The Demon Deacons (23-16, 10-9 ACC) out-hit the Wolfpack (30-9, 12-7 ACC), 11-7, also drawing nine walks.

After Wake Forest had potential rallies thwarted by double plays the first two innings, the Deacs mounted a two-out rally in the third.

Chris Lanzilli (2-for-3, 2 walks) started it off with a solo homer, his 10th of the year to tie for the team lead. Three-straight singles from Bobby Seymour (2-for-4, 2 RBIs, walk), Brendan Tinsman and Michael Ludowig (3-for-3, double, walk) and an NC State error brought in two runs, making the score 3-0.

Seymour, the ACC's RBI leader, collected his 54th and 55th runs batted in of the season with a two-run single in the sixth to increase the advantage to 6-1.
