Yankees' Andrew Miller doesn't change approach as closer

For years, Andrew Miller has heard the old cliché about being a closer: The last three outs are the hardest to get. That hasn’t been the case for the 29-year-old, who is settling in nicely as the Yankees’ closer — even if he hasn’t actually been anointed with that title by Joe Girardi. (New York Daily News)

Pitching struggles hurt UNC in series against Virginia Tech

Coming into the team’s series against Virginia Tech (19-21, 8-12 ACC), the Tar Heels’ (24-15, 10-10 ACC) normal weekend starters — Zac Gallen, J.B. Bukauskas and Benton Moss — had combined for an overall record of 9-3 and an ERA of 2.95. But after a powerful Hokie lineup hit both Gallen and Bukauskas, UNC found itself in an unfamiliar position and had to rely on unconventional methods to salvage splitting the series with Virginia Tech, 3-8 and 11-10.

Matt Harvey battles illness, but doesn't miss start

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey had an alibi for Sunday's mediocre performance, at least as judged by his lofty standards. Harvey had been sick for a couple of days. The illness deprived him of sleep and the ability to comfortably swallow. (ESPN.com)

Andrew Miller is already the Yankees closer

Let's not kid ourselves here; Andrew Miller is the Yankees closer, even if no one will say that he has the job. At the moment, Miller has two saves, nine strikeouts, and has only allowed one hit, walked two, and hit a batter in 5.0 innings this year. (Pinstripe Alley)

UNC-Virginia Tech game cancelled

With the rain currently falling and the expectaions of it not letting up for some time, the Virginia Tech baseball team's game with visiting North Carolina has been cancelled. The ACC series ends tied at one win for each team. (Hokie Sports)

The Powerful Dustin Ackley, Revisited

Back in November, I examined the improvements Ackley made down the stretch in 2014. In short, last year Ackley improved his production off fly balls by pulling the ball with more authority and distance. Through nine games, we’ve seen Ackley build off those improvements he made last year. (Lookout Landing)

South Carolina's Chad Holbrook steps up for student with dwarfism

Driving in the car a few days after Christmas, South Carolina coach Chad Holbrook noticed his wife, Jennifer, crying as she read something on her phone. He asked what was wrong, and she began to share the story published by The State newspaper on Blaire Epting, the Hammond School senior who received the thrill of a lifetime when he scored a touchdown on Senior Night.

No. 18 Diamond Heels Outlast Hokies, 11-10

Brian Miller's sacrifice fly in the eighth scored Elijah Sutherland to break a 10-10 tie and No. 18 North Carolina held on for a wild 11-10 win over Virginia Tech Saturday at English Field. Trent Thornton allowed just one run in 4.1 innings of relief to get the win for the Tar Heels, who were out-hit 14-7 but did just enough to win for the 27th time in 29 meetings since the Hokies joined the ACC.

Hokies Power Past No. 18 UNC Baseball, 8-3

Alex Perez and Brendon Hayden homered in a five-run sixth as Virginia Tech beat No. 18 North Carolina 8-3 Friday at English Field. Kit Scheetz limited UNC to three runs over seven strong innings as the Hokies beat the Tar Heels for the first time since 2007. Landon Lassiter had three hits and drove in a run for the Tar Heels, who will send J.B. Bukauskas to the mound Saturday. (GoHeels.com)

Yankees reliever Andrew Miller says time with Orioles was 'most fun I've ever had playing baseball'

When New York Yankees left-hander Andrew Miller took the mound in the eighth inning Monday with one on, one out and his club clinging to a one-run lead, he wasn't nostalgic. He wasn't considering that the guys in the batter's box were his teammates just a few short months ago. (Baltimore Sun)

No. 18 Tar Heels Back On The Road At Virginia Tech

North Carolina returns to Atlantic Coast Conference competition Friday at 5:30 p.m. when the Tar Heels visit Virginia Tech for the first of a three-game series at English Field.

The Tar Heels are currently tied for second in the ACC Coastal at 9-9 after taking two of three from NC State last weekend in Chapel Hill. (GoHeels.com)

Virginia Tech baseball faces off against UNC in three-game weekend series

Virginia Tech baseball is back in Blacksburg this weekend after being swept last weekend by the University of Miami. This time, the Hokies will face off against the University of North Carolina in a three-game series at English Field. The NCAA RPI rankings have the Tar Heels listed as the 16th-best team in the country, however, the USA Today coach’s poll doesn’t have them ranked. (Collegiate Times)
