Garner Magnet  1 #1 Wake Forest  6

Garner visited preseason #1 Wake Forest Tuesday afternoon.  Wake Forest came out hot in the beginning against NC State commit Jaxon Lucas after being upset by Clayton in their opener.  Wake Forest plated 1 run in the 1st off a single by UNC commit Luke Stevenson.  They followed it up with two in the third  on a triple by Ian Williams as they were in total control of the game through 4.    Jimmy Lovelace commanded the zone through 4 innings as he only gave up 1 hit.  Garner struck in the top of the 5th as Jaxon Lucas belted a solo shot to make the contest 3-1.  Cooper Allen led off the 4th with an opposite field solo shot off of Jordan Buffalo to take a 4-1 lead.  Ethan Brittain added a 2 run double in the 5th as Wake Forest took their home opener 6-1.
