Diamond Heels start ACC Tournament with win – Tar Heels Wire

The North Carolina Tar Heels baseball team took one step towards moving on in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.
On Tuesday, the Tar Heels opened up their tournament run with an 11-5 win over Georgia Tech. And they did so by getting off to a fast start.
UNC struck first in the bottom of the first inning when Tomas Frick hit a two-out single that scored Mac Horvath for a 1-0 lead. The Tar Heels added two more in that inning when Patrick Alvarez hit a single. With a 3-0 lead after one, the Tar Heels never looked back.
Hunter Stokley had an RBI double in the third to extend the lead. Georgia Tech did add one run in the fifth inning and then another in the sixth to cut the lead down to 4-2. But North Carolina would answer back.

The Tar Heels scored three runs in the sixth before breaking it wide open with a four-run eighth inning that was headlined by a Mac Horvath home run.
Alvarez led the way with three runs batted in while Jackson Va De Brake and Frick had two RBI.  Max Carlson went four innings, giving up six hits and one earned run. Ben Peterson got the win after pitching two innings.
UNC was without Vance Honeycutt for the fifth-straight game.
The Tar Heels will take on Virginia Thursday and a win would move them into the quarterfinals.
