Friday's Game Cancelled, Doubleheader Saturday at Noon
April 11, 2013
SCHEDULING NOTE: Friday's game has been cancelled due to rain. A doubleheader has been scheduled to begin at noon, Saturday. The following release has been edited to reflect that change.
No. 19 NC State puts its seven-game win streak on the line in a three-game series at Boston College beginning with a doubleheader, Saturday at noon.
The Wolfpack has won nine of its last 10 contests, and is coming off a sweep of Virginia Tech last weekend. In 2012, State took two of three from Boston College in Raleigh. The Pack leads the all-time series with BC, 16-6.
Chris Overman has an opportunity to set a new career record if he can hold opponents scoreless over his next 3 1/3 innings. Overman is chasing down an 18 2/3 inning scoreless streak he had snapped last season. He's gone 15 1/3 without allowing a run stretching back to the last inning he threw in 2012.
Trea Turner could come home as the new NC State stolen base king. Turner needs three stolen bases to tie Tom Sergio's NC State career record of 73, set 1994-97.
Radio coverage for the weekend will be provided by 88.1 WKNC. Fans can also follow along on Twitter via @NCStateBaseball, or with live stats on GoPack.com.
