NC State Loses Longest Game In ACC Tournament History

New, 13 comments

It took longer than usual, but NC State Shit finally made an appearance in grand style, as Georgia Tech stole home, the go-ahead run, and the game in the top of the 15th inning. Ethan Ogburn pitched well in relief, but with a man on third and two outs in the 15th, his windup took an eternity, the Tech runner broke for home, and the pitch was in the dirt. Stealing home doesn't get any easier.

NC State had numerous opportunities to win the game but stranded runner in scoring position after runner in scoring position, and before they were even able to get to that part, the bullpen lost the lead in the 8th inning. You know how we do.

State, Tech, Clemson, and Florida State are all 1-1 through two games. For the Pack to advance to the title game, they need FSU to beat Georgia Tech tomorrow and then they have to beat the Tigers on Saturday. It's doable, but their fate is no longer in their own hands.

A shame, though in the grand scheme it makes little difference. NC State will be in the NCAA tournament.
