Freshman Kent Emanuel will start for UNC versus Maine who will send their ace Keith Bilodeau to the mound in an effort to "shove it" to UNC. For UNC this game is more about the offense and getting off early with some runs on the board, chase the starter and make the Black Bear bullpen do some work.
In these double elimination regionals getting to the winner's bracket from the start makes the road a lot easier, especially with Patrick Johnson set to go on Saturday. If UNC wins, the will face James Madison who defeated FIU 11-7 in the first game of the Chapel Hill Regional.
