North Carolina baseball team extends its season with 8-1 win over Michigan

With one loss already in the double elimination bracket of the NCAA Regional, one more loss would force UNC to witness the end of its season.

She then had a choice: try to send a difficult pass to Carly Reed, streaking down the middle of the field with no one ahead of her, or just pull back and play it safe.
