In Omaha, Neb., Carlos Rodon (left) tossed a five-hitter with eight strikeouts as NC State defeated top-seeded North Carolina 8-1 Sunday in front of 22,972 fans at TD Ameritrade Park.


Rodon (10-2) held the Tar Heels (57-11) scoreless for eight innings before they plated a run in the ninth. Rodon walked two, faced 32 batters and delivered 108 pitches.


The Wolfpack (50-14) got on the board in the top of the first as Trea Turner walked, stole second and scored on a two-out single by Tarran Senay to make it 1-0.


NC State chased UNC starter Kent Emanuel in the third. Brett Austin had a one-out double and came in on a two-out base hit by Grant Clyde. Brett Williams (2 for 4) doubled in Clyde and scored on a base hit by Bryan Adametz (2 for 4), ending the day for Emanuel (11-4, 2.2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 1 BB, 2 K). Reliever Chris McCue walked Jake Armstrong before surrendering a single to Logan Ratledge (2 for 5) to bring in Adametz and make it 5-1.


Austin had a sacrifice fly in the eighth, while Armstrong and Ratledge drove in runs in the top of the ninth to extend the lead to 8-0.


Chaz Frank had a leadoff single in the bottom of the ninth for UNC and scored on a double by Landon Lassiter as the Tar Heels avoided the shutout.
