Michael Russell thrives in leadoff spot

He’d only done it once, maybe twice, in about three years. Typically a middle-of-the-order hitter, North Carolina junior shortstop Michael Russell and the leadoff batting spot were unfamiliar acquaintances. But with the Tar Heels desperate for a spark after a six-game losing streak, coach Mike Fox decided to shuffle the deck. (Daily Tar Heel)

This Week With Mike Fox

Mike Fox: “It was overall a good week for us. Certainly to rebound from our previous week and to have a big mid-week win against a good Wilmington club and the series in Boston was challenging on many fronts with the travel and the weather. We were pleased certainly to win the series but disappointed in letting the Saturday game get away from us.” (Inside Carolina)

The UNC baseball team, 18-13 on the year, opens a five-game homestand Tuesday evening at Boshamer Stadium.
