CHAPEL HILL – UNC Athletics announced Thursday that its baseball team will add a contest against Florida State next Monday to make up for the cancelled game against N.C.State last week.
The addition makes for a busy final 11 days of the regular season before the ACC championship begins Wednesday the 22nd. The Tar Heels travel to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech this weekend and return home to face the Appalachian State Mountaineers this upcoming Tuesday. UNC will host Virginia Thursday through Saturday at Boshamer Stadium and then close out the regular season against FloridaState.
FSU is currently tied with N.C.State for the Atlantic Division lead. This weekend that tie will be broken during with a three-game series between the two schools in Raleigh.
The addition of the game extends the time frame in which Carolina can secure the Coastal Division title outright. Now with seven games remaining, Carolina needs to win four to guarantee the outright crown.
