"I do," Burleson said before warning Avent he would eject him if he didn't quit following him.
After the game, Avent said he didn't get an adequate explanation.
"He was kind of hard to talk to," Avent said. "I certainly didn't want to get thrown out on this stage, at this great event. Maybe the guy's hand got in. The ball just beat him, so maybe we didn't block the plate well enough."
Rodon caused some of his own problems in the fourth. Moran singled leading off and was safe at second when Rodon bounced a throw into center field as he tried to get Moran on Holberton's bunt. He walked Cody Stubbs to load the bases with none out.
Moran was forced out at home on Skye Bolt's grounder to third, and then Russell delivered his sacrifice fly.
Rodon hit Parks Jordan leading off the fifth, and Moran's two-out single to center brought him home.
The Tar Heels made it 6-0 with a four-run eighth, with Russell singling in two runs and Mike Zolk doubling in two more.
"We laid a foundation for future classes," NC State's Trea Turner said. "Hopefully we can get some good classes next year and years following that and make some trips back here and win it for the ACC and for North Carolina State."
