Weekly walk-up: JB Bukauskas shares reasoning for music choice

The song - "God's Gonna Cut You Down," by Johnny Cash. The process - J.B. Bukauskas, like Gianluca Dalatri, came in to college without ever having to choose a walkout song, but for Bukauskas, it turned out to be an easy task. He found his song in his inaugural campaign as a Tar Heel in 2014 and never looked back. A simple process, but it was the right one in this case. (Daily Tar Heel)

Matt Harvey makes progress on mound, Mets hope confidence returns

The Mets must continue in their belief that Matt Harvey will eventually get back. The righthander who is trying to find his way back from major season-ending surgery, his second in three years, showed flashes Wednesday of the dominant pitcher he used to be. At times he also showed how far he has to go as the Mets lost 5-4 in 11 innings to the Diamondbacks at Chase Field. (New York Daily News)

Cleveland Indians reliever Andrew Miller is human, barely

As reporters huddled around Andrew Miller, fellow reliever Boone Logan passed the crowd on his way to his locker. "It's the end of the world!" he shouted. "He gave up a run!" It's true. Miller's 2017 ERA is eternally -- albeit ever-so-slightly -- blemished. The Rays tagged him for a run on an eighth-inning sacrifice fly, and his ERA subsequently ballooned to 0.48. (It's 0.47 now.)

A spring tradition: Mariners’ Kyle Seager heating up in May

If Kyle Seager’s past week and a half is an indication, it appears April showers have again brought May power. Seager hasn’t just been potent for the Seattle Mariners this month, he has been clutch as well. If the bullpen would have been able to hang on Tuesday, a Seager home run would have been the difference in three games over a 10-day stretch. (Seattle Times)

This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

The North Carolina baseball team (41-10, 21-6 ACC) heads into the last week of the regular season following a series victory at Virginia Tech. They’ll host UNC-Wilmington on Tuesday before Duke comes to town for a Thursday-Friday-Saturday series. "It is hard to go through 10 series in this league and win all of them. We have an opportunity to do that." (Inside Carolina)

UNC Baseball Hangs Tight at No. 3 in D1Baseball Top 25

Former UNC pitcher Alex White working his way back with independent minor league team

Sioux City Explorers manager Steve Montgomery didn’t know what to expect from 28-year-old righthander Alex White, who spent nearly two full big-league seasons with the Indians and the Rockies. So, it impressed “Mongo” considerably when White stepped on the field for the team’s first workout Saturday, volunteering for the dreaded bucket duty during batting practice. (Sioux City Journal)

No. 3 UNC Baseball Wallops Virginia Tech, 20-0

Zack Gahagan homered and drove in five runs and Brian Miller matched a career high with five hits as No. 3 North Carolina secured its ninth consecutive series win with a 20-0 victory over Virginia Tech Sunday at English Field. UNC scored seven times in both the sixth and seventh to turn a tight game into the Tar Heels' biggest shutout win over an ACC foe in program history. (GoHeels.com)

Chris Iannetta has fractured teeth, broken nose after pitch to face

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta has several stitches in his upper lip, plus a couple of fractured teeth and a broken nose after getting hit in the face by a fastball. "He's doing OK, and I think we're all lucky and fortunate for that," manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday. Iannetta was struck by a 93 mph pitch from Pittsburgh reliever Johnny Barbato in the seventh inning Friday. (ESPN.com)

Virginia Tech splits doubleheader with third-ranked UNC baseball

In his final home start in a Virginia Tech uniform, redshirt-senior Kit Scheetz held third-ranked North Carolina to four runs over six-plus innings and helped the Hokies earn a split in a doubleheader against the Tar Heels on Saturday. After UNC grabbed the first game, 9-4, the Hokies responded in game two by jumping out to a 6-2 lead and registered an 8-4 win. (Hokie Sports)

No. 3 Tar Heels Clinch ACC Coastal Baseball Crown

Tyler Lynn's two-run homer in the sixth gave No. 3 North Carolina the lead for good and Rodney Hutchison Jr. worked 4.2 scoreless innings of relief as the Tar Heels beat Virginia Tech 9-4 Saturday at English Field. The win, coupled with Virignia's loss to Miami, means the Tar Heels have clinched the ACC Coastal Division title outright for the first time since 2013. (GoHeels.com)

Matt Harvey's return doesn't end well, but Mets see a silver lining

Too much of the chatter around the New York Mets' Matt Harvey over the past week has been about what he needs to do as a person and a teammate. With his outing Friday in a 7-4 New York loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, he showed he also has a lot of work to do as a pitcher. And he knows it, which might be the silver lining in all this. (ESPN.com)

Mariners’ Kyle Seager talks baseball, brothers, idolizing Derek Jeter and more

In case you didn’t notice, Kyle Seager is heating up. Over his last seven games, the Mariners third baseman is hitting .320, including a game-clinching home run last weekend against the Rangers. Seager’s bat has anchored one of the best 3-4-5 combos in baseball, while his sure-handed play at third base has solidified the left side of the Mariners’ infield. (Seattle Times)
