RALEIGH, N.C. - - Tim Henry hit his first career home run in the top of the eighth, but No. 17 NC State completed the series sweep of No. 14 Virginia, 8-1, Sunday afternoon at Doak Field at Dail Park in the Atlantic Coast Conference series finale. Freshman second baseman David Adams led Virginia (24-8, 6-6 ACC) at the plate going 3-for-4. Eryk McConnell held UVa to one run in eight innings and struck out six for the Wolfpack (25-8, 8-4 ACC).
"Each weekend in this conference is going to be difficult with the great talent that all the teams have," UVa head baseball coach Brian O'Connor said. "NC State plays really well in front of their home crowd, which created a good environment for an opposing team. We have to be able to stay focused and play our style of baseball. It's tough to be perfect in this game; but we have to limit mistakes on the road, in order to give ourselves a chance to win."
Brandon Marsh, Sean Doolittle and Jeremy Farrell each had one hit for the Cavaliers. Ramon Corona led NC State going 2-for-4 with one run scored. Mike Ballard (4-2) suffered only his second loss of the season as he allowed five runs, two earned in three innings and walked three. Shooter Hunt pitched three innings in relief while Josh Myers and Alex Smith combined to pitch the final two innings.
Henry's first career home run put Virginia on the scoreboard in the top of the eighth pulling the Hoos within, 8-1.
NC State put up the game's first run on the board in bottom of the first when Matt Camp scored from third base on a Virginia throwing error giving the Wolfpack a 1-0 lead. The Wolfpack scored three more runs in the bottom of the second. Ryan Pond doubled down the right field line and scored on Camp's RBI single giving NC State a 2-0 lead. A two base error by the Cavaliers allowed two more runs to score as NC State led, 4-0.
The Wolfpack made it 5-0 in the bottom of the third. Matt Mangini's solo home run in the bottom of the fourth put NC State ahead, 6-0. Brain Aragon hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth giving the Wolfpack them, 8-0 lead. . Virginia returns to action Wednesday when the Cavaliers travel to Richmond for a 3 p.m. first-pitch.
