NC State 8 UNC 6

CARY, N.C. – After struggling offensively and losing four times in five games, NC State needed a morale boost and a character-builder. It got both Saturday in an 8-6 come-from-behind victory over North Carolina in the second game of a three-game Atlantic Coast Conference series at the USA Baseball Training Complex.

The Wolfpack, which improved to 15-9 overall and 5-6 in the ACC, carried a 2-2 tie into the bottom of the sixth inning, only to have the baseball gods conjure up a four-run inning for the Tar Heels on three hits, two walks, two wild pitches, a sacrifice bunt and a balk against starter Eric Surkamp and reliever Jake Buchanan. That gave North Carolina a 6-2 lead, but the Wolfpack rallied against the leading pitching staff in the conference, scoring three runs in the seventh and three more in the eighth to hand UNC only its second loss in its last 12 games.
