    RALEIGH, N.C. - No. 6 NC State baseball completed its sweep of Notre Dame on Sunday at Doak Field at Dail Park, blanking the Irish 7-0. Wolfpack pitchers combined to shut out Notre Dame for the last 21 innings of the series.  

    State (13-2, 3-0 ACC) broke through with four runs on one hit in the third, and added three more in the seventh to cruise past Notre Dame (5-9, 0-3) for the third game in a row.

    Sophomore Brad Stone (3-0) started and claimed the win on six innings of two-hit ball, striking out five while walking four. Stone retired 17 of 18 batters faced between the first and sixth, including 10 in a row. Eric Peterson worked the next two frames, holding the Irish to one hit with two punchouts. Jon Olczak slammed the door with one walk and two strikeouts in the ninth.

    Jake Fincher provided the sac fly RBI that opened scoring in the third, part of his 1-for-4 afternoon. Jake Armstrong went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs in the third to stretch the lead to 3-0. Carlos Rodon had a pinch-hit RBI single in the seventh during his only plate appearance. Brett Austin led off and turned in a 2-for-3 effort with two runs.

    Will Nance and John Mangum started the Pack's third-inning rally with a pair of walks. Austin reached on an error by the pitcher on a sac bunt attempt to load the bases with nobody out. Fincher's sac fly to right scored the first run. Trea Turner walked to reload the bases, and Bubby Riley drove in the next run on a chopper to first. Armstrong knocked a line drive single to left to make it 4-0, the Wolfpack's only hit of the inning.

    NC State departs Monday for a road trip to Florida. The Pack opens with a 6:30 date on Tuesday at Stetson, then travels to Tallahassee for a three-game series with the second-ranked Seminoles over the weekend.
