UNC opened up the NCAA Baseball Cary Regional with a 16-8 win over Mt. St. Mary's in a repeat drubbing of The Mount by a UNC team in the NCAA Tournament. The Heels will take on UNC-Wilmington at 5 PM on Saturday. The Seahawks handled Elon 5-2 in the first game on Friday.
The Heels offense had little trouble getting things going with RH Tim Fedroff collecting six RBIs. Dustin Ackley and Seth Williams had 3 RBIs apiece with Williams also going deep. The pitching is a bit of a concern with Mike Fox opting to use seven different pitchers. Rob Wooten got the win in 1.2 innings worked.
