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)

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.

Mets' Matt Harvey hopes to pitch from mound in one month

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey's recovery from October 2013 Tommy John surgery continues to go well. Harvey was able to throw from 120 feet on flat ground on Friday, and that puts him in line to pitch from a mound on June 10. Obviously, that's a month away, and setbacks are still possible. That said, this suggests that Harvey could hit those "best-case scenario" estimates for his return to the Mets. (CBS Sports)

#4 Florida State visits North Carolina

Diamond Heels persevering through inconsistent season

Believe it or not, North Carolina head coach Mike Fox is thoroughly enjoying his club’s challenging 2014 campaign. The Tar Heels enter this weekend’s Florida State series with a 29-19 overall record, 13-11 ACC mark, which in the eyes of some, might not be perceived as too bad. But from the Tar Heels’ perspective, it’s far from the norm. The season thus far has tested Fox and the Tar Heels to the brink, but they're staying strong. (Perfect Game)
