Wolfpack Baseball found themselves in yet another extra-inning affair with ACC Championship implications on Friday night. Two years ago State fell 2-

Wufpacker, here is the video of the play:05/23/2015 at 1:09 AM #86457ruffles31Keymaster
Great comeback win. Crowd was awesome.
It will be interesting to see how Avent handles the staff for tomorrow’s game. Does he start Piedmonte or start him on Sunday?
Would he pitch some of the guys who haven’t thrown as many innings this year, such as Williamson and Stone, and keep Gilbert, Olczak, Orwig, Britt, and DeJuneas ready for Sunday?05/23/2015 at 1:11 AM #86458
^ Sweetness!! I hadn’t seen the replay until now. GoPack only just put their write-up up and I had just added it, but hadn’t yet added the vid. Glad you already did 🙂
Fun Game, to say the least.05/23/2015 at 1:30 AM #86459MrPlywoodParticipant
Cool vid 🙂05/23/2015 at 1:35 AM #86460
And after seeing it on replay, I’m even more concerned that Palmeiro might need tomorrow off. Those dudes might as well have given him the piledriver. Yikes.05/23/2015 at 7:44 AM #86463BJD95Keymaster
I had to drive a kid to a sleepover last night (in f-ing FUQUAY, no less). When I left my house, I had flipped to fast-pitch Lady Pack anyway, in hopes of being cheered up (since my Cardinals were also getting shelled, and Lance Lynn looked hurt to me). It was working, early 1-0 lead!
So, I drive 25 minutes to BFE, and get pulled over on the way back, because of course I do. I am dead honest with the cop when he asks me if I know why he pulled me over “I was driving too fast” and if I had any reason “No, I just dropped my kid off at a sleepover, I’m tired, and started going too fast trying to get home.”
Saving grace for the day – cop was super nice, and doesn’t give me a ticket. Maybe because I at least answered his questions honestly, and wasn’t drunk. Then I get home, just in time to see the Ducks pound us for a 4-spot. I’ve heard no encouraging news from Durham, so I don’t even bother checking. I just futz around online for 10 minutes and go to bed.
NICE SURPRISE, Pack 9! I will see you for Pack 9 appreciation night in about 11 hours, since I am the gracious recipient of Wuf’s extra ticket!!05/23/2015 at 9:20 AM #86466charger17Participant
If you went to bed early, you missed a great game. My brother’s family and my family all ended up at my parents house to watch (we’re in TN). You could feel we still had something in us, but after chances in the 9th and 10th, I thought we might be falling behind a little.
The adults in the room were acting like a kid on Christmas morning when we saw home umps arms fly out to the sides. What a game, what a win. Go Pack!05/23/2015 at 9:51 AM #86468BJD95Keymaster
Raffy’s progeny wins it on a Little League HR. TOO MUCH FUN.
Don’t worry, I won’t risk my Charlie Brown jinx factor by attending the finale, just tonight’s scrimmage.
For a sense of how HUGE it would be to get the monkey off our back Sunday…has anyone calculated what our wolven record is in conference finals (combined) since our last “Big Three” sports championship? My brain says the goose egg streak has to be at least 12, right?05/23/2015 at 9:54 AM #86469TheCOWDOGModerator
I admit to quiting when Avent refused to sac in the 8th. Pinch hitting for Fincher caused an apoplectic seizure, for good measure.
I absolutely love how these kids overcome so many hurdles placed in their path.
Tonight will be a nice night out. See ya at Tobacco Road.05/23/2015 at 10:41 AM #86471Fastback68Participant
Thanks for the video. I’ve watched it 20x. That type of celebration has been missing for a long time. Sheer joy displayed by players and fans. Win out boys and girls.05/23/2015 at 11:25 AM #86476

Dunno. Too long is all I know.
For tonight, fans can relax and enjoy an nice night out. Sunday, battle armor.
Off to the demon’s lair. Hope to emerge at least in time to make first pitch, Tobacco Road would be a bonus of gargantuan proportions, but am aiming for it.05/23/2015 at 11:52 AM #86478DogbreathParticipant
College baseball for me is easily my second favorite sport to watch behind football. NCAA basketball has become such a garbage game that’s it’s no longer even a close comparison. And college baseball is WAAAYYY better than MLB. Every at bat has me on the edge of my seat, there is much more strategy involved all over the field than in the MLB.
I can easily see college baseball becoming a pretty lucrative television deal in the coming years.05/23/2015 at 12:50 PM #86479tjfoose1Participant
I’ll be there Sunday doing my part. Saving another Moon pic for tmrw morning too.05/23/2015 at 1:52 PM #86480Pack78Participant
Looking like we will get the Noles on Sunday; currently leading the Ville 6-0 in the 8th…05/23/2015 at 2:25 PM #86481PackerInRussiaParticipant
Man oh man. Just finished watching the replay. What a way to win. I remember getting a homerun like that in fifth grade. Shouldn’t have needed it if that play had been called safe at home in the earlier inning. He would have scored on the later hit. At least the good guys won in the end. That Caps For Sale rally cap was epic.
