    RALEIGH, N.C. - Ethan Ogburn's quick work on the mound Friday night led No. 5 NC State to a 5-1 victory over Presbyterian in the first of a three-game weekend set at Doak Field at Dail Park.

    NC State (35-11) won for the 17th time in the last 18 games behind Ogburn's eight-inning masterpiece that saw the righty throw just 83 pitches. He allowed one hit, a lead-off single in the fifth, one unearned run and struck out three in a game that took just 2:03 - the fastest game of the 2013 season.

    Brett Austin's second home run of the season staked the Wolfpack to a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning. With two down in the frame, the Wolfpack catcher blasted a solo shot to left-center field for his second career homer.

    Presbyterian (23-23) tied the game 1-1 in the fifth. Cam McRae led off with a line-drive single to left that slipped under the glove of NC State's left fielder, allowing McRae to race all the way to third base. Nathan Chong followed with a ground out to Turner to get the run across. McRae ended up being the last base runner of the evening for the Blue Hose.

    Ogburn set down the final 12 hitters he faced, and Brad Stone struck out the side in the ninth to preserve the Wolfpack win. Ogburn retired 22 of the last 23 batters he faced.

    Up 1-0, NC State tacked on two runs with two outs in the fifth. Logan Ratledge walked and stole second. Turner also took a free pass, bringing Jake Fincher to the plate. He followed with a single through the right side that scored Ratledge. With Austin back at the plate, Fincher got caught in a rundown on an attempted steal, but Blue Hose starter Beau Dees made an errant throw to first that allowed Turner to score, giving the Pack a 3-1 advantage.

    Bryan Adametz made it 5-1 with a two RBI single in the sixth after Grant Clyde and Brett Williams opened the inning with base hits. Clyde went 2-for-3 to lead the offense that mustered six hits, five walks and reached on four Presbyterian errors.

    Dees (5-5) picks up the loss, allowing six hits and five runs (four earned) over 5.1 innings. He walked five and did not strike out a batter.

    Game two begins Saturday at 6:30 p.m., on ESPN3. Radio coverage will be provided by 88.1 WKNC. Fans can also follow along with live stats on, or on Twitter via @NCStateBaseball.
