CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Mike Fox walked to the mound in the ninth inning to pull starter Alex White after a terrific performance from North Carolina’s ace. He just wasn’t quite prepared for White’s reaction.
“Thanks,” White told him. “I really needed this.”
White stuck out a career-high 12 batters for his first win in six weeks as the Tar Heels beat East Carolina 10-1 to open their NCAA super regional series Saturday. It was a big day for the junior right-hander, who also earned his sixth career NCAA victory to become the program’s winningest postseason pitcher and became just the second Tar Heel to amass 300 career strikeouts.
