UNC needed another ninth inning rally to eliminate Western Carolina 6-5 and sweep through the Chapel Hill Regional. UNC needed similar heroics on Saturday to beat East Carolina 11-10 and entered the top of the ninth today trailing the Catamounts 5-4 before posting two runs and taking the lead for good. Andrews Carignan came on to close the game out giving up a one out double before getting a fly out and game ending strikeout.
The Heels await the winner South Carolina-Charlotte game in Columbia. If the Gamecocks the game at 4 PM they advance, should Charlotte win they would play again in a winner takes all game.
