Buford answered by scoring four runs in both the third and fifth frames, sandwiching a five-run fourth to take an 18-9 lead into the top of the sixth inning.Both sides had 10 hits on the night and each stranded 10 runners on the base paths, but NC committed six errors while its four pitchers combined to walk 10 batters while hitting two others.Ryan Baker led the way for Robbie Cash’s troops with a double and two singles in four at-bats while driving in a run. J.P. Faulkenberry went 2-for-3 on the night while driving in four runs with his two singles.
