J.B. Bukauskas thriving in first season at North Carolina

During his three years of varsity baseball at Stone Bridge High School, right-handed pitcher J.B. Bukauskas found that when he needed to get an out, he just reared back and fired his 95 mile per hour fastball past the hitter. Bukauskas is learning that is not always the case at the collegiate level. But he is adapting quickly as a freshman at UNC and is finding success with the Tar Heels. (Inside NoVa)

For Bob Gersten, 94, It's Always a Good Day for a Walk

Bob Gersten ’42 has enough memories for several lifetimes, and while he likes to reminisce, at 94 years old he also likes to live in the here and now — and plan for the future. Gersten, the oldest living former UNC baseball and basketball player, hosted the inaugural “Walk for Health” Saturday, where about 75 people walked the mile from the tennis courts behind Cobb dorm to the parking lot of the UNC System’s headquarters on Raleigh Road.

Positives Building For UNC Baseball

With both teams looking to make a late-season climb in the standings and a bunch of young players looking to become a part of a storied history, a packed Boshamer Stadium served as the perfect backdrop for a rivalry renewed. “It raises the adrenaline,” UNC reliever Trent Thornton said after striking out a career-high 12 batters on Sunday. “It is awesome having a lot of fans come support you, especially in a rivalry game like this. It’s a lot of fun.” (Inside Carolina)

Emotions boil on both sides as Tar Heels squeak past Wolfpack in 10th inning

North Carolina freshman third baseman Zack Gahagan was part of a walkoff situation for the first time in his baseball career, in his second game against North Carolina State.

Yankees' Adam Warren makes strong 1st impression vs. Boston Red Sox

Not a bad first impression. Yankees starting pitcher Adam Warren gave his club a stellar outing Saturday against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium Saturday afternoon. But when he left, he was trailing. And though he shared some of the blame, the Yankees would take that type of performance from any of their starters right now. Perhaps most especially from Warren. (NJ.com)
