Wake Forest 12 West Virginia 8
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The No. 13 Wake Forest baseball team advanced to the NCAA Super Regional for the first time since 1999 on Sunday evening (June 4) with a 12-8 victory over West Virginia at David F. Couch Ballpark.
Hosting a regional for the third time in program history, and first since 2002, the Deacs join the 1999 squad, which hosted a regional that year, in advancing to a Super Regional.
The Demon Deacons shined offensively, pounding out 12 runs on 16 hits, including three home runs. Two of the three long balls were hit by Stuart Fairchild, who ended the day with six RBI, one shy of matching his career-high as well as the program record for most RBI in an NCAA Tournament game.
