On Friday night it was ‘Mark Light Magic’, with a walk-off homer in extra innings for 11th-ranked Miami to take their first portion of the weekend series with 16th-ranked Duke. The final game on Saturday was a lopsided affair, the Hurricanes would blast three home runs out of the park, while taking down the Duke Blue Devils, 10-1, in front of a packed house for their regular season finale.

Junior Zach Levenson would get it started for Miami, when he turned in a grand slam for Miami in the third inning.

The Blue Devils would answer right back in the fourth inning with a run, but it would be their only one on Saturday.

Shortly after, LifeWallet athlete and junior, CJ Kayfus, would blast a solo shot and extend Miami’s lead to five at the bottom of the fourth.

Freshman Blake “Hollywood” Cyr would add a two-run homer in the seventh inning.

Cyr would extend his team leading home runs with his 16th, while pushing the Hurricanes’ season home run total to 106. That mark is tied for the second most in program history, joining the 2008 and 2010 teams.

Junior Carlos Perez and CJ Kayfus combined to tack on three runs with back-to-back doubles in the eighth inning, to cap off Miami’s 20th 10-run game of the regular season.

The Hurricanes’ bullpen would mirror their batters performance throughout Saturday’s game.

Right-handed pitchers and LifeWallet athlete Ronaldo Gallo, Carlos Lequerica, Alejandro Torres and LifeWallet athlete Andrew Walters held the Blue Devils to just one run on six hits. Gallo would throw for three scoreless innings to earn the win under his record.

Throughout the Hurricanes’ regular-season finale, Miami announced its team awards. LifeWallet athlete, Yohandy Morales, was named the Hurricanes Most Valuable Player of the Year.

LifeWallet athlete Andrew Walters earned the Ron Fraser Award for the second consecutive season, the award is presented to the Hurricanes pitcher of the year.

Torres would win the Bob Werner Award, which is given to the player who demonstrates the most qualities of a winner and good teammate.

Cyr was named as the team’s Rookie of the Year, he was also crowned the home run champion, while junior shortstop Dominic Pitelli won the Arnold Novins Fan Favorite Award.

Miami has won six consecutive series to end the regular season, they are locked in as a fourth-seed and will now set their focus on the upcoming ACC Baseball Championship, which begins Tuesday, May 23rd. The ACC Baseball Championship will take place at Durham Bulls Park in Durham, North Carolina.
