Baseball won 3 to 2 today to salvage the series.
There were some lineup shakeups on offense. Hitting was better today than it had been. Nic Kent’s 2 run homer to make it 3 to 0 proved to be the game winner.
Pitching was excellent as it’s been nearly the entire season.
Mike Vasil was excellent in his start for the second weekend in a row (No runs in 6 IP, no runs allowed this year in 12.1 IP, got the win today to go 2-0).
Stephen Schoch game in during the 8th with 2 outs and struck out UNC’s best hitter with a runner on 2nd. The hitter was hitting almost .600 for the season at that point. Then he worked a flawless 9th to nail down the win and get his third save of the season.
With the win, we’re 4-3 on the season and 1-2 in the ACC. I haven’t gone through all the series results from the weekend, but it was a screwy weekend in the ACC from what I understand. I’d expect us to drop in the polls this week, especially Baseball America where we were over ranked at 2.
Next game is Tuesday against George Washington. It’s their season opener. I haven’t looked into them yet but they usually don’t have a very strong program.
