Former NC State shortstop Trea Turner and the Washington Nationals defeated the Houston Astros 6-2 in game seven to win the World Series, four games to three, on Oct. 30.

The NC State Club Baseball team is off to a thrilling start this fall season with a 4-0 record after sweeping UNC-Charlotte at home this past weekend. The doubleheader that took place Saturday was a nail-biting event after the Wolfpack came away from the first game 8-6 and scathed by in the second game in extra innings, winning 9-8. 

The Washington Nationals swept the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS, topped off by a 7-4 win on Tuesday night in Washington, DC. They will face the winner of the New York Yankees and Houston Astros series, which the Astros currently lead 2-1.

On a Sunday, most people are hanging with family, or if you are a college student, probably doing homework. This is not the case if you're a high school baseball recruit; playing baseball on the weekends in the summer and fall soon becomes a lifestyle for many. 

The NC State baseball team split a doubleheader with UNCW at Brooks Field in its second fall exhibition showcase, losing the first game 6-2 and winning the second game 11-1.
