The No. 16 Tar Heel baseball team, 7-3 on the season, faces a midweek test Wednesday for a 3 p.m. first pitch at Boshamer Stadium against the 3-5 Davidson Wildcats.

Carolina comes into the contest off a series sweep of North Florida, where the Tar Heel pitching staff carried the day. Sophomore ace Trent Thornton threw 7.2 scoreless innings while freshman Zac Gallen recorded his first career collegiate win.

WCHL will chat with UNC’s Thornton Friday morning at 7:20 a.m. during the Morning News.

Davidson is coming off a 2-1 series loss to Miami (OH) and will be looking to rebound in Chapel Hill. The Wildcats narrowly missed out on an upset victory over No. 8 N.C. State earlier in the season.

Wednesday’s game will be the final tune-up for the Tar Heels before embarking on their ACC campaign against Pittsburgh this weekend.
