DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - K.J. Bryant scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the top of the ninth as Clemson earned a berth in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game by beating Wake Forest 5-4 on Saturday.

Mike Triller and Chase Pinder homered in the seventh for the sixth-seeded Tigers (41-18), who finished pool play 3-0 and will play the Miami-Florida State winner on Sunday morning for the title.

ACC player of the year Seth Beer was hit by Parker Dunshee’s pitch with one out in the ninth and advanced to third on Chris Okey’s double to left-center.

Bryant pinch-ran for Beer and scored two batters later on Dunshee’s wild pitch.

Pat Krall (10-1) worked a perfect ninth to seal it for Clemson.

Ben Breazeale hit a two-run double during a three-run fourth inning that gave the 10th-seeded Demon Deacons (34-25) a 4-1 lead.
