Since dropping their opening day game to Canisius, 6th ranked Wolfpack Baseball has gone on a 7 game win streak to push their record to 7-1 on the year, including a midweek victory this past week over Davidson by a final of 7-5.
RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State’s Chance Shepard unloaded a fourth-inning grand slam, the first home run of his career, to propel the sixth-ranked Wolfpack to a 7-5 win over Davidson on Tuesday at Doak Field at Dail Park.
Shepard’s slam provided the brunt of a five-run inning the Pack (7-1) used to string together its seventh win in a row, with all seven coming in the last nine days. The sophomore designated hitter finished 1-for-4 with four RBIs and a run scored.
The top seven batters in the Wolfpack order scored exactly one time in the win. Jake Fincher drove in a pair in a 2-for-4 night with a double and a run scored. Trea Turner went 2-for-5 with a run and a double, his first extra-base hit of the year. Bubby Riley went 2-for-5 with a run. Andrew Knizner went 2-for-3.
