Tuesday Baseball Report

In terms of UNC's ACC Tournament chances, the Tar Heels presently sit in 5th place but the field around them has gotten very crowded. Potentially complicating matters is the fact UNC has six games against two of the best teams in the ACC. FSU comes to town this weekend and UNC closes out the regular season at Miami the following week. (Tar Heel Blog)

This Week With Mike Fox

Coach Fox, can you reflect back on the East Carolina game last week? "I'd rather not. [Laughs]. That was obviously not a good game for us. The only bright spot for us was on the mound with Taylore Cherry. I thought Taylore pitched exceptionally well and got out of some trouble. But, we didn't do anything else well that entire night. It was a disappointing performance." (Inside Carolina)

Success for Yankees' Adam Warren likely to keep him in bullpen

Adam Warren has grabbed the Yankees' seventh-inning role, manager Joe Girardi said before Friday's game against the Rays. That news might not exactly have been surprising.

Carolina Baseball Team Resting, Reloading For Postseason Push

The Diamond Heels are in the midst of a six-day exam break. But the Carolina baseball team will be back in action next Tuesday for a critical stretch of games in an unfamiliar position: fighting for the postseason.

6-day exam break timely for Tar Heel baseball

The North Carolina baseball team headed into their final game against East Carolina carrying a four-game winning streak, seemingly carrying a bit of momentum.

Astros righty Alex White progressing in rehab

Called "the forgotten man" by general manager Jeff Luhnow, Astros pitcher Alex White took a huge step forward in his recovery process from Tommy John surgery Tuesday by throwing two innings in a game at extended spring training in Kissimmee, Fla. Luhnow said the Astros were pleased with what they saw from White, who had the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow repaired a little more than a year ago. (MLB.com)

This Week With Mike Fox

At the time of the game against the Tar Heels – Liberty had 30 wins with a strong RPI. How important are quality wins heading down the stretch to the post-season?

The losses that we have accumulated during the course of the season, they make games down the stretch that much more critical." (Inside Carolina)

After hectic arrival, Michael Morin awaits debut

Michael Morin wanted to get to Yankee Stadium on Sunday after his recall from Triple-A Salt Lake City before anyone changed their mind. The Gulls were playing in Reno when Morin got the news. He had to fly to Salt Lake and change planes, but that flight was delayed two hours. Heavy traffic in New York delayed him again, and he arrived at the stadium via taxi 45 minutes before game time.

Kyle Seager Named American League Co-Player Of The Week

Kyle Seager has been absolutely scorching at the plate in the past week, going 9-for-22 with 11 RBI behind five home runs.

Monday Baseball Report

UNC is 43rd in the RPI. The Heels' best shot at improving that number comes when FSU comes to town on May 9-11. UNC then faces Miami in Coral Gables the following weekend. A series win against one of those teams would be nice and even finishing 3-3 in ACC play and above .500. In addition to that, UNC handling the midweek non-conference slate is an absolute necessity.
