UNC will play the first of what could be three straight win or go home games when they take on LSU in the College World Series tonight at 7 PM. Mike Fox will hand the defibrillator paddles to freshman Matt Harvey hoping he can keep the Heels alive to fight another day. Reliever Rob Wooten, whose arm does not appear to be fully human, will be available despite 3 1/3 innings and 58 pitches against Fresno State.
Of course the bottom line for UNC this season has been hitting and their failure to only score three runs when they came in averaging 10 per game in the NCAA Tournament is a direct indicator of what went wrong against Fresno State.
One thing is certain, it cannot happen again.
