    RALEIGH, N.C. - No. 6 NC State baseball responded from its second loss of the season with a 16-1 thrashing of Youngstown State on Sunday at Doak Field at Dail Park.

    The Pack's 16 runs are the most in a single game since an 18-0 trouncing of Wagner in 2013. State batted around in its five-run first inning, marking the sixth time this season the Wolfpack order has pulled the feat.

    Freshman Andrew Knizner led the Pack (9-2) with a 3-for-5, 3 RBI, 2 run performance that included his first collegiate home run, a two-run bomb in the bottom of the eighth. Bubby Riley contributed the Wolfpack's only other multi-hit effort, going 2-for-3 with three RBIs and two runs scored. Trea Turner scored three times in a 1-for-3 day with two RBIs.

    NC State managed to use 16 different position players and six pitchers in the ballgame. Brad Stone (2-0) recorded the win by shutting out the Penguins (1-7) for five innings on three hits, striking out four and walking none. Cory Wilder and Ryan Williamson made their collegiate debuts, combining to allow one earned over 1 2/3 innings. Andrew Woeck, Will Gilbert, and Jon Olczak also saw action.

    The Wolfpack wasted no time in opening up a sizeable lead on Youngstown State. The first four batters of the game drew walks to score the first run. Kyle Cavanaugh singled through the left side with one out to score the next two. Knizner and Logan Ratledge each added RBI singles to push the score to 5-0. The Pack never looked back, adding one in the third, and eight more in the fourth and fifth combined, before Youngstown answered with a single run in the seventh.

    NC State returns to action on Wednesday, March 5 to host North Carolina A&T. Streaming coverage of that contest will be available on ESPN3. Fans can also follow along with live stats from, or on Twitter by following @NCStateBaseball.
