UNC Baseball Preview: Clemson

After losing to FSU 8-4 on Thursday the Tar Heels face a quick turnaround before taking the field again against the Tigers at 3:00 PM on Friday. Carolina needs to beat a team they went 2-1 against in the regular season to improve their resume for the NCAA selection committee. Even though neither team can win the ACC title, Clemson comes into the game with all the momentum. (Tar Heel Blog)

Florida State Defeats UNC, 8-4

Florida State has never captured an ACC Baseball Championship at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, but the Seminoles took a giant step toward ending the drought on Thursday. Ben DeLuzio and Josh Delph each went 3-for-4 at the plate as FSU downed eighth-seeded North Carolina, 8-4, in Pool A play. UNC (33-24, 0-2) faces fifth-seeded Clemson (32-26, 1-1) in Friday’s 3 p.m. game. (GoHeels.com)

Before Ryan Zimmerman’s walk off vs. Andrew Miller, the two shared a long history

The first time these two squared off, Zimmerman was a 19-year-old sophomore at the University of Virginia, Miller a 19-year-old freshman at the University of North Carolina. That Cavaliers team would send Zimmerman and Mark Reynolds and Joe Kohansky to the majors. That Tar Heels team would send Miller and Chris Ianetta and hard-throwing Daniel Bard to the big leagues, too. (Washington Post)

For freshman hitter Brian Miller, a journey worth the wait

At this time last year, Brian Miller had no plans to play for UNC — a school he idolized as a child. But like a baseball hurled toward home plate at 90 miles per hour, life can come at you pretty fast. In elementary school, middle school and high school, Miller identified himself as a Tar Heel. Miller grew up in Raleigh, just 30 minutes away from UNC’s campus. (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC Baseball Preview: Florida State

After losing to Louisville on Wednesday the Tar Heels might be in games they have to win if they want to make the NCAA tournament. With only two more shots to impress the committee (unless Louisville loses both its remaining games and UNC wins both), UNC starts against Florida State. The Seminoles had a very strong season and started the ACC tournament with a 3-1 win over Clemson on Wednesday. (Tar Heel Blog)

Tar Heels Fall To No. 3 Cardinals, 7-4

Louisville found itself down four runs to eighth-seeded North Carolina in the early going Wednesday evening. The Cardinals, playing in their first ever ACC Baseball Championship game, responded by showing the Durham Bulls Athletic Park crowd why they are this tournament’s top seed and one of the nation’s elite teams. (GoHeels.com)

Carolina to Face Louisville in ACC Baseball Tournament

The Tar Heels face the top-ranked Louisville Cardinals at 7pm Wednesday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Cardinals have been the top team in the ACC for much of the season and have ridden that to being one of the top ranked teams in the nation. This is a game where the Heels will need to play according to their preseason expectations and not their recent performance. (Tar Heel Blog)

Louisville will open 2015 ACC baseball tournament against North Carolina

The top-seeded Louisville baseball team will begin its 2015 ACC Tournament run against No. 8 seed North Carolina on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Tar Heels defeated No. 9 seed Virginia Tech 5-3 on Tuesday to advance into the main draw of the tournament. The Cardinals (42-14, 25-5) did not face UNC (33-22, 13-16) during the regular season. U of L will send freshman righthander Sean Leland to the bump to try and begin the postseason with a victory.

Matt Harvey is a leader worth following

Let's get this out of the way: No, manager Terry Collins shouldn't have kept Harvey (105 pitches) in for the ninth. It's a long season, Harvey is coming off major surgery and Familia has been great. And the Mets went on to win in 14 innings anyway, 2-1. We're sure Harvey was disappointed the win wasn't his, but he didn't show that publicly. He can't. It's not what leaders do. (Newsday)

Turner's Take: Mound of Rebound

On Tuesday, it was simple: Beat Virginia Tech, and the Tar Heels would get three more chances to prove their worth on the field. Lose, and they’d go home and cross their fingers for Monday’s NCAA Tournament Selection Show. So if Tuesday’s game wasn’t officially a ‘must-win’ game, it was surely a ‘would feel a lot better if won.’ (GoHeels.com)

UNC's Dunbar has sights set on education after school

North Carolina junior catcher Korey Dunbar isn’t like most 21-year-olds when it comes to life perspective. “If Korey’s teammates aren’t looking at him as an example of how they should carry themselves, they are missing the boat,” UNC head coach Mike Fox said. As far back as eighth grade, Dunbar assisted his older sister Kara teaching special needs students in his home state of West Virginia. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Matt Harvey's post-Tommy John Surgery numbers looking quite good

Matt Harvey has thrown 16 straight scoreless innings dating back to the one start he lost—against the Phillies. His ERA is now 1.98 this season and 0.96 in his last four starts. Harvey now has four starts this season in which he pitched at least six innings and allowed no runs. That’s the most such starts in the majors. In 2013, the year Harvey started the All-Star Game, he had five such starts all season. (ESPN.com)

Video: UNC-Virginia Tech ACC Tournament Highlights

North Carolina scored four times in the fourth inning to help fuel its play-in round victory over Virginia Tech, 5-3. Tar Heels starting pitcher Zac Gallen gave up a run in the second inning, but recovered nicely, fanning seven Hokies over 6.2 innings of work. UNC advances into the pool play stage of the championship where it will first take on top-seeded Louisville. View Video...

North Carolina Defeats Virginia Tech to Advance to Pool Play

After struggling through the final two weeks of the regular season, eighth-seeded UNC hoped to turn things back around during the 2015 ACC Baseball Championship. The Tar Heels took a step in that direction on Tuesday. UNC used a solid outing by Zac Gallen and strong relief work by Trevor Kelley to turn back ninth-seeded Virginia Tech, 5-3, in Tuesday’s second play-in game at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. (The ACC)

As the Dustin Ackley era continues to sputter in Seattle, a change of scenery may be in order

That the curtain is closing on the Dustin Ackley era in Seattle, such as it was, seems inevitable. He now induces that level of visceral scorn reserved only for the most desperately struggling Mariners. Not quite Chone Figgins territory, but descending quickly. What is more difficult to fathom is how it got to this point, where every time Lloyd McClendon writes Ackley’s name in the lineup, it seems to be either a reprieve, or a last rite. (Seattle Times)
