Heels In Control of Cary Regional[UPDATED]

UPDATE: UNC knocks off UNC-Wilmington for the second time in as many days securing a spot in their 3rd straight Super Regional. The Heels will host either Coastal Carolina or East Carolina ensuring that a Carolina of some sort is going to be in the College World Series.

Alex White pitched a complete game three hitter giving up only one run while striking out eight as UNC defeated UNC-Wilmington 5-1. UNCW now plays Elon again and the winner of that game will play UNC Sunday evening at 5 PM. Should UNC win that game the Heels advance to the Super Regional. Since the regional is double elmination, UNC gets two cracks at going to the Super Regional.

Incidentally the only time this season UNC lost two straight games, it was a loss against Georgia Tech followed by a loss to Elon who could potentially be the opponent Sunday night.
