Skye Bolt blasted his sixth home run in a six-run fourth and Trevor Kelley picked up his fifth win for the Tar Heels, who have won eight of nine heading into a key ACC series at Notre Dame.

Workhorse Trevor Kelley is ‘go-to guy’ out of UNC bullpen

Of the 45 baseball games North Carolina has played this season, Trevor Kelley has pitched in 32. And more times than not, the senior right-hander from Wilmington has come in and gotten the job done. “He’s been our MVP on the mound,” Tar Heel pitching coach Scott Forbes said, “His stability and his consistency have allowed us to change some parts and help our rotation and bullpen come together.” (Wilmington Star News)

Former First Round Pick Levi Michael Still Aiming For The Major Leagues

Levi Michael was selected out of UNC by the Minnesota Twins in the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft. If Michael intends on making a major league debut at some point, finding his way to Triple-A Rochester during the 2015 season should be the goal. At 24 years old, there’s no reason for the Twins to slow play Michael if he can put things together. He could prove to be a useful bench option. (Chattanoogan)

Diamond Heels Starting to Think Big

At 29-16 overall, and 13-10 in the conference, the Diamond Heels currently sit in second place in the ACC Coastal Division and have their sights currently set on hosting an NCAA tournament regional in Chapel Hill—with the team also starting to show why they believe they have the talent to reach the College World Series in Omaha.

This Week With Mike Fox

Inside Carolina had an exclusive interview with head coach Mike Fox while the UNC Baseball team was on a break during final exams. "We gave the players completely off of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - they could come in optional if they wanted to around their exams and reading day. We got back to practice over the weekend Saturday and Sunday." (Inside Carolina)

Playing for Yankees a relief for Andrew Miller

Before the Yankees got to Boston on Thursday for their three-game weekend set with the Red Sox, Andrew Miller made plans to get to the city a little earlier. For two of the three-plus years Miller spent with the Sox, Craig Breslow’s Strike 3 Foundation had thrown his annual “Sip Happens” food and wine tasting to raise money for childhood cancer research, and Miller always had been a supporter. (Boston Globe)

Yankees' closer Andrew Miller making history with perfect save record

Not long after Alex Rodriguez hit his 660th career home run to break a 2-2 tie Friday night at Fenway Park, Yankees' reliever Andrew Miller came into the game and made some history of his own. With a 1-2-3 ninth inning, Miller became the first pitcher in Yankees history to record nine saves in 23 games, a feat not even Mariano Rivera ever accomplished in his illustrious 19- year career.

Mariners need Dustin Ackley to start producing

With right-hander Samuel Deduno getting the start on the mound for the Astros on Friday night against the Mariners, Dustin Ackley was in the starting lineup for the second straight night. But how long will that continue if Ackley doesn’t start producing? (Seattle Times)

Closing role suits Andrew Miller

The beard is long gone, the hair trimmed all the way back and there’s just a wispy brown mustache on the face of Andrew Miller, closer for the Yankees. But Red Sox fans should have no problem recognizing him this weekend, for the rest of the season and for three more years — whether they like it or not. He is simply one of the best relievers in all of baseball right now. (Boston Herald)

Dealing Matt Harvey is somehow nearing the sky-high hype

It’ll take a while longer to accomplish, and that’s not Matt Harvey’s fault. It’s our fault. But it looks doable, and that’s a tribute to the Mets’ young ace. Yes, sooner rather than later, Harvey’s track record might finally catch up to his hype. (New York Post)

Yankees closer Andrew Miller takes the subway to Yankee Stadium

This past offseason the Yankees spent big on a top free agent reliever, but rather than re-sign incumbent closer David Robertson, they signed Andrew Miller to a four-year, $36 million contract. They saved $10 million and gained a draft pick by replacing Miller with Robertson. Miller has been stellar in pinstripes, going 8-for-8 in save chances with 20 strikeouts in only 11 1/3 innings so far this year. (CBS Sports)

Benton Moss, a senior on the baseball team, received the Jim Tatum Memorial Award. Sasha Seymore, a senior on the men’s basketball team, was honored with the Chi Omega Award for Scholarship and Leadership. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels in the Pros: Matt Harvey

Considered to be one of the best young pitchers in the major leagues, Matt Harvey has been on fire this season as a starting pitcher for the New York Mets. He holds a 4-0 record, tied for first in Major League Baseball with his teammate Bartolo Colon and his 3.04 ERA is ranked 12th among pitchers with at least three winning starts this year.
