Miami win eliminates UNC in ACC baseball

Posted May 25, 2012

— Miami's 6-3 win over Wake Forest Friday night eliminates the University of North Carolina from the 2012 ACC Baseball Championship. 

Miami held a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning until Wake's Carlos Lopez hit a solo homer to tie the game. In the sixth, Brad Feeger drove a ball to the wall in left for a run-scoring double to make it 3-2 Hurricanes. Miami added three more in the seventh to hold on for a 6-3 win.

North Carolina and North Carolina State University play Saturday at 7 p.m. The Wolfpack will have ACC pitcher of the year Carlos Rodon on the mound with the chance to play in the ACC championship game on the line.

    Let me guess UNC fans, the ACC tourney doesnt matter so you lost on purpose?

  • StunGunn May 26, 2012

    They're in the top of the 11th - and NO SCORE. Maaaan. What a dog fight. Guess it's a fitting end to ACC play for a Carolina/State game.

    Couldn't agree more! I really don't like this format at all and would prefer the double elimination model.

    Thanks, jm. I'm not going to lie - the loss to Miami really stings, and now no matter what the outcome of tonight's game is, Carolina is done as far as the ACCT.

    This format gives the lower seeded teams an advantage - here's how. Most good college teams really only have at most two ace starters. In this sort of tourney, logic would dictate you save your ace starters for the higher ranked teams; assuming the lower ranked teams will not have as good a record in the round robin. That means the lower seeds face the weaker pitching - and what happens? 8th seeded Ga Tech and 5th seeded Miami take advantage and beat the number 1 and number 2 seed.

    Baseball is really all about pitching - this format turns that advantage to teams that haven't earned it. They need to return to double elim.

    This format is weak. Who came up with this anyway? UNC should be able to just let it all hang out against State.

    Who cares, its just a cocktail party anyway. :)

    Sorry about the loss Heels. I hope NC State is able to duplicate the Miami score when they face UNC.
