    RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State came out hot for the third straight game, scoring seven runs in the first two innings to take the series from Maryland with a 9-4 win Sunday at Doak Field at Dail Park.

    The Wolfpack (19-10, 5-7 ACC) torched the Terrapins (15-12, 4-8) for four runs in the first and another three in the second to take a 7-2 lead. The Pack added another two in the fourth to make it 9-2, before Maryland rallied with one in the fifth and another in the sixth to set the final at 9-4.

    Trea Turner started at shortstop for the second game in a row, finishing the day 3-for-4 with two runs, two RBIs, a walk and a stolen base. Turner's stolen base is his first since returning from his ankle injury, giving him nine for the year and 66 for his career. He's seven shy of tying Tom Sergio for the NC State career record.

    Brett Austin extended his hitting streak to seven games with a 2-for-5, two-RBI, one-run performance. Will Nance drew the start at designated hitter and responded by matching Austin's numbers. Jake Fincher and Brett Williams each scored twice with a pair of hits. Williams contributed an RBI and Fincher reached base in a game for the 28th time in 29 outings. Logan Ratledge and Sam Morgan both hit doubles. Eight of the Pack's nine starters had more than one hit in the contest.

    NC State starter Brad Stone (2-1) captured the victory on six innings. Stone struck out three Terrapins in a row at one point to finish with five strikeouts. The freshman allowed four earned runs on seven hits and two walks. Reliever Andrew Woeck turned in his second strong performance of the weekend, holding Maryland to two hits over the next two innings. Chris Overman shut the door with a one-hit ninth, including two strikeouts.

    Maryland starter Alex Robinson (0-2) took the loss in a short outing. The Terrapins utilized three more pitchers, who combined to surrender three earned over the last eight innings.

    Williams drew a leadoff walk to start the Wolfpack offense in the first. Fincher reached on a fielder's choice for the first out. Turner and Austin hit back-to-back singles to score the first run. Nance followed with an RBI single through the right side. Jake Armstrong hit a sac fly to make it 3-0. Morgan finished the deal with a two-out RBI double down the left field line.

    State came back with three in the second, ignited by Ratledge's leadoff double to left center. A wild pitch helped him to third, where Williams knocked him in while reaching on a fielding error. Fincher's bunt single put two on before a fielder's choice recorded the first out and left runners on the corners. Austin drove in Williams on a single to right, and Nance followed suit again with an RBI single to extend the lead to 7-2.

    A pair of infield singles by Williams and Fincher got the Pack going in the fourth. Turner drove in both with a double sprayed down the right field line to stretch the Wolfpack lead to 9-2. Maryland added one run in the fifth and another in the sixth before the State bullpen shut down the Terp offense for the final three innings.

    NC State returns to action on Tuesday, April 2, with a visit to East Carolina. Radio coverage for that game will be provided by 88.1 WKNC. Fans can also follow along with live stats on GoPack.com, or on Twitter via @NCStateBaseball.
