— Top-ranked North Carolina equaled the second-best start in school history on Wednesday with a 7-2 win over High Point (7-10) at Boshamer Stadium to improve to 16-0.

Junior Colin Moran tallied three RBIs in the win with his third home run of the season, while Cody Stubbs continued his hot stretch with a 3-for-4 performance with a run and a RBI.

Junior Shane Taylor (2-0) notched the win for the Tar Heels as he threw five and a third innings and surrendered just one run on five hits, while striking out three.

Senior Chris Munnelly threw two and a third innings of no-hit relief for the Tar Heels over the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to maintain a six-run edge.

The Tar Heels scored in each of the first four innings to run out to 7-0 lead Wednesday.

Moran recorded a sacrifice fly in the first before Parks Jordan singled home a run in the second and Stubbs added a RBI single of his own in the third.

Carolina blew the game open in the fourth when they took advantage of a High Point miscue to score four unearned runs. High Point pitcher Ryan Retz threw away a sacrifice bunt attempt to plate one run before Mike Zolk added another with a sacrifice fly.

The big hit came from Colin Moran when he turned on a Retz offering for a two-run home run to right field, his third home run of the year.

The Panthers would push across single runs in the fifth and ninth to provide the final margin, but stranded 11 runners in the contest.

The win moves Carolina to 16-0 on the year which ties for the second-longest winning streak to open a year.

Head coach Mike Fox's Tar Heel debut in 1999 saw Carolina start out 16-0 as well. The best start in UNC history is 21-0 by the 2000 squad.

Up next for UNC is a visit from No. 29 Miami for the ACC home-opening series. The series is set to begin Friday at 7 p.m. with game two scheduled for 6 p.m. on Saturday and the finale on Sunday at 1 p.m.
