Kyle Datres pays attention to pitchers in UNC baseball's 7-6 win over Coastal Carolina

A warm Tuesday night at Boshamer Stadium had drawn 1,925. And over 100 dogs were sitting in the left-field bleachers — they had made the trip for the Bark at The Bosh event. A nice crowd, to say the least, for North Carolina’s tight 7-6 win. On the field, things were even better. No. 8 UNC held a 4-2 lead against defending champion Coastal Carolina. (Daily Tar Heel)

No. 7 UNC Baseball Tops Coastal Coastal, 7-6

Kyle Datres homered and drove in three runs to lead No. 7 UNC to a 7-6 win over Coastal Carolina Tuesday at Boshamer Stadium. Cody Roberts added an RBI double in the eighth that proved to be the game-winner when the Chanticleers rallied to put the tying run on second in the ninth. Brett Daniels picked up his third relief win in as many appearances for the Tar Heels. (GoHeels.com)

Back from World Baseball Classic, Andrew Miller has lot of work to do

Andrew Miller returned to Arizona with a sense of pride over Team USA's championship run in the World Baseball Classic. The Indians' lefty relief ace also rejoined Cleveland's camp unsatisfied with how he has thrown the ball the past two weeks. Over the remaining days of Spring Training, Miller plans on fine-tuning his fastball and slider in preparation for the season. (MLB.com)

UNC in control as college baseball season nears mid-point

Nearly halfway through the college baseball regular season the news isn’t great for the two Triangle programs that earned NCAA tournament regional bids in 2016, while it’s better for the one that didn’t.

Diamond Heels Fall Short of a Sweep, Miami Takes Sunday Series Finale

As well as the 10th-ranked UNC baseball has played in the early portion of the ACC season–winning each of its first three series against conference opponents–the Tar Heels have yet to secure a series sweep. The Miami Hurricanes kept that streak alive Sunday afternoon with a 6-2 victory at Boshamer Stadium, scoring more runs than any team has all season against the dominant UNC pitching staff.

Peter Gammons: Daniel Bard is willing to endure the frustration

What is remarkable about Daniel Bard seven weeks from his 32nd birthday is that for all he has gone through from Boston to Pawtucket to Lowell and stints with the Rangers, Cubs, Pirates and now Cardinals is that this man who could be successful at whatever he chose is still willing to walk out there and face frustration and the humiliation of “The Thing.” (Gammons Daily)

Kyle Seager a steady productive presence for Mariners

Kyle Seager is starting to feel like one of the old guys in the Seattle Mariners clubhouse. That has nothing to do with his age — the third baseman is only 29. It's just that he's been such a constant with the Mariners, now going into his seventh season with the team that drafted him. "I think from when I got here, it's just me and Felix...the only two left basically." (Associated Press)

UNC Baseball Picks Up Convincing Win in Series Opener vs. Miami

Ranked No. 10 in this week’s D1Baseball.com Top 25, the UNC baseball team has sprinted out to a hot start behind a group of pitchers who seem completely uninterested in allowing opponents to score. That trend continued at Boshamer Stadium on Friday–with the Tar Heels also receiving some offense to match–during UNC’s 7-2 series-opening victory over the Miami Hurricanes. (Chapelboro.com)

Weekly walk-up: UNC pitcher Luca Dalatri discusses his song choice
