This Week With Mike Fox

After sweeping BC - the first ACC sweep of the season in the midst of a 35-inning streak of not giving up an earned run - what are your takeaways from the weekend series? Mike Fox: "Our pitching this week was sensational and certainly this weekend with Zac [Gallen], J.B. [Bukauskas] and Benton [Moss] just went out there and pitched at the highest level." (Inside Carolina)

Trio of starting pitchers lift North Carolina to three-game sweep of Boston College

Benton Moss crossed his fingers. “We’re like this,” he said with a smile on his face. The “we” Moss was referring to was North Carolina (29-15, 13-10 ACC) baseball’s starting rotation of freshman J.B. Bukauskas, sophomore Zac Gallen and himself. This was the same starting rotation that dominated Boston College (22-21, 9-14 ACC) over the weekend, sweeping the three game series while not allowing a single earned run in 24 innings.

Q&A with Andrew Miller

Q: New York doesn’t seem to intimidate you? A: I think probably nothing can compare to New York, but if anything’s close, it’s gonna be Boston, when it comes to the spotlight and expectation for the fans and all that kinda stuff. … I like it. (New York Post)

Starting Pitching Powers UNC Sweep of BC

No. 18 North Carolina received dominant performances from all three starting pitchers against Boston College in securing its first ACC sweep of the season. “The last three days we’ve pitched really, really well,” UNC head coach Mike Fox said after Sunday’s 6-0 win. “I am trying to think of a weekend where we’ve pitched a whole weekend without giving up an earned run, and I can’t think of one.” (Inside Carolina)

Matt Harvey’s Pinstriped Dream Leads to Dominant Show in Mets Blue

The scene that unfolded Saturday at Yankee Stadium was, in a strange way, perhaps close to what Matt Harvey, the Mets’ ace, had imagined as a child, as a Yankees fan, playing catch with his father. By the ninth inning, the crowd had thinned out and was mostly Mets fans, but they chanted his name and cheered when he struck out Alex Rodriguez on a 98-mile-an-hour fastball. (New York Times)

Matt Harvey goes into Yankee Stadium, dominates

New York Mets starter Matt Harvey didn’t quite get to finish what he started Saturday, but he continued an impressive recovery from Tommy John surgery nonetheless. Harvey came within an out of the first complete-game win by a Met in the Subway Series since Dave Mlicki had one in the first meeting of the teams in 1997. (ESPN.com)

Matt Harvey’s dream come true is exact antidote Mets need

Matt Harvey waited his entire life for this start. He was going to make the most of it. So before he fired his first pitch Saturday at Yankee Stadium, Harvey stepped off the mound. He walked 20 feet back on the grass toward second base. He looked at the crowd of 47,909, canvassing the area above the Yankees dugout. Harvey took a deep breath, took it all in and went to work. The Yankees never had a chance. (New York Post)

No. 18 Carolina Downs Boston College, 6-1

J.B. Bukauskas worked seven scoreless innings as No. 18 North Carolina beat visiting Boston College 6-1 Saturday at a rainy Boshamer Stadium. Landon Lassiter had two doubles and all nine starters reached base for the Tar Heels. Carolina will send Benton Moss to the hill in Sunday's finale searching for its first ACC sweep since last year against Virginia Tech. (GoHeels.com)

Like his manager, Mike Scioscia, Angels reliever Mike Morin not really into role playing

Angels reliever Mike Morin is 23, about to turn 24. When he was coming into his baseball fandom in the early 2000s, he thought each team had one closer and just a bunch of nameless other relievers without roles. As he aged, as some ballclubs had delineated men for each of a game’s final four innings, Morin learned that viewpoint was incorrect. And now he’s learning it might have been wrongly accurate, in a way. (Orange County Register)
