Pack Ends Drought, Omaha Bound!

After trailing Rice 4-1 in the ninth inning, NC State came back to tie the game on Jake Fincher’s double and took the lead for good in the top of the 17th when Brett Williams doubled in Taran Senay.  And with that, the Wolfpack punched their ticket to Omaha for the College World Series for the first time since 1968. Ethan Ogburn pitched the last 5 innings and got the win for the Pack, allowing three hits and no runs during that span.  And no, this correspondent was unable to stay awake for all of it, giving up during the rain delay and delaying his elation until checking the score this morning.

With the win, the Wolfpack awaits the result of the Chapel Hill Super Regional between UNC and South Carolina, currently deadlocked at 1-1.

    Congratulations to the Wolfpack. Let’s just hope they are not the only conference team going.

    • Well looks like Carolina made it in, although Virginia was not so fortunate. And, as mentioned already, future member Louisville will be there. One will fall in the next round as State faces UNC, but whatever happens, it has been a great season for ACC baseball.
