During the weekend, UNC got back to final scores more to its liking.
The Tar Heels, after a season-opening split to South Carolina in which they could muster only one run, blew through a weekend four-game sweep against Elon and Appalachian State at Finley Field.
UNC's Michael Parrott took the mound Sunday in the second game against the Mountaineers. The righty mixed speeds on her deliveries and struck out 13 in the Tar Heels' 6-1 victory.
Her strikeout total was a personal best and just four off UNC's all-time mark of 17 set by Tracey Brower in 1998.
"I came out, I knew what I had to do. I knew what that team had and knew the batters," Parrott said. "(UNC catcher Natalie Anter) was calling a great game, mixing up and changing speeds."
North Carolina's bats took care of the rest.
UNC opened the contest with consecutive RBI hits from shortstop Michelle Semmes and Anter.
Aiding her own cause, Parrott smashed a two-run double with the bases loaded to highlight a four-run first inning.
In the opener against ASU, Radara McHugh took the hill and did not disappoint the Finley faithful. McHugh struck out six, walked two and allowed two hits in five innings of work in the Tar Heels' 10-0 victory.
