Tar Heels, Bukauskas back on top

It’s Crunch Time with a capital “CT” in the college baseball regular season. And with eight games on their schedule between last Friday (April 21) and this Sunday (April 30), the North Carolina Tar Heels haven’t had a lot of time to sit back and reflect on what they’ve accomplished over the first two-plus months of the 2017 college baseball season. Nor do they want to. (Perfect Game)

No. 3 UNC Baseball Stymies Campbell, 7-1

Logan Warmoth and Zack Gahagan combined for five doubles to lead No. 3 North Carolina to a 7-1 win over Campbell Wednesday at Boshamer Stadium. Five Tar Heel pitchers teamed up to hold the Camels to one run on three hits as UNC won its fourth straight game against Campbell. The Tar Heels host No. 3 Clemson for three games starting Friday at 6:30 p.m. (GoHeels.com)

Josh Hiatt Named To Stopper Of The Year Watch List

40 of college baseball's top relief pitchers have been named to the Midseason Watch List for the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Award. UNC redshirt freshman Josh Hiatt, who is tied for the ACC lead with 12 saves, is among the candidates. Hiatt has a 1.39 ERA in 23 appearances. Opponents are hitting a paltry .143 against him.

UNC proving to be the class of the Triangle on the Diamond

The Tar Heels welcome No. 6 Clemson to Chapel Hill, part of an eight-game homestand, for what should be a thrilling series, as the Tigers bring a strong offense led by sophomore Seth Beer plus a pitching staff that leads the ACC with 396 strikeouts and is vastly improved from last season, when Clemson nonetheless won the league tournament and was a national seed.

Ashton McGee amazes with diving catch in UNC baseball's win over Elon

UNC’s sports turf crew had battled Chapel Hill’s incessant drizzle just enough for the 6 p.m. first pitch. Maybe caked was the right word for the dirt — something cleats sink into just enough to annoy a player, making every cut just a little bit slower. That didn’t stop Ashton McGee from making the play of the game in the Tar Heels’ 11-2 win. (Daily Tar Heel)

Logan Warmoth Powering UNC's Bats

North Carolina shortstop Logan Warmoth has led the Tar Heel offense all season long, leading the team in batting average (.345), slugging percentage (.560), on base percentage (.425), runs scored (40), hits (59) and home runs (7). His proficiency at the plate has earned him a spot on the midseason Golden Spikes Award watch list. (Inside Carolina)

No. 3 UNC Baseball Rolls Past Elon, 11-2

Brian Miller had four hits and No. 3 UNC improved to 32-9 with an 11-2 win over Elon Tuesday at Boshamer Stadium. Brandon Riley clubbed his second three-run homer in as many games and the Tar Heels cruised to their 13th straight victory over the Phoenix. Miller, Riley, Ashton McGee and Tyler Lynn had multi-hit games for UNC on a night when all nine starters either scored or drove in a run. (GoHeels.com)

No. 3 UNC Baseball Hosts Elon, Campbell Midweek

No. 3 North Carolina opens a eight-game homestand with a pair of midweek contests against Elon and Campbell Tuesday and Wednesday at Boshamer Stadium. UNC is 31-9 after winning two of three at Pitt to secure its seventh consecutive series victory. Elon dropped two of three to Delaware last weekend to fall to 19-21 on the year. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels Celebrate At Rammy Awards

UNC Athletics celebrated the successes of the past year at the fifth-annual Rammy Awards Monday at Memorial Hall in the center of campus.

This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

The No. 3-ranked Tar Heels won their seventh ACC series at Pittsburgh after a mid-week loss to Liberty.

Coach Mike Fox’s squad won its seventh consecutive ACC series over the weekend. (Chapelboro.com)

No. 3 UNC Baseball Falls in Series Finale to Pitt, 11-9

Brian Miller had two doubles and a home run for UNC, but the host Panthers scored 10 straight runs after falling behind early and held on for the victory. (GoHeels.com)

Tyler Ramirez a good fit for the Oakland A's

Tyler Ramirez is used to being challenged. As a freshman, he suited up for 58 games in the outfield for ACC powerhouse UNC. He hit .286 that season, earning a permanent spot in the Tar Heels’ starting line-up for the next two seasons. Now in his first full professional season, Ramirez is the new kid starting on a veteran team once again as a member of the High-A Stockton Ports. (Oakland Clubhouse)

Gianluca Dalatri Dazzles In Diamond Heels' 3-1 Win At Pitt

Gianluca Dalatri outdueled Josh Falk to earn his third straight win as No. 3 North Carolina clinched its seventh consecutive series with a 3-1 victory over Pittsburgh Saturday. Dalatri pitched a career-best 8.2 innings and allowed just three hits on a day when offense was at a premium. Brandon Riley broke up Falk's no-hitter in the eighth and scored on a wild pitch. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Catcher Cody Roberts Added to Johnny Bench Award Watch List

North Carolina sophomore catcher Cody Roberts had his name added to the Watch List for the Johnny Bench Award on Friday–an honor given annually to the top Division I catcher in America.
