    Default Clemson

    Last three home games of the regular season, and the Pack got off to a good start, beating Clemson 6-1 to open things up.

    NC State vaulted to a 4-0 lead after two, splitting two run apiece in each inning. They tallied their final two in the seventh before Clemson dented the plate for their only run in the top of the ninth.

    Game two has been advanced to a noon start to try to get the game in before inclement weather arrives in Raleigh.

    Pack dropped game two 4-3 in frustrating fashion. An inability to score from second on a sharp single to right field, resulting in the third out at the plate, combined with sloppy play at short in the top of the tenth, handed Clemson the winning margin. No error was charged on either play, but a sharp grounder to short was boxed, resulting in no throw to first, followed by a dropped throw to second on a subsequent stolen base attempt, led to another hit to short that the shortstop backtracked on and allowed to go past him without even getting a glove on it.

    It was charitable scoring to say the least that prevented three errors from being charged in the top of the tenth! Regardless, the winning run was gift wrapped for the Tigers.

    Baseball is primarily pitching and defense and in this one, the Pack's poor fielding lost them the game.

    Pack takes game three, and the series 8-3!

    NC State needs one more win for 40, and likely needs to win the UNC series on the road to earn a Regional hosting.
