No. 25 NC State hosts No. 22 Virginia Tech for a three-game series highlighted by a 1 p.m game Saturday televised on Fox Sports South. The series opener on Friday at 6:30 p.m., and the Sunday finale at 1 p.m. will both be streamed by ESPN3.
The Wolfpack (21-10, 5-7 ACC) swept the midweek with a 6-1 win at East Carolina and an 8-6 victory at home against Elon. The Pack will play its second home ACC series in a row after taking two of three from Maryland last weekend.
State will lean on the combination of Brett Austin, Trea Turner and Jake Fincher at the top of the order. Those three have batted in order in each of the last six games, since Turner's return from injury, hitting .357 and accounting for 18 of the Pack's 38 runs during that stretch.
Following Sunday's game, NC State players and coaches will shave their heads in a fundraising effort to support victims of childhood cancer. Fans can bid on the commemorative game jerseys the Wolfpack will wear during the game by visiting GoPack.com/shave.
In addition to ESPN3's streaming coverage and the televised game on FSS, fans can follow along with the action on Twitter via @NCStateBaseball, or with live stats on GoPack.com. Radio coverage for all three games will be provided by 88.1 WKNC.
