Louisiana Tech baseball’s season ends against NC State in Ruston Regional

2 min read

For much of the season, Louisiana Tech baseball sported the better lineup.

But in the Ruston Regional at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park, the No. 1 seed Bulldogs ran into a team that mashed better than them. 

North Carolina State (33-17) blasted Tech for 32 hits over two games, handing Tech two losses. In the regional final Sunday, the Wolfpack had 18 hits en route to winning 14-7 to advance to super regionals.

The loss ended the season for Louisiana Tech (42-20) and soured its first regional host bid in program history. 

North Carolina State's JT Jarrett (15) is tagged out by Louisiana Tech shortstop Logan McLeod (10) during the NCAA regional final Sunday June 6, 2021 at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.

Louisiana Tech won the hit battle over Rider and Alabama in the regional, collecting 25 hits over those two games. But Tech couldn’t manage double-digit hits in either game versus NC State, and the Wolfpack took advantage to score 22 total runs over the two games versus Tech.
