Which Schools Have The Most Big Leaguers?

When it comes to which school has the most current big leaguers, Arizona State holds the crown with 11 thanks to Dustin Pedroia, Jason Kipnis, Ike Davis, Kole Calhoun and a number of utility infielders. North Carolina was third with nine: Kyle Seager, Matt Harvey, Dustin Ackley and Andrew Miller were the most notable former Tar Heels in Major League Baseball. (Baseball America)

Michael Russell thrives in leadoff spot

He’d only done it once, maybe twice, in about three years. Typically a middle-of-the-order hitter, North Carolina junior shortstop Michael Russell and the leadoff batting spot were unfamiliar acquaintances. But with the Tar Heels desperate for a spark after a six-game losing streak, coach Mike Fox decided to shuffle the deck. (Daily Tar Heel)

Bogucki, Tar Heels Blank Aggies, 10-0

A.J. Bogucki carried a no-hitter into the seventh in his first career start and North Carolina topped N.C. A&T 10-0 Tuesday evening at Boshamer Stadium. Bogucki, Trevor Kelley and Jack Geraghty combined on the one-hit shutout, while Michael Russell went 4 for 4 to lead the Tar Heel offense. Bogucki lowered his ERA from 4.91 to 1.69 in seven shutout innings. (GoHeels.com)

Angels' reliever Brian Moran to have Tommy John surgery

Los Angeles Angels reliever Brian Moran will undergo Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow and is expected to miss the rest of the season. The Angels announced Moran's diagnosis on Tuesday. The club was hopeful he could be a key lefty in coming out of the bullpen after the Angels selected Moran in December's winter meeting draft from Toronto. (Associated Press)

This Week With Mike Fox

Mike Fox: “It was overall a good week for us. Certainly to rebound from our previous week and to have a big mid-week win against a good Wilmington club and the series in Boston was challenging on many fronts with the travel and the weather. We were pleased certainly to win the series but disappointed in letting the Saturday game get away from us.” (Inside Carolina)

Diamond Heels Gear Up For Critical Five-Game Homestand

The UNC baseball team, 18-13 on the year, opens a five-game homestand Tuesday evening at Boshamer Stadium. The Diamond Heels aim to build off the momentum of a road series ACC win over Boston College last weekend. The Diamond Heels are a work in progress this season. But after struggling through a six-game losing streak, UNC has rebounded with wins in three of the last four outings. (Chapelboro.com)

Monday Baseball Report

The Tar Heels offense picked up steam, even if it was against two teams with losing records. Carolina cranked out 51 hits in the four games and scored 37 runs. The defensive and pitching lapses are still troublesome as UNC starts getting into the meat of the ACC schedule and, in this particular week, five games in six days. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Baseball Thumps Boston College, 12-2

Zac Gallen and Reilly Hovis combined to allow just two runs on five hits and No. 30 Carolina pounded out 16 hits as the Tar Heels scored a series-clinching 12-2 win over Boston College Sunday at Commander Shea Field. Michael Russell reached five times and scored three runs, Parks Jordan and Landon Lassiter each drove in three and Carolina won its second road series of 2014. (GoHeels.com)

Diamond Heels Drop 10-9 Decision At Boston College

Blake Butera singled home Nick Colucci in the bottom of the ninth and Boston College rallied for a stunning 10-9 win over North Carolina Saturday at Commander Shea Field. Carolina led 8-3 after six but BC scored seven times in the final three innings to even the three-game series. Michael Russell had three hits and drove in three runs to lead the Tar Heels. (GoHeels.com)

Thornton Deals Complete Game Shutout In Win At Boston College

Trent Thornton tossed a three-hit shutout and No. 30 North Carolina topped Boston College 7-0 in the series opener Friday afternoon at Commander Shea Field. Tom Zengel drove in five runs to lead an 11-hit effort for the Tar Heels, who snapped a five-game Atlantic Coast Conference losing streak. (GoHeels.com)

Turner's Take: The Zengel Life

Stick with the process. That’s been the mantra that has carried Carolina baseball to six of the last eight College World Series under Mike Fox. It’s been the modus operandi for winning seasons. No single Tar Heel has lived out that mantra quite like Tom Zengel, a senior whose career arc has been unusual but remarkable over the course of three and a half years. (GoHeels.com)

Marlins prospect Colin Moran to miss three weeks

Marlins prospect Colin Moran, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, is expected to miss about three weeks because of a left knee injury. While the left-handed-hitting third baseman will open the season on the Minor League disabled list with a medial collateral ligament sprain, it appears he has avoided a more serious situation. (MLB.com)

Q&A: Michael Russell

North Carolina shortstop Michael Russell is one of the Diamond Heels' most energetic players, and with a roster stocked full of underclassmen, the Charlotte native is doing his best to lead the team through the difficult ACC. "I try to lead by example and I say stuff when something needs to be said, but it's more of just trying to do what guys have done who were here before me." (GoHeels.com)

Hovis key for UNC in win vs. UNC-W

The sputtering North Carolina baseball team was in need of a bounce-back performance against UNC-Wilmington Tuesday night after losing six straight. What it didn’t need was a first-inning 2-0 deficit, with the Seahawks threatening to add more, when they loaded the bases in the fourth inning, leading 2-1. Enter sophomore relief pitcher Reilly Hovis. (Daily Tar Heel)

Diamond Heels Break Out In 9-4 Win

No. 30 North Carolina snapped a six-game losing streak with a 9-4 win over visiting UNCW Tuesday night at Boshamer Stadium. Tom Zengel drove in three runs and eight different Tar Heels had hits as Carolina improved to 16-12 on the year. Skye Bolt and Adrian Chacon both homered in a three-run sixth that broke open a tight contest. (GoHeels.com)
