Statement series awaits Clemson, UNC

Coach Monte Lee said this weekend is why his players come to Clemson. Beginning Friday at 6:30 p.m., the No. 3-ranked Tigers will be put to the test with a trip to No. 4 North Carolina for the highest-profile college baseball series in the country. “What a great challenge for our team,” Lee said. “We feel like we’ve got a good team. The tougher it is, the better we like it.” (Anderson Independent Mail)

Clemson ready for marquee baseball series against UNC

“We feel like we’ve got a good team. The tougher it is, the better we like it.” Those words were spoken by Clemson head baseball coach Monte Lee in reference to college baseball’s marquee series this upcoming weekend, as the No. 3 Tigers (34-8, 16-5 ACC) travel to tobacco road to take on the No. 4 North Carolina Tar Heels (33-9, 16-5 ACC).

After baseball panned out, Dean Cassell had designs for a golf career

Baseball helped pay for the incredible career that Dean Cassell enjoyed with the game of golf. The Boston Red Sox paid for his economics degree from UNC, where he was a star pitcher for the Tar Heels, and after a stint in the Navy and some time in the Philadelphia Phillies’ minor league system, he used his $5,000 signing bonus from the team to attend Harvard Business School.

Three things to watch as UNC baseball gears up for showdown against Clemson

Through 42 games, UNC is 33-9, and the Tigers are 34-8. Both have identical ACC records of 16-5. North Carolina has one edge in ACC play ­— it’s won all seven of its series, including sweeps of Florida State and Boston College. UNC also won two of three in its opening series against No. 8 Virginia. Clemson’s conference record isn’t completely spotless. (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC Baseball Relying on Rookie Arms

With the biggest series of the season against Clemson on tap this weekend, and a potential route to Omaha through Chapel Hill, UNC baseball coach Mike Fox needs his young pitching staff to turn into men. While ace J.B. Bukauskas has led the charge with a 7-0 record and 1.53 ERA, the real story for the Tar Heels’ pitching staff has been the influx of freshman pitchers. (Inside Carolina)

UNC, Clemson Set For Top-Three Baseball Showdown

No. 3 North Carolina kicks off one of the most highly anticipated series of the season Friday when the Tar Heels host No. 3 Clemson for the first of three at Boshamer Stadium. Carolina is 33-9 after a pair of midweek victories over Elon and Campbell. Clemson is 34-8 following a 7-2 win over Charleston on Tuesday. (GoHeels.com)

Weekend Baseball Preview: UNC-Clemson a Clash of ACC Super Powers

No. 6 Clemson at No. 3 North Carolina is a clash of ACC super powers. The Tar Heels are in the driver’s seat in the Coastal Division, up four games over second-place Virginia, and after this weekend, UNC’s remaining schedule doesn’t include a team whose RPI ranks above 120. The Tar Heels have yet to lose an ACC series, and are a relative lock for a national seed. (Baseball America)

Tar Heels, Bukauskas back on top

It’s Crunch Time with a capital “CT” in the college baseball regular season. And with eight games on their schedule between last Friday (April 21) and this Sunday (April 30), the North Carolina Tar Heels haven’t had a lot of time to sit back and reflect on what they’ve accomplished over the first two-plus months of the 2017 college baseball season. Nor do they want to. (Perfect Game)

No. 3 UNC Baseball Stymies Campbell, 7-1

Logan Warmoth and Zack Gahagan combined for five doubles to lead No. 3 North Carolina to a 7-1 win over Campbell Wednesday at Boshamer Stadium. Five Tar Heel pitchers teamed up to hold the Camels to one run on three hits as UNC won its fourth straight game against Campbell. The Tar Heels host No. 3 Clemson for three games starting Friday at 6:30 p.m. (GoHeels.com)

Josh Hiatt Named To Stopper Of The Year Watch List

40 of college baseball's top relief pitchers have been named to the Midseason Watch List for the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Award. UNC redshirt freshman Josh Hiatt, who is tied for the ACC lead with 12 saves, is among the candidates. Hiatt has a 1.39 ERA in 23 appearances. Opponents are hitting a paltry .143 against him. (GoHeels.com)

UNC proving to be the class of the Triangle on the Diamond

The Tar Heels welcome No. 6 Clemson to Chapel Hill, part of an eight-game homestand, for what should be a thrilling series, as the Tigers bring a strong offense led by sophomore Seth Beer plus a pitching staff that leads the ACC with 396 strikeouts and is vastly improved from last season, when Clemson nonetheless won the league tournament and was a national seed.

Ashton McGee amazes with diving catch in UNC baseball's win over Elon

UNC’s sports turf crew had battled Chapel Hill’s incessant drizzle just enough for the 6 p.m. first pitch. Maybe caked was the right word for the dirt — something cleats sink into just enough to annoy a player, making every cut just a little bit slower. That didn’t stop Ashton McGee from making the play of the game in the Tar Heels’ 11-2 win. (Daily Tar Heel)

Logan Warmoth Powering UNC's Bats

North Carolina shortstop Logan Warmoth has led the Tar Heel offense all season long, leading the team in batting average (.345), slugging percentage (.560), on base percentage (.425), runs scored (40), hits (59) and home runs (7). His proficiency at the plate has earned him a spot on the midseason Golden Spikes Award watch list. (Inside Carolina)

No. 3 UNC Baseball Rolls Past Elon, 11-2

Brian Miller had four hits and No. 3 UNC improved to 32-9 with an 11-2 win over Elon Tuesday at Boshamer Stadium. Brandon Riley clubbed his second three-run homer in as many games and the Tar Heels cruised to their 13th straight victory over the Phoenix. Miller, Riley, Ashton McGee and Tyler Lynn had multi-hit games for UNC on a night when all nine starters either scored or drove in a run. (GoHeels.com)
