    RALEIGH, N.C. - The 10th-ranked Wolfpack downed New Mexico State 8-3, Thursday at Doak Field at Dail Park, to extend its current winning streak to seven straight.

    The Pack (7-1) jumped ahead 3-0 through two innings, but found itself in a 3-3 tie heading into the bottom of the fifth. NC State rallied for two in that inning, and another three in the seventh to drop NMSU (3-6).

    Grant Clyde continued hitting it all over the park, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run, and an RBI. This week, Clyde is 6-for-12 at the plate with two homers, two doubles, and three runs.

    Jake Fincher went 2-for-5 with two RBIs, a double, and a run scored. Trea Turner smashed his third homer of the year in a 2-for-4 outing including a double, scoring both times he reached. Brett Williams submitted a 2-for-4 day with a double. Williams has reached base in 17 of his last 22 plate appearances.

    Pack reliever Andrew Woeck (1-0) captured the win in 2 1/3 shutout innings, holding the Aggies to three hits. Starter Brad Stone lasted 3 2/3, allowing three earned on two hits. Grant Sasser and Ryan Wilkins combined to finish the final three, limiting New Mexico State to one hit. Aggie starter Adam Mott (1-1) ended up saddled with the loss on five earned over the first 5 2/3.

    Turner led the game off with a double down the left field line. Williams legged out an infield single to put two on. A grounder to third pushed both into scoring position. Tarran Senay drove in the first run with a single through the right side, and Fincher pushed the next run home with a single to right. The Pack added its third run in the second thanks to a Williams grounder to short.

    New Mexico State tied the game in the top fourth, but the Wolfpack responded an inning later. Turner led off the inning by crushing a 2-1 pitch over the left field fence. Williams followed with a double, and scored two plays later on Senay’s sac fly. In the seventh, the Pack separated itself with three more. Fincher hit an RBI double into the right field corner and scored on Bryan Adametz’s single to left. Adametz represented the final run, scoring on Clyde’s double over the center fielder’s head.

    NC State heads to Myrtle Beach Friday for Coastal Carolina’s Baseball at the Beach tournament. Fans can follow along with all three of the Pack’s tournament games on 88.1 WKNC, @NCStateBaseball, or
