— N.C. State extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 15 games with a 4-3 victory over Davidson on Tuesday night.

The Wolfpack (33-10) trailed Davidson 3-0 heading into the top of the fifth inning.

N.C. State scored a run in the bottom of the sixth and two in the seventh to tie the game. That set up the Wolfpack’s ninth-inning, game-winning sacrifice fly by Jake Fincher.

Fincher was 1-for-3 hitting with three RBIs and a walk, driving in both runs in the seventh on a two-out single and the game-winning play that score Logan Ratledge from third.

Ratledge had singled to start the ninth and stole second, before advancing to third on a wild pitch to set the stage for the game’s final play.
