NC State Sweeps CSU Bakersfield, Extends Winning Streak To 9

Game 1: NC State 8, Bakersfield 4
Game 2: NC State 2, Bakersfield 0
Game 3: NC State 10, Bakersfield 7

NC State did what it needed to do against Cal State Bakersfield over the weekend, as any loss to the Roadrunners would have gone down as a bad one from an RPI perspective. The Pack took the opportunity to rest ace starter Carlos Rodon, who has been worked extremely hard in league play by Eliott Avent, often throwing 110+ pitches during an outing.

State hasn't faced a team in the RPI top 25 since mid-April, which is a span of 11 games. Fortunately, State won nine of those 11 (it should be 10 of 12 after the mid-week game), and the team remains in excellent position to host a regional. With season-ending series against Virginia Tech and Florida State on the horizon, the Pack has an opportunity to pick up as many as six more top 50 wins. State currently ranks ninth nationally with 14 top 50 wins.
