UNC 2 FSU 1 (10 innings)

CARY, N.C. – Second baseman Kyle Seager singled home the tying run in the seventh inning and had a key base hit in the game-winning rally in the 10th to send North Carolina to a 2-1 win and a series victory over Florida State Sunday at Cary’s USA Baseball National Training Complex. Despite being held hitless through six innings, the Tar Heels (38-8, 18-5 ACC) managed to stay in the game by limiting the Seminoles (35-7, 19-5 ACC) to a season-low four hits for the second time in the series.

With the contest tied at one heading into the bottom of the 10th, third baseman Chad Flack drew a leadoff walk from FSU starter Elih Villanueva (4-2) to start the series-clinching rally. Seager roped a 2-0 pitch from reliever John Gast down the right field line to put runners on the corners, and catcher Tim Federowicz was intentionally walked to bring up designated hitter Mark Fleury with the bases loaded and no outs.
