UNC Baseball Travels To Miami For ACC Coastal Division Series

UNC Baseball Stays Loose Under The Bright Lights

Perhaps its the size of the crowds, the black batter's eye in center field or, as Mike Fox joked with one Charlotte Knights staffer, the pregame meals. But standing outside the clubhouse after UNC's 11-3 win over South Carolina on Tuesday at BB&T Ballpark, Fox searched for the right words as he tried to explain what's made his team so successful at the facility.

The Pirates missed out on B.J. Surhoff. Now they have his nephew Colin Moran.

In 1998, two decades before rookie Colin Moran drew a curtain call with his first swing at PNC Park, his uncle B.J. Surhoff sat across the table from then-Pirates general manager Cam Bonifay at a Mount Washington restaurant. Bonifay presented Surhoff with an offer: a four-year, $15 million free-agent deal to be the Pirates’ next third baseman. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

North Carolina embarrasses South Carolina for third straight season

Chris Cullen squared to bunt and the sighs outnumbered the cheers, the questions outweighed the hopes. The South Carolina fans who came to BB&T Ballpark for the third installment of a border battle with North Carolina had seen it far too many times. The third act wasn’t as humiliating as the first two, but the result was the same — the Tar Heels won. (Charleston Post and Courier)

Matt Harvey Looks Like His New Self in Mets’ Win

On a drizzly and cold Tuesday night at Citi Field, Matt Harvey took the mound for the first time this season. He was wearing an elbow-length undershirt. When he singled in the third inning of the Mets’ 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, Harvey refused the customary jacket to keep his pitching arm warm. This was a man once known as the Dark Knight. (New York Times)

This Week with Mike Fox: All Good

How critical was the relief appearance from Josh Hiatt on Friday evening to enable the eventual walk-off win? "Well, you never know how the rest of the weekend will go. Those Friday night games are always tough. I thought we faced two of the best pitchers that we have faced all year Friday night for Wake in their starter and in their closer, whom they use like we do." (Inside Carolina)

Colin Moran hits grand slam in Pittsburgh Pirates' home opener

Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Colin Moran's second-career home run ended with a curtain call. Moran came up to bat with the bases loaded in the first inning. He responded by hitting a grand slam over the right field wall. After he entered the dug out, the fans urged him back onto the field with an extended standing ovation. It was his first at-bat at PNC Park. (Penn Live)

North Carolina Baseball Heads To Charlotte Tuesday To Face South Carolina

After a slow start to the season, the Tar Heels have an 8-2 record in ACC play. (GoHeels.com)

South Carolina tries to reclaim dignity in North Carolina baseball series

It seemed like a good idea at the time. South Carolina and North Carolina resuming that old baseball “border battle”? Played in Charlotte, a perfect location considering its minor-league park is one of the best and it’s a convenient distance for each fan base? National TV? Why wouldn’t each school want that? The Tar Heels have certainly enjoyed it the last two years. (Charleston Post & Courier)

Jamie Ortega's Big Day, UNC Olympic Sports Notes

In climbing back from a 6-2 deficit to defeat Notre Dame 13-12 on Saturday at Kenan Stadium, the fifth-ranked Tar Heels received a stellar effort from Jamie Ortega, who played one of the best games by a freshman in program history. Ortega scored a career-high six goals, which marked the most goals by a UNC true freshman in at least the last 20 seasons. (GoHeels.com)
