Levi Michael starting to look like a prospect for Twins

This season he's finally looking like a prospect. He's now in his age-23 season, and he's still in Fort Myers, but we're 30 games into the season and he's batting .322/.379/.432. His walk rates are down, but the strikeout rates have been nearly cut in half since last season, and when you're hitting .322 it's not a requirement to walk more than 9.8% of the time.

UNC baseball executes with runners on base against Maryland

What a difference a day makes. Friday night the North Carolina baseball team was given multiple opportunities to score and couldn't get the hits they needed against the Virginia Cavaliers, losing 3-2.

UNC-Maryland: Mike Fox Postgame Quotes

"We’re ecstatic to have won that ball game. It wasn’t easy. Maryland is just playing so well. We knew the game wasn’t over. You have to give them a lot of credit for coming back and the resiliency of our team for coming back. It’s pretty deflating, obviously, to lose that kind of lead, but I’m proud of our guys for coming back and winning. It was obviously a big win for us." (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels' Bats Come Alive

North Carolina’s offense tied their highest run total of the season and scored six in the eighth inning to break a 7-7 tie and defeat a red-hot Maryland team in the ACC Tournament on Saturday. Maryland had very little to play for having already locked up their spot in the ACC Championship game on Sunday. UNC, on the other hand, needed a win to improve its postseason chances.

ACC Tournament: UNC 13 Maryland 7

In what was a totally meaningless game for Maryland, UNC jumped out to a 7-2 lead before surrendering five runs in the seventh. The Heels bounced back to score six runs in the 8th to take their final game of ACC Tournament pool play 13-7. UNC finishes the ACC Tournament 1-2 in pool play with losses to Virginia and Florida State. (Tar Heel Blog)

Turner's Take: Bouncing Back

It could have been disastrous. Carolina led Maryland 7-2 when the seventh inning began and looked to hand a loss to one of the two teams qualified for the ACC Tournament title game. Then, all of a sudden, the Terrapins took advantage of their own timely hitting and some Tar Heel fielding miscues to knot the score. (GoHeels.com)

UNC playing Maryland with NCAA positioning in mind

UNC cannot play for the ACC title, but that does not mean they don’t have a lot to play for Saturday when they face off against Maryland in their ACC tournament finale. Believed to be on the inside of the tournament bubble, UNC could bolster their resume against the Terps who own the nation’s second longest win streak at 11 games (Canisius – 18). (WRAL Sports Fan)

ACC Tournament Preview: #7 UNC vs #6 Maryland

A win versus Virginia would have been a major salve for the Tar Heels' bubble woes. As it turns out UNC has just the possibility of beating Maryland has their last, best hope to bolster the Heels' NCAA Tournament resume. The Terps are projected at #23 in the RPI so a UNC would have some value. Mike Fox will send freshman Zac Gallen to the mound in hopes of grabbing a desperately needed win. (Tar Heel Blog)

Virginia ends UNC ACC Tournament title game hopes

North Carolina’s quest for a second straight ACC Tournament title is over. Now the Tar Heels can worry about extending their streak of 12 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. UNC missed a chance to cement its NCAA Tournament bid with a 3-2 loss to Virginia, the No. 1 team in the RPI, Friday night in NewBridge Bank Park. (Durham Herald-Sun)

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)
