    Default @ #3 Duke

    As things are shaping up in the ACC, this might be the marquee inter-divisional weekend ACC series of the year! Duke leads the Coastal and NC State leads the Atlantic. The winner of this series sets themselves a bit above the rest of the conference, though plenty of ranked conference foes remain for both teams.

    Go Pack!

    #2 NC State takes game one on the road at #3 Duke, 9-2!

    Ignore the polling as the latest Baseball America rankings I read has NC State at #2 and Duke at #3. But, there are several different polls in college baseball and that's why it shows NC State ranked #4 and Duke ranked #9.

    Regardless, it's nice to see the Wolfpack take the first game of the series. A win tomorrow would be a huge statement against one of the truly elite teams in the nation and the current leader of the ACC Coastal division.

    And on cue here is the game write up:

    Oh no!!! We won the 1rst game of a series???? That is not how this team rolls. We are suppose to lose and then win 2 straight like we have done the past 4 series right?? This cannot be good. The last time we won the 1rst game of series was over a month ago at Clemson. How did that turn out?? Ok, we swept the #2 team in Nation at their park the last time we won the 1rst game of a series so maybe it is good lol!!! We got a very good ball team playing on that patch of grass behind Sullivan and Lee. Go Pack!!!!!

    The Pack takes game two in a pitchers duel, 2-1. Brian Brown earns the win and NC State cliches the series and can go for a huge road sweep on Sunday!

    NC State took a 2-0 lead in the top of the sixth when Josh McClain belted a leadoff double followed by an RBI triple by Will Wilson. A sac fly completed the scoring for the Pack, but it was enough to win the game.

    In baseball streaks come to an end and our 8 game scoring 8 or more runs per game did just that today but we answered in a very positive way by getting the "W" anyway behind another great pitching performance by Brian Brown. Still some awesome streaks to keep alive like our current 5 game winning streak and our 10 straight ACC series wins dating back to last season. This team keeps finding ways to win and doing it on a consistent basis. Regardless of what happens tomorrow I think we will get serious consideration for the #1 spot Nationally in most of the polls (as Ken mentioned there are a lot of polls in college baseball) but with a win tomorrow we should crack that spot in some of them. Still a lot of baseball to play. Thanks to us Duke is no longer leading their division in the ACC. We just put the "holes" in 1rst place in the Coastal but we have next weekend as we face them in a home series to give Duke back the number 1 spot. Great historic season so far. Keep it going Pack!!!!

    Well, no brooms this time as Duke won game three 11-2. The Devils vaulted to a 4-0 lead after one, and scored six in fifth to put it out of reach 10-2.
