CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- No. 1 North Carolina used three big innings to its advantage Friday night to take the opening game of a three-game ACC series against visting Maryland, 12-4, at Boshamer Stadium.

The Tar Heels tallied three runs in the third inning and four in the fourth inning to blow the game open before adding on five runs in the seventh inning to provide the final margin.

Junior left-hander Kent Emanuel improved to 6-1 on the year as he carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Jose Cuas ended the no-hit bid with a solo home run. Emanuel finished the day with eight innings of two-run ball as he allowed three hits and struck out six.

The Tar Heels provided Emanuel with plenty of offense Friday night as they eclipsed the 10-run mark for the 14th time this season. North Carolina drew 10 walks and slugged out 10 hits in the series-opening win.

Freshman Skye Bolt led the way with a 3-for-5 night with a double and a career-high five RBIs. Cody Stubbs matched a season high with four RBIs of his own in the win.

The trio of Stubbs, Brian Holberton and Mike Zolk each finished with two hits, while Landon Lassiter scored a career-high three runs.

North Carolina will go for its fifth ACC series win of the year on Saturday with first pitch set for 6 p.m. at Boshamer Stadium.
