For all you experts, betting is legal in NC now.

This team has been resilient as hell all year. They deserve our support. It's a series after all.

The real question is what pitching does UGA have left to throw at us? We have 4 really, really good options tomorrow. I like our chances.


Their starter from game 1 will be back

Really can't emphasize how big of a blunder the second inning was. Had runners on first and second with no outs and their bullpen was warming. Instead that scrub goes 6.2 and saves their pen.

Epidemic of pop ups today. Baseball is such a game of inches.

The Georgia dugout and a few fans that enjoy yelling at NC State are having a lot of fun this afternoon. Tomorrow will be interesting.

Our big 3 in Pennington, A-Mak, and Cozart need to show out big time tomorrow. Not going to win it if your stars are quiet, and as I am typing that Cozart goes yard - lol

When the P's off-speed stuff is working and he's throwing it for strikes it makes his fastball up faster.......can make you a gnat's ass behind. We were late getting the barrel of the bat to the ball on the high stuff which causes a lot of pop ups. I agree with Lefty we could have been more patient at the plate in the early innings......make him work some.

Yeah. And after the base running blunder on the short fly ball and then getting caught stealing we lost the opportunity to put just a little pressure on Finley. He was just too comfortable out there but that is baseball and every day is different especially at the college level.

In two games, the team wearing the black jerseys has won big.

I like Sosa as a prospect but it's been a tough year. Probably asked more of him than he /was ready for.
I don't get it. He seems to have a high strike out rate. Why not put Chase Nixon in that spot?

Chase batted .319 from the last side last year (.316 in conference) and is collecting splinters in his ass this year

This game was pretty much over when Cozart got thrown out at third. Poor decision by Jacob.

Yesterday we played a very sound fundamental game. One of the best games we played all year. Today we did not play with intelligence or patience and it burned us. Leighton couldn't throw strikes consistently but we went up there hacking away when we should have been taking pitches. We swing on 2-0 counts knowing we need base runners. We were behind but we could have made them work a little more.

Hopefully they can get the mojo back tomorrow.
Being an N. C. State fan builds great character!

It's Heavner that Chase needs to be in for. Move Luke back to second base. I really don't get why we have the lineup like this against a team that throws almost all righties.

We've put our best defensive lineup in the field. It's really not hard to understand. Whether it's the right thing to do or not, I don't know, but it has us one game from the CWS, so I doubt it changes.

I'm talking about putting a .300+ junior left handed batter at DH in place of a .200 left handed freshman all else equal with speed and power.

I think with Sosa's power you have to keep him in the lineup.

Chase Nixon isn't a .300+ hitter. Not sure where you're getting that from. It's not all else equal with power. They're looking for more pop in the bottom of the lineup.

Sosa has 5 home runs, slugging .381, OPS of .731
Nixon has 0 home runs, slugging .290 which is worst on the team, OPS of .693

It's funny I didn't see anyone saying we should switch up the lineup after scoring 18 runs yesterday and Heavner and Sosa were 2/11.

Switching out Chase Nixon for either of those guys isn't going to make or break our game tomorrow. It's going to be the top of the lineup if they perform or not as usual.

Sosa is definitely a work in progress, but he's shown tremendous upside. I like Chase a lot, but he can't change a game with one swing. The fact that Sosa can makes teams have to approach our lineup differently and his resurgence is one of the reasons we've been playing so well. We're a day removed from scoring 18 runs, I don't think we're going to see an overhaul of the lineup.

One game and everything on the line tomorrow & I like our chances.

"This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains." Think about that for a while.

Our guys just need to play loose tomorrow. Go out and give it everything in the tank!

State gets a chance to get to Omaha tomorrow with Logan Whitaker, Cooper Consiglio, Jacob Dudan, and Derrick Smith all rested

I'd take that set up to advance every day of the week
Why not us?

Agree. If a RHP is on the mound Chase should be in for Heavner. If a LhP go ahead and put Heavner in for Chase.

How is that our best defensive lineup. Luke has never played OF and Chase is an OF. I would say Luke snd Heavner are a draw at 2B or maybe Luke is a bit better (more range and better arm).

I wouldn't take Sosa out of lineup.

The little brother that has never played OF (that you know of) is better than big brother out there. Way better.
