High Stakes Baseball In Coral Gables

The North Carolina baseball team, 31-21 overall and 14-13 in the ACC, is staring at its final series of the season when taking on the ACC-leading Miami Hurricanes, 38-14 on the season and 22-5 in conference, down in Coral Gables for a three-game set starting Thursday evening at 7 p.m. The Hurricanes, ranked seventh nationally by Baseball America, are the hottest team in the NCAA at the moment.

Kyle Seager is Clutch

Since Kyle Seager started playing full time for the Mariners in 2012, he has become the poster child for what the "clutch" stat was designed to measure. If you take a list of the top 50 clutch players in the last 3 years, Kyle Seager's 2012, 2013, and 2014 rank: 2nd, 11th, and 36th, respectively. He is one of only two players to show up in the top 40 in clutch more than once, and he shows up three times. (Lookout Landing)

Turner's Take: Down the Stretch They Come

Carolina appears to be just inside the NCAA Tournament bubble as of Wednesday morning. A single win at Miami would appear to secure a bid, though a series win or some good work in Greensboro would go a long way toward locking that down. Suffice it to say, the final weekend of ACC play offers a lot of intrigue. The dust is far from settled. (GoHeels.com)

Taylore Cherry tossed six shutout innings and Skye Bolt hit his second home run of the year as North Carolina defeated Gardner-Webb 7-2 Tuesday night at Shelby High School's Veterans Field at Keeter Stadium. (GoHeels.com)

Fans show up in big way for college game between UNC, Gardner-Webb

A quick scan of Keeter Stadium/Veterans Field on Tuesday night showed local baseball fans were plenty interested in the matchup between perennial national power North Carolina and Gardner-Webb. With a crowd similar to those at night games at the American Legion World Series, it was a hot ticket. (Shelby Star)

Behind the scenes with UNC's grounds crew

Casey Carrick fills in the navy blue outlines of C-A-R-O-L-I-N-A with a fine mist of Carolina blue lettering. It’s April 11, and he’s standing in the end zone of the field at Kenan Stadium as the early morning light filters in. There’s only a day until the annual Spring Game, a day that’s just as much a dress rehearsal for the football team as it is for Carrick and the grounds crew. (Carolina Blue)

Numbers Game for UNC Baseball

North Carolina enters its final week of the regular season presumably on the right side of the NCAA Tournament bubble after clinching an ACC Tournament berth on Sunday. Despite losing their fifth series of the season – the program’s most series losses since dropping five in 2010 – the Tar Heels persevered to secure a critical 5-4 win over No. 5 Florida State in the series finale.

Mike Fox Reflective, Re-Energized As Tar Heels Begin Road Trip

The 30-21 North Carolina baseball team, fresh off securing a much-needed win in the series finale against Florida State, will be aiming to close out the regular season strong with a four-game road swing starting Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. when the Tar Heels take on the 23-26 Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs.

Parks Jordan Named ACC Baseball Player of the Week

UNC's Parks Jordan and Miami's Dale Carey have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Players of the Week, while Clemson's Daniel Gossett picked up ACC Pitcher of the Week honors for the second time this season. Jordan hit safely in all five games and finished with 10 hits in 19 at-bats (.526) as the Tar Heels won three games, including a victory over No. 4 Florida State. (GoHeels.com)

This Week With Mike Fox

Inside Carolina caught up with head coach Mike Fox after the Diamond Heels (30-21, 14-13 ACC) recorded a Senior Day win over Florida State and began preparing for the final week of the regular season, which includes a trip to Gardner-Webb on Tuesday and a weekend series at Miami. (Inside Carolina)

Dustin Ackley smacks two more homers

Dustin Ackley has always maintained he isn’t a home-run hitter. But in the last few days, he has sure looked like one. Ackley belted a pair of solo home runs, providing a bright spot in an otherwise frustrating 9-7 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday at Safeco Field. It was his first multihomer game of his career. (Seattle Times)

Monday Baseball Report

All things considered it wasn't a bad week for UNC baseball. A second win against Florida State would have been nice but avoiding the sweep was important as the Heels struggle to stay on the right side of the NCAA bubble. Baseball America's Aaron Fitt continues to show UNC on the "in" side of the NCAA Tournament bubble and the Heels need at least one win against Miami to keep the momentum going. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Seniors Spark Offense

North Carolina picked up their 30th win of the season on Sunday as they defeated No. 5 Florida State 5-4 on Senior Day at Boshamer Stadium. Seniors Parks Jordan and Tom Zengel each drove in a run, as the offense came alive in time to give the Tar Heels a much-needed victory. The 5-4 win gave Fox his sixteenth consecutive winning season and moved the Heels into the fourth in the ACC’s Coastal Division (fifth overall). (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels Beat No. 4 FSU On Senior Day, 5-4

Tyler Ramirez drove in Parks Jordan with a tiebreaking single in the bottom of the seventh, and North Carolina held on for a 5-4 win over No. 4 Florida State Sunday afternoon at Boshamer Stadium. Jordan had two hits and fellow senior Tom Zengel added an RBI double on Senior Day as the Tar Heels picked up win No. 30 and improved to 14-13 in the ACC. (GoHeels.com)

Turner's Take: Backs Against The Wall

Conventional wisdom says Carolina needs at least one win in Coral Gables to strengthen its NCAA Tournament résumé. It’s going to be a tough mountain to climb, but this team has shown it’s capable of playing with anybody. Sunday wins at Virginia and against Florida State proved that Carolina is capable of winning with their backs against the wall. In the last week of the season, they’ll need to do it again.
