No. 4 Wake Forest Remains Perfect at Home; Sweeps Saturday Doubleheader Versus Notre Dame

Notre Dame

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The No. 4 Wake Forest baseball team swept a Saturday doubleheader against Notre Dame to remain perfect at home and claim its second ACC series win of the 2023 season. 

Wake Forest (18-2, 4-1 ACC) has won at least 18 of its first 20 games for just the second time in program history, joining the 1949 Deacs, who hold the program’s best open to a campaign at 20-0. 

With its 13th win of the season against Cornell on March 5, this year’s squad also joined the 1949 ballclub as the only two Demon Deacon baseball teams to open a season 13-0. 

The Deacs are now 14-0 home this season, outscoring opponents 151-29 inside the friendly confines of The Couch. Since last year, Wake Forest has posted a 40-7-1 record and outscoring opponents, 462-167, in home games. 

This year’s team is believed to be the only squad in program history to win its first 14 home games to begin a season. 

Wake Forest has now claimed its first two ACC series of the season after taking two out of three at Duke last weekend in Durham. 

On Saturday, Wake Forest’s starting pitchers, Rhett Lowder and Sean Sullivan, combined to throw 13 innings, allowing just two earned runs, five hits and two walks while striking out 18 batters.

Overall, Wake Forest struck out a combined 25 batters and allowed just four runs and 11 hits. 

In the two games, the Deacs scored 16 runs on 21 hits, eight of which went for extra bases with three doubles, one triple and four home runs.
