We return the favor, albeit less threateningly. Top 2, 0-0

Toral K there was painfully predictable
No kidding. That inning was a microcosm of the last three games - shaky defense right out of the box, opportunities missed, etc. This feels bad already and it's 0 - 0. We had better get the lead against this guy or it could be a long night.

Why is Jenkins in the lineup? What has he shown to deserve so many shots?

Gil continues to make base running mistakes. He's NOT a threat to steal and has NO business getting picked off at 1st base!! #RallyKiller

He making solid contact while Crosbie is piling up strikeouts. I do agree that Teuro and Rivera should be playing. I'm not sure why other than shaky defense.

Mckenndry continues to shine with his inning ending 7th strikeout in the 4th.

Let's go boyz!!! Need some run support for this great outing on the mound.

Mckenndry has lost his control. Onviously getting tired, yet nobody warming up in the bullpen. Hung pitches to 5 straight batters. Killer 3 run homerun ball. Canes down 0-5 bottom of the 5th.

Kinda felt all night like that inning was eventually coming for NC State. Can’t keep running ourselves out of innings and expect to beat real baseball teams like this

See how NC State wastes no time getting the bullpen warmed up. One walk in the bottom of the 5th and there's a mound visit. If I have to criticize the coaching staff is that they wait too long to make a pitching change.

Toral is really struggling with pitch recognition. He's not making any contact on any curveballs. I'd tell him not to swing at the curveball, but right now it looks like a fastball to him. We really need his bat, but he's starting to slump a bit.
