Mariners manager remains confident in Kyle Seager despite bad early numbers

Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon made it clear Wednesday that he has no concerns about Kyle Seager and his early-season struggles. Those feelings haven’t changed, but McClendon wanted to make sure Seager knew how he felt. So when the Mariners arrived at Globe Life Park on Monday, McClendon had a brief chat with Seager, who was hitting .121 (4 for 33). (Seattle Times)

This Week With Mike Fox

The Diamond Heels are 21-15 (9-9 ACC) after splitting mid-week games and then taking two of three from Wake Forest.

Two of those series will be on the road with the Heels hosting FSU. (Tar Heel Blog)

The storm is coming for UNC's Skye Bolt

Russell has been one of the few veterans anchoring a young North Carolina lineup this season, Bolt has dealt with sophomore struggles. That could be changing. (Daily Tar Heel)

Weekend Preview: April 11-13

It's your last chance to get a Kenan Stadium fix until the 2014 season opener, which is over four months away.

This year's event features numerous gameday activities to provide that Kenan-in-the-fall flavor, and it looks like it will be accompanied by terrific weather. (GoHeels.com)

UNC baseball looking to improve consistency

Diamond Heels Must Improve Little Things

Wednesday night's non-conference matchup for UNC against Coastal Carolina came down to situational execution. Unfortunately for the Tar Heels, the Chanticleers were more fundamentally sound, which is why they left Boshamer Stadium with a 3-2 extra-inning win. Coupled with the lapses offensively and defensively, the Tar Heel pitching staff struggled to have consistent command of the strike zone. (GoHeels.com)
