Box Score

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- David Gill pitched seven strong innings to lead Miami to a 10-2 win over Wake Forest in the opening game of the NCAA Super Regional Friday.

Gill (11-0) allowed two runs on four hits and struck out seven. He has won his last eight starts.

Mike MacDougal, the Kansas City Royals' first-round pick in Wednesday's Major League draft, was staked to a 2-0 lead and took a no-hitter into the fifth, but ended up with the loss.

MacDougal (13-3) gave up seven runs - five earned - on five hits and six walks in 6 1/3 innings. He struck out nine, but threw two costly wild pitches.

Scott Paeley led off the game with a walk, moved to third on Jason Aquilante's single and scored on John Palmieri's sacrifice fly. Aquilante later scored on a ground out.

Miami tied the game in the fifth when MacDougal walked Brian Seever with the bases loaded and then threw a wild pitch allowing Marcus Nettles to score.

An Aquilante error on what should have been an inning-ending double-play, allowed the Hurricanes to load the bases in the sixth. Chris Clute followed with a sacrifice fly and MacDougal threw another wild pitch allowing Mike Rodriguez to score, giving Miami a 4-2 lead.

Kevin Brown had an RBI double in the seventh before David Bush relieved MacDougal. Bush than threw a wild pitch that let Lale Esquivel come home and Brown later scored on Rodriguez's sacrifice fly.

An inning later, Nettles, singled, stole second and scored on Seever's single. Matt Price misplayed Manny Crespo's single, allowing Seever to score from first and extending the Hurricane's lead to 9-2. Esquivel doubled to score Crespo to complete the scoring.

The Deamon Deacons equaled a season low with four hits. Besides the three wild pitches, Wake Forest committed three errors, hit a batter and had a passed ball.
