Complete coverage of North Carolina Baseball.

Behind the scenes with UNC's grounds crew

Casey Carrick fills in the navy blue outlines of C-A-R-O-L-I-N-A with a fine mist of Carolina blue lettering. It’s April 11, and he’s standing in the end zone of the field at Kenan Stadium as the early morning light filters in. There’s only a day until the annual Spring Game, a day that’s just as much a dress rehearsal for the football team as it is for Carrick and the grounds crew. (Carolina Blue)

Numbers Game for UNC Baseball

North Carolina enters its final week of the regular season presumably on the right side of the NCAA Tournament bubble after clinching an ACC Tournament berth on Sunday.

Dustin Ackley smacks two more homers

Dustin Ackley has always maintained he isn’t a home-run hitter. But in the last few days, he has sure looked like one. Ackley belted a pair of solo home runs, providing a bright spot in an otherwise frustrating 9-7 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday at Safeco Field. It was his first multihomer game of his career. (Seattle Times)

Monday Baseball Report

All things considered it wasn't a bad week for UNC baseball. A second win against Florida State would have been nice but avoiding the sweep was important as the Heels struggle to stay on the right side of the NCAA bubble. Baseball America's Aaron Fitt continues to show UNC on the "in" side of the NCAA Tournament bubble and the Heels need at least one win against Miami to keep the momentum going. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Seniors Spark Offense

North Carolina picked up their 30th win of the season on Sunday as they defeated No. 5 Florida State 5-4 on Senior Day at Boshamer Stadium. Seniors Parks Jordan and Tom Zengel each drove in a run, as the offense came alive in time to give the Tar Heels a much-needed victory.

Turner's Take: Backs Against The Wall

Conventional wisdom says Carolina needs at least one win in Coral Gables to strengthen its NCAA Tournament résumé. It’s going to be a tough mountain to climb, but this team has shown it’s capable of playing with anybody. Sunday wins at Virginia and against Florida State proved that Carolina is capable of winning with their backs against the wall. In the last week of the season, they’ll need to do it again.

Mets' Matt Harvey hopes to pitch from mound in one month

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey's recovery from October 2013 Tommy John surgery continues to go well. Harvey was able to throw from 120 feet on flat ground on Friday, and that puts him in line to pitch from a mound on June 10. Obviously, that's a month away, and setbacks are still possible. That said, this suggests that Harvey could hit those "best-case scenario" estimates for his return to the Mets. (CBS Sports)

#4 Florida State visits North Carolina

The Tar Heels have been fantastic on the mound this season with a team ERA of of just 2.80, good for second best in the ACC behind Virginia. With a low number of hits allowed per game coupled with a high strikeout rate, UNC has largely been able to keep offenses at bay all season. (Tomahawk Nation)
