Angels catcher Carlos Perez was in the lineup for Friday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles in Camden Yards, the seventh start in nine games for the 24-year-old rookie who was called up from triple-A Salt Lake on May 4. It’s pretty clear that Perez, who was hitting .318 with one homer and four runs batted in entering Friday has supplanted the struggling Chris Iannetta (.101) as the starter behind the plate, even though Manager Mike Scioscia hasn’t come right out and said it.

The fleeting success of college baseball in the state of North Carolina

In 2013, the college baseball series between North Carolina and N.C. State was the hottest ticket in the Triangle. The Tar Heels and Wolfpack were top-10 national programs who put together an epic, 18-inning ACC Tournament game in front of 11,392 fans at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
