CHAPEL HILL- Chaz Frank had three hits and Brian Holberton drove in two runs to help UNC beat Canisius 6-3 on Friday night in the Chapel Hill Regional.

Holberton’s two run-single provided an early lead for the Tar Heels (53-8), the top overall seed in the NCAA tournament. Canisius (42-16) trailed 4-3 in the eighth before UNC added two runs on Mike Zolk‘s sacrifice fly and Frank’s single to stay in control.

The Tar Heels improved to 27-5 as an NCAA host, though this is the first time UNC has been the No. 1 overall seed.

Carolina will take on Towson at 6 p.m. Saturday– you can hear all the action broadcasting live on 97.9 FM and streaming live on Chapelboro.
