The Wake Forest Demon Deacons scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth to pull out a 5-4 victory over Gardner Webb on Tuesday. Wake Forest was held to three hits and no runs through the first eight innings. The ninth inning was a different story as the Deacons came up with five hits and five runs for their third walk-off victory of the year. Willy Fox hit a two run double to drive in the tying and winning runs to be the hero on the day. Wake Forest will be back in action on Wednesday when they host High Point. Wake will send Alex Weisner (0-0, 8.31 ERA) to the mound to face Brandon Moore (0-0, 9.00 ERA). Gardner-Webb will be back in action on Friday when they visit Georgia.
