Super Regional: NC State outslugs Georgia to reach MCWS

nc state baseball

Eli Serrano III and Alex Sosa each amassed three hits, including a homer, while leading No. 10 North Carolina State to an 8-5 win over No. 7 Georgia on Monday to earn a berth in the Men’s College World Series.

The game was the finale of the best-of-three Athens (Ga.) Super Regional. The MCWS, which begins on Friday in Omaha, Neb., will feature a field of four Atlantic Coast Conference teams and four Southeastern Conference teams.

Garrett Pennington and Alec Makarewicz also went deep for the Wolfpack (38-21), who are headed to the MCWS for the fourth time. NC State will appear in the MCWS for the first time since 2021.

Wolfpack starting pitcher Logan Whitaker struck out seven while throwing 4 1/3 innings of two-run ball. He allowed four hits and one walk. Jacob Dudan (4-2) got the win in relief, and Derrick Smith fired three innings of one-run ball for his eighth save.

Tre Phelps hit a two-run homer among his three hits and Charlie Condon also hit a home run for the Bulldogs (43-17). Georgia starting pitcher Zach Harris (5-2) was tagged for three runs on eight hits and no walks in three-plus innings. He fanned three.

Phelps’ blast opened the scoring in the second inning, but Pennington’s two-run shot in the third tied the game. NC State went ahead for good when Matt Heavner scored on a passed ball in the fourth, and Makarewicz added an RBI single later in the inning for a 4-2 edge.

The Wolfpack maintained their edge thanks to the homers by Serrano (sixth inning), Sosa (seventh) and Makarewicz (eighth).
