PREGAME: North Carolina State University will face the UCLA Bruins Tuesday at 8 p.m. on ESPN2 at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb.

UCLA (45-17, 21-9) defeated the No. 4 seed LSU Tigers, 2-1 Sunday to advance in the College World Series winner's bracket. The Bruins’ ace Adam Plutko tossed a seven-inning gem and held the Tigers to four hits. UCLA made most of LSU’s errors and scored the game-winning unearned run in the eighth.

Wolfpack ace Carlos Rodon threw a complete-game, five-hitter in only 108 pitches to lead his team past North Carolina, 8-1, Sunday night. NC State’s bats started out strong by producing five runs in the first three innings.

UCLA will throw junior right-hander Nick Vander Tuig Tuesday. The 6-foot-3 right-hander had a 12-4 record in 17 starts. Vander Tuig boasted a 2.37 ERA in 114 innings and led the team in strikeouts with 81 and only walked 17. He was drafted in the sixth round by the San Francisco Giants in the 2013 MLB First Year Player Draft this month.

NC State (50-14, 19-10) will counter with sophomore Logan Jernigan. The 6-foot-3 right-hander has a .187 opponent batting average and a 1-0 record in 10 appearances this season. The sophomore threw 30.1 innings with an ERA of 1.19.

UCLA is tied for eighth in the nation in ERA, 2.66, tied for fifth in fielding percentage, .980, and fourth in WHIP, 1.09. The Bruins only have 19 home runs in 2018 AB’s, a .250 batting average and a .332 slugging percentage.

The Wolfpack ranks 18th in the nation in stolen bases, 108, 13th in WHIP, 1.18, and 12th in doubles, 127. NC State is 32-4 in their last 36 games and has not committed an error in the last three games.

Tonight's loser will face UNC Thursday at 8 p.m. Tonight's winner will play the winner of Thursday's game Friday at 8 p.m. ET.

    Well, State has to do one to accomplish the other: they can't win the CWS without beating Carolina first. I can't see them starting anyone other than Rodon, who gives them their best chance, hands down.

  • baldchip Jun 19, 10:55 a.m.

    Thurday's game could be a classic!! May the best team win.

    GO PACK!!

    I think we'll see Thursday what NC States real priority is. Are they really set on winning the CWS or is eliminating UNCch enough. Should be interesting

  • Tarheel7074 Jun 19, 9:45 a.m.

    At this point, this is a win-win for UNC and NCSU and their respective institutions! As a native of NC, I am proud of both teams. GO HEELS!

    ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THE SEASON SERIES IS TIED AT 3-3 NOW THIS IS GAME 7 BETWEEN UNC AND NC STATE THIS IS WHERE LEGENDS ARE BORN GO HEELS!

    Ok, so....

    The balance of anything of remote relevance athletically in any sport over the past 30 years at Cow College comes down to a game vs UNC on Thursday. LOL Gotta love it.

    The newly proclaimed "Baseball School" in West Rawlee has seen not only its football and basketball teams fall into oblivion. Its bass fishing team can no longer compete either. I guess it is up to the small ball boys to try to do something of any remote type of relevance.

    Go Heels!

  • rduguyhere Jun 18, 11:47 p.m.

    I like our chances with or without Rodon pitching.

    State pitching Rodon on 3 days rest will finally hammer the point home that NC State cares more about trying to beat UNC than anything else. I hope the media gets all over Avent like they did Fox for piching decisions.

    That ball park needs to be modified to be fair to the hitters. It's too big for college... View More

    State has only 3 batters hitting over 300 in their lineup. I'd say you have a ways to go as a team before complaining about the dang ball park.
