Zac Gallen Named ACC Pitcher Of The Week

UNC’s Zac Gallen and Virginia’s Connor Jones were selected as ACC Co-Pitchers of the Week. Gallen struck out a career-high 13 batters and faced just three more than the minimum in a four-hit complete-game shutout win over Virginia Tech on Friday. His 13 strikeouts were the most by a Tar Heel since Matt Harvey struck out 15 at Clemson in 2010. (GoHeels.com)

Newcomer Adam Warren provides a bridge in Cubs' 4-2 win

As well as Kyle Hendricks pitched Saturday night in his 2016 debut, manager Joe Maddon couldn't take any more chances after Brandon Drury hit a double with two out in the seventh inning. So Maddon called upon Adam Warren to preserve a two-run lead in his Chicago Cubs debut. (Chicago Tribune)

Being a Moran is not an Insult

Colin Moran is a third baseman knocking on the door for a big league job. He seems to be flying under the radar, but he will likely make his debut this year and have more of an impact than many expect, if not this year, then certainly by next year. This is the sort of prospect who can sneak up on you and then, oops, end up having a solid 12 year career. (Fake Teams)

Yankees' Andrew Miller, UNC alum, on NCAA title game, basketball memories

Andrew Miller grew up in Gainesville, Fla., loving the Florida Gators, but he's been bleeding Tar Heel blue since starring at UNC in baseball from 2004-06. "I watch every Carolina game I can and this was a fun team to watch," he said. "Actually, the last two or three teams were fun. It's hard not to root for (UNC guard) Marcus Paige." (NJ.com)

Seven Tar Heels Open 2016 On MLB Rosters

Seven former North Carolina baseball standouts began the 2016 Major League Baseball season this week.

Here's a look at the current crop of UNC big leaguers: (GoHeels.com)

Catcher Chris Iannetta off to strong start for Mariners

Chris Iannetta came to the plate three times in the opening-day loss to the Rangers on Monday. And all three times he reached base, notching two singles and a walk in his first game as a Mariner. Iannetta knows he’s been a slow starter — hitting .093 in April last season. He’s hoping a good start with a new team could spur a bounce-back season. (Seattle Times)

Matt Harvey getting amped before Opening Night

Matt Harvey calls it an “out-of-body experience,” though he’s not quite sure that’s exactly right either. Regardless of the precise sensation, the point he’s trying to make is clear. There are times when he takes the mound for the Mets and something happens to him. He can’t explain it. But there is no doubt that he senses it. (Newsday)
