CHAPEL HILL -Freshman starting pitcher Trent Thornton allowed just 1 hit in 7 and 2/3 innings to help lead No. 1 UNC men’s baseball team to a dominating 12-0 victory against the Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs.
Had Thornton managed a no-no, it would’ve been the Tar Heels’ first since 1978.
Gardner-Webb committed six errors in the game, leading to 8 unearned UNC runs.
Gardner-Webb defeated the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill last season.
With the win, UNC remains perfect on the season at 15-0, while Gardner-Webb falls to 11-4.
The Tar Heels will return to the diamond Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. against the High Point Panthers. You can listen to the game live right here on WCHL.
