North Carolina Misses ACC Baseball Tournament

UNC entered Saturday’s rubber match against N.C. State controlling its own destiny. Win, and you get to play in the ACC Tournament.

How did we get here with Mets’ Matt Harvey?

If the Mets could do it all over again, knowing what they know now, after seeing Matt Harvey utterly come apart this season, would they have chosen to shut him down early last September? Or is that merely a smokescreen, an alibi born of convenience, a way of covering for a pitcher unable to fend for himself? (Newsday)

Tar Heels Fail to Convert Early

Despite chasing N.C. State starting pitcher Cory Wilder in the first inning, North Carolina failed to generate enough offense in dropping its series opener, 6-4, at Doak Field on Thursday. “We had a chance to be ahead more than 2-0,” head coach Mike Fox said after the loss. “I think it would have put a lot of pressure on them."

Bryce Harper may be baseball’s next great star, but he still can’t hit Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey has had a rocky start to the season. Luckily for the Dark Knight, he can always count on one man to help break him out of a slump, reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper. Harvey has repeatedly had the three-time All-Star's number. Harper is hitless in 20 career at-bats against the Mets pitcher, striking out seven times. (New York Daily News)

Logan Warmoth tied a career-high with four hits for the Tar Heels, who grabbed an early two-run lead but left the tying runs on base in the ninth in falling to 33-20 and 12-16 in the ACC.

Matt Harvey is a mess, and here’s the Mets’ diagnosis

On a chilly April night in 2013, about when a “Harvey Day” became a can’t-miss city event, Matt Harvey out-pitched Washington’s resident stud, Stephen Strasburg. Mets fans, not afraid to share their opinions, unleashed a Citi Field chorus of “Harvey’s Better! Harvey’s Better!” Now, three years and one month later, Harvey and Strasburg are scheduled to match fastball and breaking stuff again at Citi Field on Thursday. (New York Post)

Tar Heel baseball holds more desperate plight than Wolfpack

UNC’s baseball team continues to envision the chance to make something special of the season. “Everything is still in play for us,” coach Mike Fox said. “I try not to put too much pressure on them.” Some of that is bound to be evident beginning Thursday in Raleigh, where the Tar Heels embark on a three-game series against NC State to wrap up the ACC regular season.

No. 17 Diamond Heels Head To Raleigh To Close Regular Season

UNC Baseball Facing “Do-or-Die” Scenario Against NC State

It all comes down to this for the UNC baseball team. Three games in Raleigh against its fiercest rival—the No. 13 NC State Wolfpack—with its season on the line. Currently sitting ninth in the tight ACC standings—tied with Duke and just one game ahead in the win column over Boston College and Notre Dame—the Tar Heels find themselves in a bit of a tricky position, able to finish anywhere between fifth and 13th.
