CHAPEL HILL, N.C.- Cody Stubbs singled with the bases loaded in the 13th inning to help No. 1 overall seed North Carolina avoid a huge upset by edging Florida Atlantic 12-11 on Monday night in a wild regional championship game.

Stubbs’ hit scored Landon Lassiter from third to cap a game filled with momentum swings, sending the Tar Heels (55-9) spilling onto the field in a mad dash to celebrate.

UNC took a 6-2 lead into the ninth inning, but gave up six runs — including a grand slam by Tyler Rocklein — to trail 8-6. But the Tar Heels tied it to send it to extras, only to fall behind again by three in the 12th after the second-seeded Owls (42-22) got a three-run homer by Levi Meyer in the top of the inning.
