— Sophomore Mike Zolk capped off a two-run ninth inning with a RBI single as No. 1 North Carolina (6-0) claimed a 9-8 win over Stony Brook (0-6) in the nightcap of a doubleheader sweep.

The Tar Heels cruised to a 7-1 win in the opener as sophomore right-hander Benton Moss struck out seven over seven and a third scoreless innings of work.

Colin Moran and Cody Stubbs each tallied a pair of hits in the opener as Moran matched a career high with three runs scored. Freshman Skye Bolt and Stubbs paced the offense with two RBIs apiece in the win.

Moss was impressive in his second start of the season as he did not allow a Stony Brook runner to reach second base until the eighth inning when he departed with a 6-0 lead.

The runner would come around to score thanks to a Tar Heel error but Trevor Kelly would salt away the 7-1 win for the Tar Heels.

Game two saw Carolina fall behind for the first time in 2013.

The Seawolves scored single runs in the third and fourth innings off of starter Chris Munnelly before the Tar Heel bats came to life in the sixth.

The first six batters of the inning reached with Skye Bolt and Parks Jordan registering RBI hits before Brian Holberton came through with a two-run double to put UNC ahead 4-2 in the sixth.

The Tar Heels would add two more runs in the inning for their third six-run inning of the young season.
Reliever Chris McCue appeared to be rolling in his second long relief appearance of the week as he retired the side in order in both the sixth and seventh innings before finding trouble in the eighth.
Stony Brook turned the tables on the Tar Heels and sent 10 batters to the plate in a six-run inning of its own.

The Seawolves managed six runs on four hits and four walks in the eighth to take an 8-6 lead to the bottom of the eighth.

Holberton opened the eighth by drawing a walk before moving to second base thanks to a balk on Stony Brook's Tyler Honahan. After an unsuccessful bunt attempt, Landon Lassiter provided a pinch-hit single to score Holberton and cut the lead to 8-7.

The Tar Heels would come up short of tying the game in the eighth before putting together another rally in the ninth.

With one out Skye Bolt hit a foul pop fly to the right side but Stony Brook's first baseman overran the ball keeping Bolt alive. The freshman made the Seawolves pay with a double into the right center field gap.

Senior Cody Stubbs knotted the contest up at 8-8 with a double to right center of his own to plate Bolt and notch his third RBI of the day.

An intentional walk to Parks Jordan brought up Holberton with one out in the inning. The junior battled to a 3-2 count before watching ball four to load the bases for Zolk.

The sophomore second baseman fell behind 0-2 in the count to reliever Chad Lee but was able to slap a pitch the other way for the walk off single to left field. Stubbs would come around to score and give Carolina the series sweep of Stony Brook.

Junior Shane Taylor earned the win for Carolina as he threw two scoreless innings of relief.
The Tar Heels will return to action on Tuesday when they close out a seven-game homestand with St. John's in a 3 p.m. contest.
