Tim Henry, Tom Hagan, Jeremy Farrell, Brandon Guyer and Brandon Marsh each had one hit for the Cavaliers, who fell to 24-6 and 6-4 in the ACC.

The Wolfpack loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the fifth on a single, a Virginia error and a walk. Corona singled to left field putting NC State ahead, 4-2. The Wolfpack tacked on two more runs when Ryan Pond reached on a two-base error with a draw-in infield which allowed Corona and Aaron Bates to score to make it, 6-2. RBI singles from Brian Aragon, Matt Camp and a run scoring double from Matt Mangini gave NC State a 9-2 lead after six innings.
The Wolfpack extended its lead to 10-2 in the bottom of the sixth when Still grounded out to score Corona.
Virginia pushed across the first two runs of the game in the top of the fourth. Brandon Guyer reached on an error and stole second. Tom Hagan's RBI single through the right side gave the Hoos a 1-0 lead.
