ACC Weekend Recap: March 4th

It was the last weekend of non-conference play for most of the ACC and weather played a major factor in most of the series and events that occurred over the weekend. Duke, Virginia, and Florida State went into the Saturday morning as the last undefeated teams in the conference. When all was said and done that evening, however, only Link Jarrett's Florida State Seminoles remain among the undefeated. It was another exciting slate of matchups and we learned some new things about certain teams.

#16 North Carolina (10-2) Sweeps Princeton

Game 1: UNC 12-2

Game 2: UNC 11-2

Game 3: UNC 13-6

North Carolina had to move around their schedule a bit over the weekend due to rain, but the Tar Heels took care of business in their three game sweep of Princeton. Freshman Folger Boaz was elite again in his third career start as he went 7 innings and struck out 9. Vance Honeycutt hit his 6th home run of the season as UNC cruised to the 12-2 win on Friday afternoon.

In game 2 on Saturday, Elon transfer Shea Sprague made his first start in Carolina blue and had a decent four inning appearance. Highly touted freshman catcher Luke Stevenson hit his first collegiate home run while seven members of the starting lineup had multi-hit days in the 11-2 win.

UNC clinched the sweep with a 13-6 victory on Sunday, thanks to another big performance from Stevenson, who homered for the second time in as many days. Alberto Osuna and Anthony Donofrio chipped in with a double apiece, and the offense scored double digit runs again.

#21 NC State (9-2) Sweeps Towson

Game 1: NC St 6-5

Game 2: NC St 15-4

Game 3: NC St 10-0

Game 4: NC St 14-4

It was a noon start on Friday between these two teams and NC State needed some late inning heroics to pull out the win. Towson had scored two in the 8th and one in the 9th to tie the game at 5-5 heading into the bottom of the 9th. But the Wolfpack didn't panic as Noah Soles worked a leadoff walk before Eli Serrano III was struck by a pitch. Towson opted to walk Alek Marakewicz to load the bases and set up the double play with one out, but Drew Lanphere singled to deep left to give the home team a 6-5 walk off win.

That was the closest Towson ever got to winning a game in this series as each of the next three games over the weekend were ended early due to the 10-run mercy rule. The Wolfpack offense score 45 runs over the four games and racked up hits and walks up and down the lineup. Sam Highfill and Logan Whitaker had bounce back appearances on the mound, but Dominic Fritton still doesn't look his best.

#9 Duke (10-1) Wins Series vs Akron

Game 1: Duke 6-0

Game 2: Akron 4-3

Game 3: Duke 7-2

Duke once again cruised to a Friday victory thanks to a stellar start by ace Jonathan Santucci. The southpaw had his best start of his season, going 6 innings of one hit ball while striking out 14 Akron batters on just 82 pitches. Offensively Ben Miller stayed hot, hitting a pair of doubles while Zac Morris, Devin Obee, and Macon Winslow all slugged home runs in the 6-0 win.

Duke finally suffered its first loss of the season on Saturday after the offense struggled to get going in a 4-3 loss. Andrew Healy had his best start of the year, going 5 one run innings and striking out 9, but the Blue Devils found themselves down 4-2 heading to the 9th. Devin Obee would hit his second home run of the weekend to lead off the inning, but Duke never threatened to tie the game.

The dominant pitching performances continued as freshman two-way star Kyle Johnson got his first start on the mound. He went four innings of shutout baseball in Duke's 7-2 win. Ben Miller hit his 5th home run of the year and Zac Morris added his 6th before closer Charlie Beilenson closed out the game with three shutout innings for his 5th save.

Virginia Tech (8-3) Wins Series vs Stony Brook

Game 1: Virginia Tech 6-3

Game 2: Virginia Tech 11-5

Game 3: Stony Brook 4-3

The Hokies offense cooled down a bit following a stellar streak of games where they were hitting double digit extra base hits every game. They only hit four on Friday, all of them doubles, as they won 6-3 behind another great start from Brett Renfrow. The true freshman went 6 shutout innings with seven strikeouts. He's lowered his season ERA to 1.69 in 16 innings pitched.

The Hokies continue to see improved pitching early this season as Wyatt Parliament delivered 5.1 innings and only gave up three runs in their 11-5 win on Saturday. With Garrett Michel out of the lineup, Virginia Tech stayed slugging with six extra base hits. Eddie Micheletti, Sam Tackett, and Ben Watson all homered.

Despite another good start from Griffin Stieg on Sunday, the Hokies were unable to complete the sweep as they lost 4-3. They wasted Stieg's 5.2 shutout innings as the offense only managed just one extra base hit on the day. Garrett Michel was missing for the second straight game and appears to have been injured during Friday's game.

Notre Dame (8-2) Sweeps Tennessee Tech

Game 1: Notre Dame 14-3

Game 2: Notre Dame 15-11

Game 3: Notre Dame 14-11

The Irish, without slugger David Glancy in the lineup, hit a division one leading 15 home runs in a wild sweep of Tennessee Tech over the weekend. After a routine 14-3 win on Friday to open the series, Notre Dame decided they wanted to do things the hard way during the rest of the weekend.

Jackson Dennies gave up 8 earned runs in 1.1 innings and Notre Dame found themselves down 9-3 early. But thanks to the middle infield duo of Estevan Moreno and Jack Penney, the Irish were able to storm back to win 15-11. Penney went 3-6 with two doubles and a home run while Moreno went 3-4 with 3 home runs and 6 RBIs. It was the second three homer game for the sophomore after he achieved it against Virginia last season.

Caden Spivey struggled massively in the finale and Notre Dame once again found itself down big early, this time 9-2. But five more home runs and three doubles helped erase the deficit and find them triumphant in a shootout once again. Penney hit his third and fourth homers of the weekend as the Irish downed Tennessee Tech to complete the sweep, 14-11.

Boston College (6-3) Goes 2-1 in Central Virginia

Game 1: BC defeats Richmond, 7-2

Game 2: BC defeats William & Mary, 9-7

Game 3: VCU defeats BC, 10-1

Boston College got their best John West start of the young season on Friday afternoon when he shut down the Richmond Spiders in the first game of the Central Virginia Classic. Cam Caraher led the way with a 3-3 day offensively, and the Eagles won 7-2.

After two decent starts to begin the season, AJ Colarusso ran into trouble against William & Mary as BC found themselves down 6-0 early. Tyler Mudd and Michael Farinelli were fantastic in relief, only giving up one run over 7.1 innings the rest of the way. The Eagles chipped away and tied the game in the 6th thanks to a Cam Leary RBI single to right. Vince Cimini would give BC the lead in the next at bat with an RBI single. The Eagles would go to 2-0 on the weekend with the 9-7 comeback win.

Unfortunately for Boston College, they ran into a strong VCU team in their Sunday finale. Things unraveled when they allowed an 8 run inning in the 5th and the Eagles never really threatened after that in the 10-1 loss.

#10 Virginia (10-1) Wins Series vs UMass

Game 1: UVA 4-3

Game 2: UMass 10-5

Game 3: UVA 10-6

Virginia extended its regular season non-conference winning streak to 38 straight games following a thrilling 10 inning come from behind walk off win. Evan Blanco had his best start of the year with 5.2 shut out innings, but the offense struggled much of the game. Down 3-2 in the bottom of the 9th, Henry Godbout led off the inning with a double down the left field line before coming around to tie the game on a Bobby Whalen sacrifice fly. Godbout would deliver the winning hit in the bottom of the 10th when he poked a single into right center to drive in Harrison Didawick for the 4-3 win.

Virginia right hander Jack O'Connor continued his early season struggles as he gave up four earned runs on Saturday in Virginia's first loss of the season and first regular season non-conference loss since 2022. The offense mustered just one extra base hit in the 10-5 loss to the minuteman.

In the rubber match on Sunday, Jay Woolfollk shined as he made his second start of the year. The former UVA quarterback went 6 innings of one run ball in the 10-6 win. Freshman Henry Ford added to his home run total with a blast to left, while Godbout continued to shine with his first homer of the year. The UVA second baseman is hitting .515 on the young season with 7 doubles, a home run, and 10 walks.

Louisville (7-4) Sweeps Youngstown State

Game 1: UL 19-1

Game 2: UL 9-5

Game 3: UL 10-2

Louisville extended their winning streak to seven in a row as they swept a winless Youngstown State over the weekend. The starting trio of Sebastian Gongora, Evan Webster, and Patrick Forbes combined to give up just one earned run over 16 innings whiles striking out 22 batters. Offensively, Brandon Anderson continues to heat up, going 5-10 on the weekend with his second home run.

Pittsburgh (8-1) Wins Las Vegas College Classic

Game 1: Pitt defeats Oklahoma, 19-9

Game 2: Pitt defeats Cal, 19-7

The Pitt Panthers scored an incredible 38 runs over two games in Las Vegas as they won the Vegas College Baseball Classic on run differential over Ohio State. Despite not getting to play Ohio State due to weather on Saturday, Pitt continued to impress in the early season and is now receiving votes in the CBC Top 25 poll.

The Panthers run ruled Oklahoma in 7 innings on Friday night thanks to an offensive onslaught that included 7 extra base hits and twelve walk drawn. Ryan Andrade was unable to build off his stellar start from a week ago against Washington, but Ethan Firoved continues to look good coming out of the bullpen.

With the Ohio State matchup on Saturday canceled due to rain, Jack Sokol took the mound on Sunday for Pitt and dazzled. After a little rocky first inning, he settled down to deliver six innings of one run baseball while striking out 6. He left the game with his team leading 13-1. It was the freshman Ryan Zuckerman who broke the game open with a three run blast in the 5th to make it 8-1. Cal would score just enough runs to force the game to go the full 9 innings, but Pitt would keep scoring as well. Jayden Melendez hit two home runs while Luke Cantwell and Jake Kendro would add moonshots of their own in the 19-7 win.

Miami (6-5) Drops Series to #5 Florida

Game 1: UF 7-3

Game 2: Miami 10-6

Game 3: UF 8-4

Miami got decent starting pitching all weekend, but were unable to score enough runs in two of the three games they hosted against #5 Florida. Gage Ziehl finally looked more like himself on Friday as he posted a quality start and departed with his team trailing by just one run, 4-3. Unfortunately the bullpen couldn't keep it close for the offense and the Gators won, 7-3.

Rafe Schlesinger continued his great start to the year with a quality start of his own on Saturday. He went 6.1 innings and only gave up 3 earned runs as Miami led the whole way. Jason Torres hit a three run blast in the first inning for his 7th of the year and the Hurricanes dominated from there. Edgardo Villegas would hit his first bomb of the year in the 2nd while Daniel Cuvet would add a three run homer of his own in the 7th. Miami evened the series with a 10-6 win.

Florida superstar Jac Caglianone got the start on the mound in the rubber match and Miami was never able to find an answer for him. Down 6-0 in the 8th, Dorian Gonzalez Jr hit a grand slam to make it 6-4, but it was too little too late. The Gators would add to more runs of insurance in the 9th to put the game out of reach, 8-4. The series loss drops Miami to 6-5 on the year ahead of ACC play next weekend.

Georgia Tech (7-3) Loses Series to Georgia

Game 1: UGA led 9-3 midway through 5th when suspended due to rain

Game 2: UGA 3-1

Game 3: UGA 11-9

The game on Friday was suspended due to rain, so the stats from that game will not count until its made up at some point in the future. On Saturday, Aeden Finateri was fantastic yet again as he hurled six one run innings to keep the Bull Dogs at bay, but unfortunately, the Jackets were unable to muster any run support in the 3-1 loss.

Logan McGuire put in a good shift on the mound during the Sunday finale, but the bullpen couldn't keep the lead as Georgia Tech dropped the game and the series to their in-state rival. The Jackets led 9-3 after 6, but Georgia scored 5 in the 7th and 3 in the 9th to stun Georgia Tech, 11-9.

Florida St (10-0) Sweeps First Pitch Invitational

Game 1: FSU defeats Michigan State, 11

Game 2: FSU defeats Illinois, 13-7

Game 3: FSU defeats Western Michigan, 8-3

Jamie Arnold started against a team that had run ruled Georgia midweek and Western Michigan earlier that day, but it was no problem for the sophomore left hander. Arnold went 6 shutout innings again and is now 3-0 on the year with a 0.00 ERA in 17 innings of work. He's struck out 21 versus just walking 2. Cam Smith and Jaime Ferrer would each homer in the game as the offense stayed hot enroute to an 11-2 win.

The second game of their double header on Saturday was against Illinois. Ace Cam Leiter looked human for the first time in a Seminole jersey and was chased from the game after just 4 innings. After allowing Illinois to erase a 7-0 deficit, Florida State loaded the bases in the 7th inning of a tie game. Alabama transfer Jaxon West doubled down the right field line to give them a lead they would not relinquish. They'd add four runs in the 7th and two in the 9th for a 13-7 win.

Florida State would trail for just two innings over the weeken when Western Michigan jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the opening frames on Sunday. But Daniel Cantu would double left center to drive in Max Williams before Alex Lodise drove in Cantu on a sacrifice fly to tie it at 2-2 in the 2nd. The Seminoles would take the lead in the third with a Max Williams RBI triple to make it 3-2. Lodise and Ferrer would each homer while catchers McGwire Holbrook and Jaxon West would add RBI singles in the 8-3 win. With the sweep, Florida State is the last undefeated team in the ACC.

#1 Wake Forest (10-1) Sweeps Weekend

Game 1: WF defeats Binghamton, 7-5

Game 2: WF defeats Binghamton, 9-8

Game 3: WF defeats Elon, 9-0

It wasn't the prettiest way to start off a doubleheader on Saturday, but Wake Forest won their first game against Binghamton, 7-5. The Deacs jumped out to a 6-0 lead thanks to three Austin Hawke home runs before some poor defense helped allow Binghamton back into the game. With the score 6-5 heading to the bottom of the 6th, Austin Hawke added to his big day with a solo shot to left to make it 7-5. That score would hold as the bullpen did their job the rest of the way.

The second game against Binghamton started about 45 minutes after the first and it was even more difficult for Wake Forest. Once again the Deacs blew a lead as Binghamton stormed back from 8-2 down after 7 innings to tie it 8-8 in the 9th. Cameron Gill, giving primary catcher Tate Ballestero a rest after he'd caught the earlier game, singled down the right field line with the bases loaded to walk off Binghamton and escape with the 9-8 victory.

With Michael Massey on the mound on Sunday, there were no scares for the #1 team in the nation. Massey went 5.2 shutout innings while striking out 9, while the 2-5 hitters in the lineup all homered. The Demon Deacons clinched the weekend sweep with the 9-0 win over Elon.

#15 Clemson (9-1) Clinches Palmetto Series

Game 1: CU 5-4

Game 2: CU 5-4

The weather on Friday meant the first matchup at South Carolina was postponed, so the series began on Saturday from a neutral Segra Park in Columbia. Tristan Smith was really good in his start, striking out nine Gamecock batters over his five innings. Clemson was up 4-1 in the 9th when pinch hitter Black Jackson hit an RBI triple to cut the deficit to 4-2. A few batters later, star outfielder Ethan Petry hit a two blast to tie the game and send it to extras. Garrett Gainey of South Carolina was excellent in extra innings, but it was his one mistake that shortstop Andrew Ciufo deposited into the left center field stands that allowed Clemson to walk it off in the bottom of the 12th.

On Sunday, the game was at Clemson as the Tigers hoped to clinch the series. Gamecock catcher hit a two run blast in the first inning to make it 2-0, but Will Taylor responded in the bottom half of the inning with his fourth home run of the week to get a run back. With the game tied 3-3 in the 6th, Nolan Nawrocki hit a solo shot to put Clemson ahead 4-3. Blake Wright would add insurance in the 8th with a solo home run of his own to make it 5-3. That insurance would prove essential as Ethan Petry hit a home run in the 9th inning for the second consecutive night, but Clemson was able to hold on to the 5-4 win.
