This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

North Carolina’s (29-7, 14-4 ACC) 11-game win streak ended on Sunday, but not before the Diamond Heels won their sixth ACC series in a row for the first time since 2013. This week’s slate includes Liberty on Tuesday and a weekend series at Pittsburgh. The Diamond Heels are in excellent shape for the opportunity to be a national seed in the NCAA postseason this year.

Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf attend UNC baseball game

Tennis greats Andre Agassi and Steffi Grafi sat behind home plate at Boshamer Stadium on Friday night and watched the Tar Heels beat NC State, 7-2, to win their 10th consecutive game. The most likely reason the couple were in Chapel Hill is because their son, Jaden, is a pretty good high school baseball player and the visit was a recruiting trip. (Carolina Blue)

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will not miss next start over hamstring injury

Matt Harvey is fine. The Mets righthander who left his start Tuesday night with a “tight” left hamstring said Wednesday he did not feel any aftereffects of the cramp that had forced him out in the sixth inning of the Mets romp over the Phillies. “Nothing, it’s fine,” said Harvey, who had said the same after Tuesday night’s game.

Mets' Matt Harvey shows new ways to be effective in start of second act of career

Matt Harvey may still believe in his heart that he is the ace of the Mets’ staff even as he has been passed by two other guys, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom.

Or maybe we saw something else the other night with Harvey: The beginning of the real second act of his baseball career. (New York Daily News)
