Baseball Downs ODU, 10-4

May 11, 1998

NORFOLK, Va. - Wake Forest pounded out 15 hits and scored 10 runs in the first five innings to defeat Old Dominion, 10-4, on Sunday evening at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex in Norfolk, VA.

With the victory, Wake Forest wraps up the regular season with a record of 36-20 while Old Dominion falls to 24-27.

Junior Jon Palmieri had a banner day, as he set two new Wake Forest single season records. The ACCs leading hitter had two hits on the evening to give him 96 hits for the season and his double in the fifth inning gave him a school mark of 27 two-baggers this season.

The Demon Deacons scored four runs in the first as Scott Daeley led off the game with a first-pitch home run, his third of the season. Sunny Chiou knocked in two runs with a double in the first. Chiou, Will Rikard and Ben Danosky each drove in two runs, while both Danosky and Rikard had three hits in the game.

Wake Forest starter Mike MacDougal (6-4) picked up the win in a staff day, as the Deacs used six different pitchers on the afternoon. Andy Lee (4-5) took the loss for Old Dominion, allowing four runs in 0.2 innings of work.

The Demon Deacons will next play in the 1998 Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament. Wake Forest earned the #5-seed and will take on fourth-seeded NC State on Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
