UNC batting order does not bottom out

Pitchers often look forward to the bottom of the batting order: the seventh-, eighth- and ninth-place hitters. Those slots are expected to be easier outs and produce a quick return from the mound to the dugout for the pitcher. That way, his team can get back to scoring runs for him as soon as possible. This is far from the case with North Carolina. The hitters in the last three spots for the Tar Heels are anything but easy outs.
