The No. 21 North Carolina baseball team will travel to Charlottesville this weekend for a three-game series against Virginia.
Winning 15 of their last 20 games, the Tar Heels (22-11, 10-5 ACC) are scorching hot as they take on an ACC Coastal division rival. With a successful weekend, UNC could potentially take the outright lead in the division.
After starting the season with a solid 9-5 record, Virginia has struggled in ACC play, dropping series' to Pittsburgh and No. 14 Duke, and also getting swept by Miami.
The two teams enter this weekend with similar records, but they're headed in different directions. Both sides, however, have been hitting the ball very well.
The two hottest hitters for UVa. have been junior Andy Weber and first-year Tanner Morris. Weber leads the Cavaliers in batting average and his .373 mark ranks third in the conference. In addition, Weber has hit three home runs, driven in 31 RBIs and possesses a .440 on-base percentage. Morris currently owns a .322 average and a .416 on-base percentage.
