Gallen’s pitching, Bolt’s homer lift Tar Heels past Wolfpack in baseball

North Carolina pitcher Zac Gallen didn’t really have a good way to describe Friday night’s outing against rival North Carolina State. Gallen tamed the Wolfpack with a six-hitter and teammate Skye Bolt provided a game-winning home run for a 2-1 victory in Atlantic Coast Conference baseball at sold-out Boshamer Stadium. "I don’t have words for it,” Gallen said. “I just went out there and felt all right.” (Burlington Times-News)

Zac Gallen's Persistence Pays Off

Zac Gallen needed just 112 pitches to notch his first career complete game in North Carolina’s 2-1 victory over rival N.C. State on Friday night. Inconsistency has at times plagued Gallen during his sophomore season. In his eight appearances (six as a starter), Gallen has recorded a 2-2 record and a 2.92 ERA. (Inside Carolina)

It's been a long time since Adam Warren started a game, and he's ready to go

When Adam Warren takes the hill against Boston on Saturday, it will have been 561 days since his last regular-season start. That game came a day after Mariano Rivera's Yankee Stadium farewell (and final game), and months before Alex Rodriguez would serve a single day of his season-long suspension. It was, in baseball terms, a really long time ago. And Warren felt every single bit of it. (Newsday)

A series again: Wolfpack, Tar Heels look for consistency on diamond

North Carolina State and North Carolina finally meet in another Atlantic Coast Conference baseball series and both teams would like to rediscover the type of consistency that often defined their play two years ago. “I wouldn’t say we’re playing bad,” N.C. State catcher Andrew Knizner said. “I’d say we want to play better.” The three-game series begins tonight at Boshamer Stadium, the Wolfpack’s first visit to Chapel Hill since 2012.

Korey Dunbar leads Tar Heels into crucial weekend series with NC State

When Korey Dunbar thinks about the rivalry between his Tar Heels and NC State, the first word that leaps to mind is “intensity.” The second word is “Omaha.” Dunbar was a freshman when both Tobacco Road teams played their way into the College World Series.

No joke: Matt Harvey has 'Dark Knight' carved into his bat

Yes, we know Matt Harvey is a pitcher and hitting isn't really the most important part of his day. But, come on, the dude has "Dark Knight" on the knobs of his bats. That's fantastic. Harvey was anointed as "The Dark Knight" by Sports Illustrated during his breakout 2013 season. It stuck, and apparently Harvey likes it enough to put on his bats. Here they are, as captured by Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post: (Yahoo! Sports)

The hype around Matt Harvey finally becomes reality

There were many moments along the way for Matt Harvey in 2013, a lot of pit stops and weigh stations between the first win of the year over the Padres and the Dark Knight cover of Sports Illustrated, between the All-Star Game and that dreadful day against Detroit in August when the elbow screamed “Enough!” But this was The Moment.

Key injuries hurt UNC baseball

While junior reliever Reilly Hovis — who was second on the team last season with 81 strikeouts — has dealt with a forearm issue, the rest of the bullpen has struggled to live up to lofty preseason expectations.
