Clemson pitcher Jacob Hennessy came up big for the Tigers on Friday.
With Clemson playing for its postseason life, the junior matched his career-best by pitching 7 1/3 innings in the Tigers’ 10-9 victory over Wake Forest at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson.
The win allowed Clemson (33-22, 15-14 ACC) to clinch the series and gives the Tigers’ an opportunity to sweep the Demon Deacons on Saturday with a win in Game 3 of the weekend series.
Hennessy allowed just two runs off six hits, while striking out seven and walking one to improve to 4-1 on the season. It was by far the best outing of the season for the lefty.
Clemson’s Michael Green was 4-for-5 with 3 RBIs in the win, while catcher Kyle Wilkie had two hits and drove in one run as well.
