NC State Baseball SWEEPS Ranked UNC


In what was deemed coming into Friday as at least a “must win series”, State baseball came out and took care of business, sweeping the three games. The series took so long, that by the end UNC was no longer ranked. HAHA!

FRIDAY – W 9-2

Reid Johnston went the distance, picking up his second win of the season. Allowing only 7 hits and 2 ER, Johnston was in control the entirety of the game. While UNC committed three errors, State was clean, including this grab out in left.


On the offensive side, State was raking…Grand…Salami…


And a no doubter…



Sam Highfill started and went 7 innings, giving up 5 hits, 1 ER and 4 strikeouts. Matt Willadsen came in for the final two frames with a clean sheet (follow along for something really awesome).


The bats continued to stay hot, with 8 Pack players getting hits, half of them getting multiple. Then these dingers…




Remember the follow along from two seconds ago? Matt Willadsen pitches the final two, and with just a 40 minute break, just keeps it going starting Game 3 AND GOING 7.1 INNINGS! It wasn’t perfect (7 Hits, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO), but to go 9 in one day, for basically State’s second complete game of the weekend, is amazing.

Back to the dingers…


A wild week and the boys come all the way back for a much needed SWEEP.


State bumped up one spot in the ACC Atlantic, and will hope to jump Wake Forest this week. State plays in Greensboro today (versus UNCG), before returning home to face Clemson Friday through Saturday at Doak.



Passionate State fan that just wants to anything...
