Mariners’ Chris Iannetta enjoys his return trip to Anaheim

It wasn’t quite like Robinson Cano’s return to Yankee Stadium. But the first time the public-address announcer at Angels Stadium announced Chris Iannetta’s name as he was coming to the plate, a few boos were noticeable. Not exactly an ideal greeting for a guy who played in 394 games over the last four seasons with the Angels. (Seattle Times)

UNC Baseball takes first steps toward righting season

UNC baseball coach Mike Fox is juxtaposed between calming down Carolina and demanding it win games, but he says he'd rather be in the contrasting position than one where he's demanding wins from an apathetic group. "We put ourselves in that position," he said. "We need to rack up some wins. I call it like I see it. We have to win at home down the stretch." (WRAL Sports Fan)

Tim Federowicz to join Chicago Cubs today from Iowa

The Chicago Cubs’ catching corps took another hit when the Cubs decided Thursday to place starter Miguel Montero on the disabled list because of persistent back soreness. Tim Federowicz, a veteran of 89 big-league games who was signed over the winter for big-league depth, was to be added to the roster and join the team at some point Thursday, the Cubs said.

For Mets' Matt Harvey, this is progress

On the fourth pitch of the game Wednesday night, Mets starter Matt Harvey served up a home run. The next batter smacked a single up the middle. It appeared at that point, once again, Harvey was going to have a long night. You probably know where we're going with this. Harvey's night did not turn long or ugly. (NJ.com)

Kyle Seager’s Journey to 100 Career Home Runs

With one out and the score tied 1-1 in the bottom of the 4th inning Monday at Safeco Field, Kyle Seager worked the count to 3-1 against Astros starter Doug Fister. Sitting on a 3-1 fastball, Seager deposited a solo home run into the right-center field bleachers. The round-tripper not only gave the Mariners a lead they would not relinquish, it marked 100 career home runs for Seager. (MLB.com)

The guy the Cubs got for Starlin Castro is pretty good

Adam Warren may not be the known commodity that Starlin Castro is, but he’s off to his own hot start. Middle relievers don’t get much fanfare, but Warren is the only non-starter to win a game for the Cubs. In fact, he has won two, including Tuesday’s 4-3 nail-biter over the Milwaukee Brewers. “He’s gotten better from spring training until now,” manager Joe Maddon said. (ESPN.com)

No. 19 Diamond Heels Ease Past Campbell, 9-4

Logan Warmoth clubbed his first home run of the year and Brian Miller had his second straight three-hit game as No. 19 North Carolina handled visiting Campbell 9-4 Wednesday night at Boshamer Stadium (Highlights). Brandon Riley and Zack Gahagan added two hits apiece for the Tar Heels, who will break until next Tuesday for final exams. (GoHeels.com)

Bacon-wrapped baseball at the Bosh

Did you hear the one about the vegetarian who went to Bacon Night? He won a year’s supply of bacon. No, seriously. Freshman Quinn Rhodes went to UNC baseball’s second annual bacon night promotion Tuesday night with his friends, and despite being a lifelong vegetarian, he entered a drawing for a chance to bring home the bacon for a full year just for kicks. (NSJ Sports)

Adam Warren moves up in Cubs' pitching pecking order

Injuries and doubleheaders could necessitate the need for a sixth starter, but the Cubs have yet to encounter that situation. Nevertheless, there’s a slight changing of the guard as to who would assume that role. Adam Warren, who pitched two perfect innings Tuesday night, has moved ahead of that role should a situation arise where the Cubs need another starter. (Chicago Tribune)

Datres’ Heroics Help UNC Take “Must-Win” Game from UNC-Wilmington

UNC baseball head coach Mike Fox–with his Tar Heels mired in a slump that has lasted throughout the month of April–challenged his team to be tougher. After a back-and-forth affair which lasted nearly four and a half hours on Tuesday, they showed their coach’s message was taken to heart–ending UNC-Wilmington’s 12-game win streak with a 10-9 victory at Boshamer Stadium courtesy of freshman Kyle Datres’ walk-off walk.

UNC Baseball Walks Past UNCW, 10-9

Kyle Datres drove in the tying run in the bottom of the eighth and drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth to lift No. 19 North Carolina to a 10-9 win over No. 19 UNCW Tuesday night at Boshamer Stadium. Hansen Butler worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his third win of the season as the Tar Heels snapped a three-game skid to improve to 27-15. (GoHeels.com)

Carolina Baseball Hosts UNCW Tuesday On Bacon Night

North Carolina welcomes a pair of in-state opponents to Boshamer Stadium this week prior to a six-day break for final exams. The Tar Heels host UNCW on Tuesday at 6 p.m. before facing Campbell Wednesday evening at 6. Carolina has dropped five of six to fall to 26-15 on the year after a weekend sweep at Wake Forest.

This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

Mike Fox: "Right now I'm trying to keep our kids believing and trying to get us focused on these two games that are coming up before finals again. That is our challenge to keep grinding and which I know this team will, because this team has a lot of good leaders and has a very high character and they really, really want to win. We are just not playing well enough right now to do so." (Inside Carolina)

UNC Baseball Drops from Top 25

North Carolina has dropped out of the D1Baseball top 25 rankings for the first time this season. UNC was swept over the weekend by Wake Forest, who entered the series against UNC with a 7-11 record in ACC play. The Tar Heels had split the mid-week games losing to Coastal Carolina and then knocking off William & Mary. (Chapelboro.com)
