College World Series: NC State beats Vanderbilt, Stanford stays alive
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Jack Leiter was great for Vanderbilt striking out 15 batters in a complete game but he made one mistake, it turned out to be very costly. Terrell Tatum led off the bottom of the fifth inning with a solo home on an 0-1 pitch. That was it, that’s all the Wolfpack needed in a 1-0 win.
Sam Highfill and Evan Justice combined to shutout the defending champs. Highfill started and struck out seven in 7.1 innings of work. He only allowed two hits. Justice did not allow a hit.
The Wolfpack advance to Friday’s afternoon game and they are in a good club. 25 of the last 30 national champs have started the College World Series 2-0.
Vanderbilt will play Stanford Wednesday night in an elimination game. The Cardinal beat Arizona 14-5 this afternoon. Brock Jones was 3-6 with 5 RBIs and two runs scored. Stanford scored seven runs in the third inning and that held up.
