The Tar Heels survived and advanced to the Super Regional round of the NCCA baseball tournament. They play today at 11 a.m. and tomorrow at noon. This team had a rocky start and is now two wins away from the College World Series. Here are some highlights from this season.
UNC's first ACC home series sweep came in the form of an impressive performance against Pitt. A strong pitching outing from Austin Berner combined with with good showings off the bench created a turning point in the season.
“Look, you want to keep doing this?”- UNC needed a win after a shutout loss to Gardner-Webb and a shaky start to the season. A 13-1 victory over Maryland set this team on a winning pace that would continue into the coming months.
The Tar Heels had a lot to prove going into their series against Wake Forest. Little did they know a 15 inning battle would result in the team's first sweep of the Demon Deacons since 2013.
Come the end of April, N.C. State, ranked No. 2 at the time, was the team to beat. Even while missing their star pitcher, Josh Hiatt, UNC managed to sweep the Wolfpack and secure its climb to clinching the ACC Coastal.
Recently, UNC shook the ghosts of Davidsons past to sweep the regional. The return of Gianluca Dalatri and Cody Roberts added to already winning team. Hopefully they can continue their momentum into the next round.
