    RALEIGH, N.C. - No. 19 NC State extended its winning streak to seven games by edging East Carolina 2-0 on Tuesday night at Doak Field at Dail Park.

    The Wolfpack (25-10) scored both runs on a two-out single by Tarran Senay in the bottom of the sixth. East Carolina (15-18) only reached third base once on the evening, but had runners on first and second with one out in the ninth before Grant Sasser shut the door on the Pack victory.

    A record crowd of 2,951 filled Doak Field at Dail Park, representing the largest crowd ever to take in a midweek game at NC State.

    Senay finished the game 1-for-3 with a pair of RBIs, marking the 10th straight game he has recorded a hit. Trea Turner went 1-for-4 and stole two bases to pull within three of tying Tom Sergio for the NC State career record. Jake Fincher went 0-for-2 but scored a run, extending his reached base total to 34 out of 35 games. Brett Williams scored once in a 1-for-3 day, the sixth consecutive game that he has scored at least one run.

    NC State starter Karl Keglovits went a career-best 4 2/3 innings, holding the Pirates to two hits while striking out one. Andrew Woeck (3-1) scored the win over 1 2/3 innings of one-hit ball as the first reliever out of the Wolfpack bullpen. Travis Orwig struck out one in 2/3 of an inning. Josh Easley pitched a one-hit eighth. Grant Sasser picked up his third save of the year by holding the Pirates to one hit in the ninth. All five Wolfpack pitchers recorded exactly one strikeout.

    ECU starter Nick Durazo (0-3) took the loss on two runs, one earned, on two hits over five innings. Reliever Brett Mabry held the Pack to one hit and fanned four over the final three frames.

    The Pack won the game in the bottom of the sixth inning, producing the only offense either side could muster all night. Williams led off by getting hit by a pitch, and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Fincher walked behind him. Mabry struck out the next two batters, but a passed ball allowed both runners into scoring position. Senay did the rest, dropping a two-RBI single in between the converging fielders in left center for the game-winning hit.

    NC State returns to action on Friday at Boston College for the first of a three-game series. Radio coverage will be provided by 88.1 WKNC. Fans can also follow along with live stats on or on Twitter via @NCStateBaseball.
