Tar Heel Baseball Roll Continues with Midweek Davidson Stroll

By Matt Oakes Posted March 5, 2014 at 11:14 pm

The No. 15 North Carolina baseball team downed Davidson 10-3 Wednesday at Boshamer Stadium to record it seventh straight win and improve to 8-3 on the year.

With the loss, the Wildcats fell to 3-6 on the season.

UNC sophomore Reilly Hovis earned his second win of the season with three scoreless and hitless innings, striking out five.

The Tar Heels blew the game open in the bottom of the sixth when Davidson struggled to find the plate with its pitches and Carolina scored four runs off an Adrian Chacon RBI, a sac fly, wild pitch and a Wildcat error.

Carolina led 6-1 and would go on to tally four more runs to secure the comfortable midweek victory.

Skye Bolt went 1-2 for UNC with a trio of walks and a run scored. He also made a diving grab at the wall to steal extra bases from Davidson in the eighth inning.

Next up for the Tar Heels is an ACC opening series against ACC newcomer Pittsburgh. First pitch is scheduled for Friday at 3 p.m.
