Strong pitching carries Heels to win

North Carolina finally got a good outing from a starting pitcher in the College World Series, and now it gets another shot at Rice. Thanks to sophomore Luke Putkonen's seven strikeouts, the Tar Heels topped Louisville 3-1 this afternoon at Rosenblatt Stadium. They will face the Owls on Wednesday at 2 p.m., and must beat Rice then, and again Thursday, for the right to play in the best-of-three championship series. (Raleigh News & Observer)
