Mid 1: UNC 0, SCAR 0

North Carolina's Landon Lassiter got the first hit of the game with a single to left field but the Gamecocks were able to get out of the inning without a score.


No. 1 overall seed North Carolina faces South Carolina Sunday in game two of the Chapel Hill super regional. 

With a 6-5 win in walk-off fashion Saturday the Tar Heels can ensure a trip to Omaha with a win Sunday. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN.

North Carolina will start Hobbs Johnson on the mound. Johnson has a 2.09 ERA in 16 appearances and 15 starts for the Heels this season.

The Tar Heels used five pitchers in game one and relied heavily on the bullpen to keep them in the game. Johnson's start will be key to North Carolina's success Sunday.

Lefty Jordan Montgomery is starting for the Gamecocks. Montgomery has an ERA of 1.67 and is 5-1 on the season.

    The Heels just didn't get the bats going today. Tomorrow is another day. Wishing UNC the best to win the next one, and move on. Let's go Tarheels.

    Come on Heels...4 hits is not going to cut it...Not sure if the USC pithcer is their ace but if not, that is not a good sign.

  • gtsierra Jun 9, 4:21 p.m.

    Congratulations to SC. Time to regroup Heels and come back swinging! Go Heels!

    Great stat. It would be a shame to have the ONLY 2 game losing streak be the one that ends their season.

    Hope they can bounce back tomorrow.

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Jun 9, 3:53 p.m.

    Oh well. S Carolina deserves the win, congrats to them.

    UNC hasn't lost back-to-back games ALL season, so I hope they keep that streak alive.

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Jun 9, 3:46 p.m.

    One more inning to avoid the shut-out and keep the streak going.

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Jun 9, 3:39 p.m.

    Come on Jg. Do your magic and get the Heels back into this thing.

    I tried my best, Dream. Guess today isn't their day. I had hoped to see them put something on the scoreboard so they're not demoralized. Glad they have a deep bullpen.

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Jun 9, 3:37 p.m.

    Oh, I'm well aware all fan bases have their share of Trolls. Not singling State out by any means.

  • GunnyGoesArrrgh Jun 9, 3:36 p.m.

    Dang! Got my hopes up they'd at least get a score on the board with a man on first and second and Moran at bat.

    There are quite a few reasonable State fans. I believe the vast majority are. Remember that in online forums people can create user names at will. Not saying that we are devoid of some embarrassing fans, just as UNC isn't.
