IT’S GAMEDAY VS OREGON STATE
North Carolina's baseball team knew that pitching and defense would be the key winning in the College World Series.
So far in the NCAA tournament, UNC had played good defense. And with the exception of a 19-11 win over Houston in the Super Regional round, it had pitched well too.
But on Tuesday, in the second and eighth innings, its defense and pitching let it down as Mississippi State buried UNC 12-2.
It is the first time UNC (44-19) has lost in seven games since the NCAA tournament started. Because of the loss, it will play Oregon State in a rematch on Wednesday. UNC won the first matchup 8-6. Winner of that game will play on Friday, while the loser will go home.
"We're happy to get an opportunity to play again," UNC coach Mike Fox said. "They're competitors so they're going to want to come out and play better, which we'll have to tomorrow."
