Benton Moss grows as UNC baseball loses 3-2 to Virginia

If the North Carolina baseball team had any chance of beating the third-ranked Virginia Cavaliers on Friday, they needed a big outing from starting pitcher Benton Moss. But while the Tar Heels got what they wanted from Moss, they still fell to UVa. 3-2. "I thought Benton was sensational tonight and he certainly pitched well enough to put ourselves in a position to win," coach Mike Fox said. (Daily Tar Heel)

Turner's Take: The Breaks of the Game

Sometimes, the team with the most hits doesn’t score the most runs. Sometimes the team with the best pitching doesn’t get the win. Friday night, that team was Carolina. Such are the breaks of the game. The Tar Heels entered Friday night’s tilt with Virginia needing a win, not only to keep their ACC Tournament title hopes alive, but also looking to bolster their NCAA Tournament hopes. (GoHeels.com)

UNC-Virginia: Mike Fox Postgame Quotes

UNC Baseball coach Mike Fox on the loss to Virginia: "Tough, hard fought loss. Another one-run loss added to our resume, unfortunately. I thought Benton was sensational tonight; pitched well enough to put us in a position to win. Virginia was just so good at taking advantage of our mistakes and getting some big hits. Tough loss for us, we didn’t do enough." (Inside Carolina)

Missed Opportunities for UNC Baseball

A handful of plays prevented No. 7 seed North Carolina from staying alive in its bid to repeat as ACC Tournament champions in its 3-2 loss to Virginia on Friday night. The Tar Heels have one last chance to build its resume before the NCAA Tournament Selection Show on Monday. UNC dropped to No. 45 in the RPI following Friday’s loss and is currently 13-20 against the RPI Top-100. (Inside Carolina)

Wood Myers hit his first career home run as part of a four-hit night but North Carolina fell to No. 2 Virginia 3-2 Friday night at NewBridge Bank Park in the second game of Pool B play at the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Championship.

ACC Tournament Preview: #7 UNC vs #3 Virginia

Mike Fox will send Benton Moss to the mound. Moss faced Virginia on April 19th going 7.2 innings giving up three runs on three hits and a trio of walks. He also struck out six in UNC's 3-1 loss to the Cavaliers. The bottom line is UNC still has plenty to play for and needs wins even if said wins don't necessarily get them to Sunday's title game.

Colin Moran: a top prospect from a baseball family

Baseball runs in Colin Moran’s family. His uncle, B.J. Surhoff, had a 19-year Big League career with the Milwaukee Brewers, Baltimore Orioles and Atlanta Braves. His older brother Brian is a left-handed pitcher in the Seattle Mariners organization. Colin has potential to be the best of the three, and he is already considered one of the Miami Marlins’ top prospects. (TC Palm)

Mets’ Matt Harvey Needs To Be Quiet — Now

Is Matt Harvey the best young pitcher in baseball or a self-indulgent child who needs to wait his turn? He’s both, it appears. Harvey landed on the mound like a meteor. He dazzled the masses with a fastball that we haven’t seen in our city since another Met, Doc Gooden, came on the scene 30 years ago. He’s not as good as Gooden, but he’s close enough. And he needs to be quiet. (CBS New York)

Kyle Seager working to beat the shift

Kyle Seager knows the way to beat a shift is to show opposing teams he can hit the ball down the left-field line when he wants, so the Mariners third baseman took a couple shots that direction in his first two at-bats in Tuesday's 6-2 victory over the Rangers. Manager Lloyd McClendon said Seager has begun working the ball better to the opposite field and believes that will pay off. (MLB.com)

Pitching Preservation

Despite losing to No. 2 seed Florida State on Wednesday night, No. 7 seed North Carolina positioned itself well for the remainder of Pool B play in the ACC Tournament. Entering Wednesday’s pool play opener, the Tar Heels had played 43 innings of baseball in just under a week against some very stiff competition in Miami and N.C. State. (Inside Carolina)

Turner's Take: Moving Forward

After getting past NC State in an ACC Tournament play-in game, Carolina dropped a 7-1 decision to Florida State on Wednesday. The second-seeded Seminoles used a four-run fourth inning and a terrific start from left-hander Billy Strode to put the Tar Heels away. But Carolina has games Friday against Virginia and Saturday against Maryland to try to improve their NCAA Tournament résumé. (GoHeels.com)

UNC-Florida State: Mike Fox Postgame Quotes

Speaking of the NCAA Tournament, do you feel like your team is in? Or what side of the bubble do you think you’re on? “I don’t know. I’m trying not to think about it. We’ve got to compete better and we’ve got to try to win a couple of more games here in the tournament. Not being smart, but we’re either going to be in or out. And if we’re out, it’s going to be our own doing.” (Inside Carolina)

ACC Tournament: FSU 7 UNC 1

Not really UNC's year against Florida State. For the third time in four games this season against the Seminoles, UNC gave up seven or more runs while scratching out two or fewer on the way to a 7-1 loss in the first game of ACC Tournament pool play. Taylore Cherry got the start and held it together until fourth when FSU broke a 1-0 game open with four runs. (Tar Heel Blog)
