The 10th ranked Tar Heels swept Boston College in baseball over the weekend and have put together a 5 game winning streak after stumbling the previous week.
On Friday, the bats came out as North Carolina rolled 15-1. But not to be over looked, Kent Emanuel threw six innings of shutout ball in the win. Cody Stubbs homered and drove in 5 runs in the game and Chaz Frank drove in 5 and scored three times to help fuel the win.
Carolina came up with 16 hits in the game. The Eagles sole run came in the 8th inning. Emanuel won his 6th game of the season.
On Saturday, designated hitter Brian Holberton broke a tie game, driving in the winning run in the 7th inning in route to a 6-5 Carolina victory.
Adam Griffin drove in 2 runs in a game in which the Tar Heels were out hit 13-9. The Heels were aided by 3 unearned runs off of Boston College errors.
Chris O'Brien earned the win in relief, his first of the season. Starter Benton Moss went only 1.2 innings giving up 3 earned runs.
In the series finale on Sunday, Tar Heel pitching only yielded 3 hits as Carolina took the game 4-1.
Hobbs Johnson went 5.1 innings giving up only 1 run on 2 hits to take the win. He moves to 4-1 on the season. Michael Morin picked up his 13th save in relief.
Adam Griffin drove in two runs while Michael Russell and Colin Moran drove in one run each.
With the sweep, North Carolina goes to 34-13 on the season and 16-8 in the ACC. They currently sit two games ahead of Virginia in the Coastal Division. They will step out of the conference with games against UNC-Wilmington and East Carolina on Tuesday and Wednesday before heading to Durham to play rival Duke over the weekend in a three game series.
