No. 18 UNC Survives Huge Rally by No. 1 Syracuse



Coach Mike Fox's team is now 36-9 overall.

Mount Olive: The Trojans escaped elimination, defeating Pfeiffer University, 16-2, in the fourth elimination game of the Conference Carolinas baseball tournament. Freshman attack Emily Hawryschuk scored four times to lead SU past the Tar Heels, their only loss since February 25. It is the 22nd hitting streak of 20+ games in Clemson history.

Freshman Ashton McGee's eighth-inning leadoff single made it look like Carolina's eighth-inning habits would win another game, but he was left at third.

"We see them in the exact same situation we saw them in the other day", Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan said of the Tar Heels.

Riley Donahue tied her career high with four goals, and Emily Hawryschuk scored a hat trick as the second-seeded Orange turned back third-seeded Virginia, 15-12, in the semifinal nightcap at Sports Backers Stadium. The victor will take on either Duke or Notre Dame in the final. Reese Hampton drove in two runs with RBI groundouts in Sunday's 3-0 win that was shortened to six innings because of rain. The nation's second-best team in draw controls (16.56 per game), North Carolina, used possession time to fuel its 7-2 run to end the half after SU went up 4-0.

The Irish scored the winning run in the first game of Friday's doubleheader in the bottom of the ninth as the Blue Devils (23-23, 9-15) wasted a three RBI performance from Michael Smicklas.

North Carolina had an incredible 2016-2017 season that capped off with redemption in Phoenix, as the Tar Heels won the National Championship.

The Orange (11-2) tumbled from No. 1 to No. 3.

Ja Rule apologizes after botched Fyre Festival
All guests who attended are also promised free VIP passes for next year's Fyre Festival if everything comes out smoothly. But the festival went down in flames Friday before it even began, with social media users raging about bad treatment.

Notre Dame scored two straight to pull within three once again, however Luke Goldstock went on a personal 2-0 run with two straight goals to allow Carolina some breathing room with a 13-8 lead.

In Greenville, East Carolina (24-21, 4-11 AAC) won its second straight American Athletic Conference series after starting the league schedule with nine straight losses.

The Tar Heels scored three straight in just over two minutes to open the fourth quarter and provide some cushion. Notre Dame plays next Saturday at Army to finish the regular season-and NCAA bids are extended next Sunday. With the help of a great snag by Logan Davidson, Beasley was able to get out of the inning, stranding runners on first and second, bringing the game to extra innings.

Nick Feight keyed the opening victory with four hits, including his 11th homer of the season while Alex Royalty won his Colonial Athletic Association-leading seventh game on the mound. UNC scored one more run as Zack Gahagan hit a sacrifice fly to score Brandon Riley. We've done good things in different areas, but we have yet to put it all together.

Refinements made during halftime, Levy said, enabled North Carolina's offense to flow freely in the second half.

"Last year, any time it was a close game we found a way to lose it", Lynn said.

When SU took a two-goal lead early in the second half, a contingent of Orange fans stood to their feet and SU players danced on the sidelines.
