew Riepe and Will Rikard both walked and moved up into scoring position on a wild pitch. Freshman Chase Voshell delivered a two-out two-RBI single to left field to give the Deacs the lead. Virginia rallied to tie the score at 2-2 in the bottom of the sixth with solo home runs from Brian Sherlock and E.J. Anderson. Wake Forest responded in the top of the seventh. Scott Daeley delivered a one out single and advanced to third base on a hit and run play that produced a Ben Danosky single. Jon Palmieri plated Daeley with a groundout to second base to give the Deacs a 3-2 lead. The Demon Deacons and Cavaliers will continue their three-game series on Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
