NC State Shuts Out Boston College, Completes Sweep

April 11, 2021
530

Behind a complete game effort from pitcher Matt Willadsen and late scoring by its offense, NC State baseball (14-11, 8-10 ACC) shut out Boston College (14-16, 4-15 ACC), 7-0, on Sunday afternoon at Harrington Athletics Village in Brighton, Mass.

With the Wolfpack's second shutout win of the season, the squad picked up its second series sweep of the year and extended its win streak to five. Additionally, NC State moves to a perfect 8-0 in road games.

The first six innings of the contest were a pitcher's duel between Willadsen (3-0) and BC's Alex Stiegler, who allowed just three batters apiece to reach base up to that point.

The Pack broke the deadlock in the seventh thanks to Vojtech Mensik's squeeze bunt with runners at the corners, and then clutch bases-loaded two-out doubles by Jose Torres and Luca Tresh in the eighth and ninth tacked on the insurance runs.

Willadsen tossed the first complete game of his career in a Wolfpack uniform, yielding just two hits and four walks while fanning five. He is the third NC State pitcher this year to go the distance.

SCORING RECAP

T7: Mensik's sacrifice bunt brought Jonny Butler home from third (1-0 NCSU, 1 out)

T8: Torres cleared the bases with his 3-RBI double down the left field line, scoring Butler, Tresh and Murr (4-0 NCSU, 2 outs)

T9: Tresh's bases-loaded double to left center plated Tyler McDonough, J.T. Jarrett and Devonte Brown (7-0 NCSU, 2 outs)

OF NOTE

McDonough extended his reached base streak to 42 games, which dates back to the 2020 season. It is the longest streak currently held by an ACC player.

Austin Murr extended his reached base streak to 18 games and hit streak to 12.

Butler and Tresh led the squad at the plate with 2-for-4 and 2-for-5 performances, respectively.

Four of the team's eight hits in the game were doubles, and two of them were responsible for the final six runs of the game.

NC State is the only school in the ACC to have two or more pitchers throw a complete game this season.
