CHAPEL HILL, NC– No. 21-ranked Stanford’s (35-22) season came to an end, as No. 7-ranked North Carolina (50-14) advanced to its ninth College World Series, holding off the Cardinal, 7-5, on Saturday afternoon in the Super Regional following an extended weather delay.
Stanford nearly evened the best of three series, following a three hour and 32 minute rain delay, coming back from a 6-1 deficit to close to within 6-5 prior to the delay.
Following the delay, Chris Reed walked Tommy Coyle to put runners on the corners in the ninth with two outs, before giving up an RBI single to Jacob Stallings to make it 7-5. He struck out Ben Bunting to send it to the ninth against UNC’s closer, Michael Morin, who also had a long delay.
Morin pitched a perfect ninth for his tenth save.
