UNC's bats come alive in the third

June, 7, 2009
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- So much for that long pitcher's battle.

The visiting Tar Heels plated two runs in the top of the third to take a 2-0 lead over East Carolina.

Garrett Gore led off with a single up the middle and was moved up to second on a sacrifice bunt by Mike Cavasinni. After Jacob Stallings struck out swinging, Ben Bunting walked. Then Dustin Ackley walked to load the bases and Kyle Seager made it hurt when he hit Kevin Brandt's first pitch (Brandt's 50th of the day) back between the pitcher's legs into center field for a two-out, two-run single to score Gore and Bunting.

Now it's Adam Warren's turn to try to hold the lead for Carolina.
