Backing The Pack has new update
1 day ago ACC Baseball Tournament - Tuesday Open Thread
Photo by Nicholas Faulkner/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Wolfpack play at 3:00pm The ACC Baseball Tournament kicks off today in Charlotte - you know, weather permitting and all that. As per the format, there will be three games each day for the next four days before the semifinals on Saturday and the championship game on Sunday. theacc.com Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, and UNC have all pretty much locked up their NCAA Regional bids, but NC State and Clemson are very much on the bubble, as Steven pointed out on Monday. While the Tigers and Wolfpack are both jockeying to not be the 11th ACC team in the pecking order, I can’t imagine any sane Wolfpack fan will be rooting against the Tigers today. The entire lineup of games is being broadcast on your local Regional Sports Network, and theoretically also on the ESPN app for those not in the area.

Tar Heel Blog has new update
2 days ago UNC Baseball: May 19-21 Weekend Recap
Photo by Eakin Howard/Getty Images The Tar Heels continued their good run with a sweep of FSU. North Carolina baseball’s May turnaround has been fairly remarkable, seeing them go from just a couple games over .500 and well out of the NCAA Tournament discussion to (hopefully) the right side of the postseason bubble. Over the weekend, UNC had one last chance to end the season on a good note ahead of the ACC Tournament next weekend when they hosted Florida State. They succeeded wrapping up their regular season with a sweep of a good FSU team. Thursday: UNC 7, Florida State 5 The Heels didn’t waste time early, scoring four runs in the first inning. Danny Serretti drove home one with an RBI single, but the big blow came via Alberto Osuna’s three-run home run. After that, FSU slowly and surely fought their way back into the game. They got two runs on fourth inning home run, and UNC starter Max Carlson was knocked out an inning later after going 4.2 frames, having been solid prior to that. Florida State picked up another run in the sixth, but their big blow came when they scored two in the eighth, taking the lead and potentially dooming Carolina to a loss after they had been leading all game. However, the Tar Heels wouldn’t go down quietly. In the ninth, a Serrerri single and a crucial two-out Johnny Castagnozzi walk kept the game alive for Osuna, who delivered. #BoshMagic pic.twitter.com/qghokbgiNh— Carolina Baseball (@DiamondHeels) May 20, 2022 Osuna’s second three-run homer of the game gave the Heels a walk-off win. Friday: UNC 10, Florida State 4 Off the field, Friday was a big day as former Tar Heels’ coach Mike Fox saw his #30 retired in a pre-game ceremony. On the field, the team then delivered another win thanks to some more late inning runs. The teams traded two runs each in the first inning, with UNC’s coming on a Vance Honeycutt home run. After the Heels took the lead in the second, Osuna struck again with another home run in the fifth. While FSU would answer back with a couple runs, Carolina broke the game open, scoring six combined runs in the seventh and eighth inning. Serretti’s eighth inning grand slam gave UNC more than enough breathing room as they finished off the win. Carolina starting pitcher Brandon Schaeffer was solid, allowing three runs in 6.2 innings, while Angel Zarate had a three-hit day at the top of the Heels’ lineup. Saturday: UNC 11, Florida State 0 The series finale featured another ceremony, this one for Senior Day, and the Heels, and the team made sure they all went out with a win, as UNC crushed FSU to finish off the sweep. UNC basically led from wire to wire as Zarate led off the bottom of the first with a home run, as the team struck early and often to pick up an 11-0 win. Five different Heels recorded at least one RBI and only two starters didn’t reach base at least once. Mac Horvath led the way going 2-3 with a home run, a walk, and three RBI, while Serretti and Osuna wrapped up their big weekends by also driving home runs in the finale. As far as seniors go, pitchers Gage Gillian and Caden O’Brien each had perfect outings, coming with four other UNC pitchers to throw a shutout. Meanwhile, left fielder Mikey Madej had a hit and two walks. Next up for UNC is the ACC Tournament, which is set to start on Tuesday. The Heels will play Clemson in their opener, as they were also grouped with Virginia Tech in pool play.
Backing The Pack has new update
2 days ago NC State would be wise to win at least one game in Charlotte
Photo by Nicholas Faulkner/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images State has backed its way onto the bubble. Hello and welcome back to the bubble, everybody. Until the men’s basketball program can re-assume its peak as an are-they-or-aren’t-they-in-the-tournament program, we have the baseball team to fill in at least for this year. And what a relief that is, because I forgot what it’s like to feel this alive. The depth of the ACC is playing in the Wolfpack’s favor, helping to compensate what has been a rough slide over the last few weeks. D1Baseball has 11 ACC teams in its latest NCAA tournament projection—good news for a State team that slid all the way to 10th in the standings prior to the league tournament. Their last team in currently is Clemson, a team from which State took two of three back in the first week of April. NC State is first among their last four in—so the places could easily shuffle if the Tigers advance through pool play this week and State does not. And you do not want to be in a place to have to argue you should be the 11th ACC team in the field, because obviously. This is assuming the committee deems 10 teams worthy to begin with. The good news is that both Wake and Miami provide opportunities for top-15 RPI wins. Maybe getting one of those is enough. And NC State’s season sweep over an ECU team finishing on a heater is only looking better. But an 0-2 finish this week would create good reason for worry, depending on what happens elsewhere both inside and outside of the league. Just not a good idea in general and I don’t recommend it.
