NC State defeats Clemson 6-3 in ACC tourney

Posted May 22, 2013

Two two-RBI doubles in the seventh inning lifted No. 4 NC State to a 6-3 victory over No. 5 Clemson Wednesday in the Wolfpack's first game in the ACC Tournament pool play. 

Jake Fincher and Brett Austin each drove in a pair with extra base hits to left field in the seventh to break a 2-2 tie and give the Wolfpack the lead they did not relinquish. Clemson starter Daniel Gossett allowed the four runs in the seventh before being pulled for Patrick Andrews. Andrews finished the inning without any further damage.

A solo homerun by Garrett Boulware in the top of the ninth silenced many in the mainly red-clad crowd, but it was be enough for a comeback.

Clemson jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the second after Shane Kennedy singled to first, then stole second and third base to put him in scoring position. NC State starter Brad Stone struck out Tyler Krieger for the second out of the inning, but a wild pitch allowed Kennedy to take home. 

It didn't take long for the Wolfpack to even the score as Grant Clyde launched a ball over the Blue Monster in left field for a homerun in the next half inning.

In the bottom of the third, Jake Armstrong scored on a fielding error following Austin's infield single to give NC State a 2-1 lead.

After a shaky second inning for the Pack in the field, the team turned it around to make several close outs in the third and fourth innings to keep the Tigers from off the board. 

With bases loaded and no outs in the top of the sixth inning, NC State opted to pull Stone for Josh Easley. Boulware promptly grounded out into a double play allowing Maleeke Gibson to score to even the game at two. With Grant Sasser warming up in the bullpen, Easley stayed in and struck out Kennedy to end the inning. 

In five innings, Stone surrendered two runs on six hits with one earned. He walked one and recorded three strikeouts. Easley earned the win with two hits, one run allowed and three strikeouts in four innings of relief. 

The Wolfpack's next game is Friday at 11 a.m. against No. 8 Miami. Saturday at 7 p.m. NC State wraps up pool play against No. 1 overall seed North Carolina. The championship game is Sunday at 1 p.m.

    One win to their credit so far and I hope the PACK is FOCUSED for the next one....the Miami game on Friday is a 'sandwich' game -- after the Clemson win and a day before the UNC game. Hopefully there will be NO letdown and the team will remain focused on Miami.....but.....?

    Only time will tell....que serea, sera.

    He could have played both, but a win is a win, so it's moot now.

    Great game by the pack. They'll save Rodon for the holes on Saturday, like I said they would.
