OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - North Carolina State's Carlos Rodon pitched eight shutout innings and the Wolfpack knocked ACC pitcher of the year Kent Emanuel out of the game early in an 8-1 victory in their College World Series opener Sunday.

Rodon (10-2) held the No. 1 national seed Tar Heels hitless into the fifth inning. He allowed five hits and struck out eight.

It was the sophomore left-hander's second straight dominating performance against the Tar Heels. Three weeks ago he allowed one hit and struck out 14 in 10 innings in a 2-1, 18-inning loss in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

The Wolfpack (50-14) play either LSU or UCLA on Tuesday. The Tar Heels (57-11) are one loss from elimination.

Brett Williams, Bryan Adametz and Logan Ratledge had two hits apiece for the Wolfpack.

Emanuel (11-4) failed to get out of the third inning for a second straight start.
