Wake Forest Drops Weekend Series Opener to Miami, 11-0
May 11, 2012
CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The Wake Forest baseball team fell 11-0 in its opener of a three-game weekend series at the University of Miami on Friday, May 11 at Alex Rodriguez Park.
With the loss, the Demon Deacons drop to 27-21 and 9-16 in the ACC. Miami improves to 31-17 overall and 13-12 in the conference with the win.
Hurricane starter Eric Erickson fired six shutout innings and did not allow a hit until the sixth inning, as the Demon Deacons were shut out for just the second time this season and were held to a season-low one hit.
Deacon starter Tim Cooney fired five innings and allowed nine runs, but just five earned as the Deacon defense did him no favors by committing a season-high seven errors. The last time Wake Forest committed seven miscues in a game came back on February 21, 2010 versus Dayton.
Game two will get started tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. at Alex Rodriguez Park. Jack Fischer is slated to make his third start of the season for the Deacs.
The game will be televised on Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast.
