Carlos Lopez, a 2008 all-area pick as Atlantic’s shortstop, is off to a hot start for Wake Forest.


Lopez, now a third baseman, leads the Atlantic Coast Conference with six homeruns and a .971 slugging percentage through 10 games. He is hitting .400 (tied for 15th in the ACC) and has 15 RBI (tied for seventh).

Wake Forest currently is 6-4 after opening conference play with three straight losses.
