Paladins swept at N.C. State

N.C. State racked up 17 hits Sunday to complete a three-game sweep of Furman with a 9-0 win.
The 12th-ranked Wolfpack (7-1) scored in five different innings Sunday and outscored the Paladins 28-2 in the series.

Brock Deatherage and Dillon Cooper each had three hits to lead N.C. State, while David Vazquez had three RBIs. Deatherage, Vazquez and Brett Kinneman homered for the Wolfpack. It was Kinneman's fourth homer of the series as he went deep in each game.

After having just one walk and 18 strikeouts over the first two games, the Paladins (3-4) showed more patience Sunday drawing nine walks. However, Furman had just three hits, struck out 11 times and stranded 11 baserunners.

Freshman Matt Lazzaro (0-1) allowed six runs on 10 hits in four innings to take the loss.

Nolan Clenney (1-0) tossed 3 1/3 hitless innings of relief for N.C. State to get the win.

The tough early-season slate for Furman continues Tuesday when the Paladins play at South Carolina at 4 p.m.
