‘Special' Rodon Leads Wolfpack Past UNC
Aaron Fitt * Baseball America
With a dominant performance from ace lefthander Carlos Rodon and at least one hit from every player in the lineup, No. 6 North Carolina State set up a crucial rubber game on Sunday against No. 1 North Carolina. The Wolfpack won 7-3 on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd.

"We didn't play bad last night, but we played really well tonight," North Carolina State head coach Elliot Avent said.

Rodon was amped for the big game, sitting in the 90-94 mph range with his fastball and reaching back for 96 a couple times against North Carolina third baseman Colin Moran. Rodon scattered seven hits and gave up two earned runs (due to a Cody Stubbs home run given up by reliever Grant Sasser after Rodon left the game). Rodon walked four and struck out 10.

"Carlos Rodon was very, very special tonight. He didn't pitch as well as he did last weekend against Georgia Tech. But (he) pitched very, very well. And he kept a great hitting lineup at bay."
- N.C. State coach Elliott Avent
