On June 10, 2024, at 11:20 PM ET, in Athens, Georgia, Eli Serrano III played a pivotal role in North Carolina State’s thrilling 8-5 victory over Georgia. In the sixth inning, Serrano hit a home run that gave NC State a crucial lead. Then, in the seventh inning, he made an amazing catch at the center-field wall that helped secure NC State’s fourth trip to the Men’s College World Series.

NC State, with a record of 38-21, is now set to face Kentucky in the opening round game on Saturday. The Wolfpack have been on a hot streak lately, winning an impressive 18 out of their last 23 games. They join Florida State, Virginia, and UNC as the fourth ACC team to reach the MCWS this year. This achievement ties a conference record set back in 2006.

Georgia had high hopes of making its seventh trip to the MCWS this season. However, NC State took control early on with a 3-2 advantage in the fourth inning and extended its lead to 6-3 by the seventh before finally securing an exciting 8-5 victory over Georgia.

Serrano was one of many key players for NC State during this game. He went 3-for-4 and was responsible for two of those hits being home runs. Makarewicz finished with three RBI while Garrett Pennington also contributed with his two-run home run. Charlie Condon led Georgia’s offense with his impressive performance and hit his 37th home run of the season in the ninth inning alone.

The relief pitcher for NC State Derrick Smith earned himself another save after closing out this hard-fought game for his team. On the other hand, Georgia’s Zach Harris suffered his second loss of the season after giving up three runs over three innings
