NC State is in the NCAA baseball tournament and now the hard part begins—y’know, that whole winning on the road thing. Kentucky is regional’s No. 1 seed and host, while Indiana is the two-seed, the Wolfpack is the three-seed, and Ohio is the four-seed. NC State opens with Indiana at 7 p.m. ET on Friday night.
Indiana is 33-22-2 (yep, two ties!) on the season and has a win over Louisville to its credit. The Hoosiers also have taken series from Maryland and Hawaii, which are the other opponents they share in common with the Pack.
Kentucky is 39-20 and finished third overall in the SEC this season. The Wildcats beat Indiana during the regular season and also opened up the year by being swept in Chapel Hill by UNC.
Ohio is 30-26 and won four straight in the MAC tourney to earn its bid. The Bobcats probably aren’t long for this regional.
