The Chanticleers (21-7) moved to 5-0 against the ACC this season with wins against N.C. State, North Carolina, Clemson and Georgia Tech.
Michael Paez was 2 for 4 with an RBI and two runs scored. However, his biggest play came on defense.
In the bottom of the sixth with the game tied at 4 and the infield drawn in with a runner on third, Paez made a diving grab on a grounder up the middle and recovered to throw home to get Zach Piazza.
