Moran finding his stride in College World Series

OMAHA, Neb. — Colin Moran says he’s just finding holes. He also thinks, sometimes, it’s luck. And on college baseball’s largest stage, Moran’s just a “little more relaxed,” and letting the game come to him. However it’s happening, Moran’s response to the pressure and spotlight of being the highest drafted college player in the College World Series is paying dividends for the MLB’s sixth overall draft pick and his Tar Heel teammates in their quest for the program’s first national title. Moran was responsible for two of the team’s seven RBIs and one run in North Carolina’s 7-0 shutout of N.C.

Giving seats to active players may have been the motive, but on this particular night, the setup may have also served as a sound barrier against the North Carolina fans in attendance. Yet the defensive wall was not enough to secure the Tigers a victory.
