State Picks Up Crucial Win Against Clemson

May 26, 2010

State likely needed at least one win in the ACC Tournament to improve its chances to make the NCAA Tournament. They got a signature one over 2-seed Clemson, 13-8.

NC State used the short ball Wednesday night to down Clemson 13-8 in its first round game at the ACC Baseball Championship.

Sure the Wolfpack hit two more home runs – upping its season total to 92 – but it was five consecutive two-out singles in the top of the sixth inning that allowed Elliott Avent’s squad to break open a back-and-forth game and secure the win for surprise starter Alex Sogard.

State now gets a day off and will face Georgia Tech on Friday.
