The Tar Heels played two, and they won two.
North Carolina baseball (21-1, 7-1 ACC) beat Boston College (3-17, 0-8 ACC) 5-2 on Saturday afternoon at Boshamer Stadium to complete a sweep of its doubleheader against the reeling Eagles. The No. 1 Tar Heels beat Boston College, which has now lost 10 straight games, 11-0 earlier in the day.
Benton Moss, who struggled with his command at times, fought his way through seven tough innings to get the win. Moss allowed two runs on five hits, walked two and struck out six, improving to 6-0 on the season. Chris McCue worked the last two innings for a six-out save.
Moss got himself into trouble early on. He allowed a run before recording an out and couldn’t seem to find the strike zone, walking Logan Hoggarth on pitches that weren’t close.
That prompted early visits to the mound from catcher Korey Dunbar and pitching coach Scott Forbes, after which Moss buckled down, ending the inning with two called strikeouts and a groundout.
