UNC looks to be headed to Omaha

June, 7, 2009
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A few things happened since our last meeting.

Carolina scored again. It's now 8-0 after seven innings thanks to a Seth Baldwin sac fly that scored Garrett Gore.

UNC's Dustin Ackley led off the eighth with a groundout to first. Upon returning to the Carolina dugout, most of the 4,271 in attendance gave Ackley a standing ovation after what will likely be his last-ever at-bat in Chapel Hill. The junior will be a top draft pick in the June 9 MLB draft and should be cashing a professional check sometime after UNC's season ends in Omaha.

The East Carolina bus is running. Literally. Outside of the third-base side of Boshamer Stadium.

Six outs left in the ECU season, unless the Pirates can somehow hijack this game.
