It was midway through the 2018 season when the North Carolina baseball team faced ACC opponent Georgia Tech on a Sunday afternoon. The No. 8 Tar Heels were aiming for their first series sweep against the Yellow Jackets since 1996.
North Carolina had stomped the Yellow Jackets 9-3 on Friday, racking up three home runs, one of which was inside the park.
Junior Jackson Hesterlee played the hero that Saturday when his pinch-hit grand slam tied the game, 6-6, in the bottom of the eighth of a 9-8 walk-off victory in the 10th inning.
In the Sunday game, junior Cooper Criswell started on the mound for the Tar Heels and made quick work of the first six Yellow Jacket hitters, and in the bottom of the second, North Carolina scored two runs to take an early advantage.
Sophomore Michael Busch smashed his tenth home run of the year with a two-run shot in the bottom of the third, but the Yellow Jackets responded with one run in the top of the fourth to make it 3-1, and neither team was able to pull ahead until UNC exploded for seven runs in the bottom of the seventh.
