— NC State baseball dropped a 6-1 decision to No. 15 Clemson in its series opener at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Saturday.

Carlos Rodon (2-5) pitched all eight innings, striking out five and walking none while allowing six runs, three earned, on 11 hits. Rodon records his 379th career strikeout, pulling him within seven of tying Terry Harvey’s NC State career record of 386 set 1992-95. Rodon’s career innings pitched total climbs to 289 1/3, passing Michael Rogers for fifth all-time at NC State.

Preston Palmeiro pinch hit in the ninth and delivered a line drive to right to go 1-for-1. Kyle Cavanaugh drove in the lone Wolfpack RBI in a 1-for-3 effort. Bubby Riley scored the only run of the afternoon. Logan Ratledge, Andrew Knizner, and Jake Fincher contributed one hit each.

NC State took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on Cavanaugh’s RBI through the left side. Riley scored from third on the play after being hit by pitch as the leadoff, taking second on Ratledge’s sac bunt, and moving to third on a wild pitch.

Clemson answered with two runs in the bottom half to take a 2-1 lead. The Tigers extended that lead with one in the sixth and three more in the eighth, to set the final margin at 6-1.

    I thought NC State was a baseball school?

    Not even! Close!
    Left, right, left, right, left right! Sit down!

    The identity crisis for NC State athletics continues.

    State started the season ranked number 5 - and it has been down hill ever since - now UNRANKED.
    If you made reservations for Omaha this season, you might want to cancel them while you can - doubt State will be there. In fact, State MAY NOT even make the ACC baseball tournament in Greensboro at this rate!

    I'm surprised at how State's season is going so far with Rodon and Turner and other good players on the roster. The Heels are struggling as well, so no trash talk from me.

    Pack broke their 10 game losing streak by winning the Sunday game 8 - 2 as the Pack broke a 2 - 2 tie after 8 innings by scoring 6 runs in the top of the 9th inning. Head coach Elliott Avent was the third base coach for today's game - it marked the first time in five years that he has acted in that capacity.
