    ELON, N.C. - Eighth-ranked NC State fell 24-12 in the rain and cold on Tuesday night at Elon, despite two homers from sophomore Trea Turner.

    The Wolfpack (10-2) dropped its first contest since opening day, snapping a 10-game winning streak in the process. Turner finished with a 4-for-5 night including two home runs, a triple, five RBIs, three runs, and two stolen bases. The sophomore scored in the first inning to improve to 20-for-22 on scoring when reaching with less than two outs, but that number fell to 20-for-24 by the end of the game. Turner is now nine stolen bases away from tying the NC State career record.

    Elon (6-5) took a 3-1 lead at the end of one inning, and never looked back thanks to five runs in the second and nine more in the third. State dug itself an 18-3 hole by the end of the fourth, but chopped that lead down to 20-12 by the middle of the sixth. Elon added one in the bottom sixth and three in the eighth to pull away.

    Tarran Senay provided a 2-for-3 effort with two runs, two RBIs, a triple, and a double after coming off of the bench in the fourth. Brett Austin and Jake Armstrong added two RBIs each. Austin had a double and Armstrong knocked the second triple of his career in the losing effort.

    The Pack blew through eight pitchers on the evening, but starter Anthony Tzamtzis (0-1) took the loss in an inning of work. Of the other seven Wolfpack pitchers that appeared, none lasted more than 1 2/3 innings. Elon reliever John Antonelli (1-0) scored the win by holding the Wolfpack to one hit in the eighth.

    NC State returns to action on Wednesday, hosting Campbell at noon. Fans can follow along on Twitter via @NCStateBaseball, with live stats on, or over the airwaves on 88.1 WKNC. Streaming video of Wednesday’s game will be provided by GoPack All-Access.
