Florida State overwhelms Tar Heels

Don't blame it on a weather-forced doubleheader at Miami. Don't blame it on a depleted bullpen. For North Carolina coach Mike Fox, Florida State simply played better baseball in the Seminoles 7-1 win in Wednesday's opening game of Pool B play in the ACC Tournament. "It's very typical of how they beat you," he said. "They pitch well. They don't give you any opportunities. They take advantage." (Carolina Blue)

Taylore Cherry allowed six runs in 5.1 innings for the Tar Heels, who will next face third-seeded Virginia Friday night at 7. (GoHeels.com)

Florida State and North Carolina: Tourney Preview

The Seminoles played extremely well the first time they faced the Tar Heels less than two weeks ago.

Florida State is in good position today because of the tight four hour game that the Heels played yesterday to advance. (Tomahawk Nation)

FSU baseball opens up ACC tournament against North Carolina

The Tar Heels (33-23) are the reigning ACC champs, but barely squeaked past NC State in Tuesday’s elimination game. North Carolina, the seventh seed, won 4-3. With a strong pitching staff and bullpen – the Tar Heels have a 2.92 team ERA, the second best ERA in the ACC – UNC could give FSU problems. (Orlando Sentinel)

Chansky: Game Gone To The Dogs

The Wolfpack, a preseason top-10 pick, watched its season end before the dog days of summer while the Tar Heels lived to have Miss Babe fetch their bats for three more ACC tourney games, beginning Wednesday night at 7 against Florida State. Win one, and the Heels are probably back in the NCAAs for a longshot return to the College World Series. (Chapelboro.com)

State (32-23) in Tuesday afternoon's ACC Tournament play-in game. "That was what I wanted," said Thornton of closing the game. (Carolina Blue)

UNC-NC State: Mike Fox Postgame Quotes

Turner's Take: One Pitch at a Time

With the bases loaded in the eighth inning, up a run against NC State, Carolina handed the baseball to Trent Thornton. Thornton is not totally new to a relief role; he was the Tar Heels’ closer a year ago, but after becoming the team’s Friday starter in 2014, he hadn’t made an appearance out of the bullpen all year long. But then, extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary measures. (GoHeels.com)

State is going to throw in their direction. (Carolina Blue)
