    Your experts could not have missed bigger on Miami sweeping UNC. Eric Erikson won ACC FR pitcher of the year award (the same award his opposite pitcher Emmanuel won last year) when Emmanuel was an 8th grader & he took Emmanuel to school in his most dominating performance since he was a Freshman in 2007! PITCHING DOMINATED THE SERIES, with Eric Whaley giving up 2 runs in first inning before shutting UNC down completely in a 4-3 win in 14 innings on an Estaban Tresgallo HR, and today neither team could generate much offense but the Canes did manage 4 runs, shutting out UNC twice for the first time since 1992 when UNC was shut out twice by Princeton, but first and only time since ACC went to 3 game weekend series play!.

    Hey Foley, how’s that grudge against UVa treating you?

      What grudge? No idea what you are talking about..

      UVA isn’t a CWS team this season.
