Canes win series with Wake Forest

The Hurricanes' offense is on fire. Whether it’s playing small ball, belting home runs, or ball placement, they’re just taking advantage of opposing pitchers. Sure, certain players are hot – David Thompson is scorching – but this has been a collective effort.

Unfortunately for Wake Forest, they were the victim of Miami's latest assault on the scoreboards. In game one, as the first inning unfolded, David Thompson didn't hesitate to answer whether his prolific batting numbers would follow him to Winston-Salem or not. Thompson dished out an RBI double, and in his second trip to the plate, belted a grand slam, placing Miami's lead far from reach and setting the tone for the series.

Here are results and game notes from the series:
