Carolina Eliminates Southern Miss in an 11-4 Win

The bats that failed the Heels in their opener against Arizona State came back with a vengance this afternoon, as UNC rattled off twenty-three hits en route to an 11-4 win. Pitcher J.R. Ballinger was put in a hole early after giving up five runs in two and two-thirds innings, including Dustin Ackley's 23rd, 24th and 25th hit in the College World Series. The 25th was a new CWS record; the team's overall twenty-three tied another record mark.

Adam Warren pitched for the Heels, going seven innings and giving up only three runs. UNC will next face the loser of tonight's Texas-ASU matchup Thursday at 6 pm.
