    Default @ UNC

    Since the ACC Tournament starts next week, the concluding regular series tilts start Thursday vice Friday. For the Wolfpack, it means traveling to #13 UNC. The Pack has mostly struggled against other ranked teams. They split with Coastal Carolina, took two of three against then #1 Florida State, but were swept by then #13 Louisville.

    This is NC State’s chance to make late noise and make a statement to host an NCAA Regional!

    Go Pack!

    Pack lost game one 5-3. It had a 3-2 lead midway in the game but UNC came back to make it 4-3 and struck out two straight NC State hitters with the bases loaded to preserve that lead and increased it on a solo shot an inning later.

    The Wolfpack made a huge statement in game two, running over UNC 11-2!

    The runs came quick and frequent, as NC State rattled off three in the first, another three in the fourth, another three in the sixth, and for good measure added solo strikes in the fifth and seventh! In all, fourteen hits were pounded out. That combined with stout pitching as UNC dented the plate for the first time in the fifth and did not score again until the eighth, by which time the margin was ten runs.

    NC State has their chance to take this series on Sunday!

    Go Pack!

    Should have added that game three will be nationally broadcast on ESPN-U, with a start time of 16:30 eastern.

    The Wolfpack dominated game three, winning 11-0 and likely clinching the Pack a top 16 seed to host an NCAA Regional.

    It was also the first time since taking two of three from Florida State that the Pack was able to take a series from a nationally ranked opponent. The team may well have drawn inspiration from the Friday passing of their SID Bruce Winkworth, and the way the Pack stormed back to win games two and three in dominating fashion was very impressive. UNC had previously dominated on their home field.

    The ACC Tournament is up next.

    I believe this was the first road series win in Chapel Hill since 2004!
