It's crunch time in college baseball season. Carolina has 11 games remaining to try to complete a résumé that has them in –or even hosting– an NCAA Tournament Regional.

This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox
UNC baseball coach Mike Fox: "Our two wins before finals were important against a good UNC-W team and we didn't play particularly well and overcame ourselves but got it done in the end which I thought was a big win for us and Campbell as well. Kids have a lot on them with exams coming up. So it was good to go into the break with some confidence and momentum."
Adam Warren emerging as essential piece on Cubs pitching staff
Adam Warren wasn't even the main focus in the deal that made him a Cub as the return from the New York Yankees for Starlin Castro. Yet where would the Cubs be right now without Warren? The 28-year-old right-hander has pitched the most innings in the National League without giving up an earned run this season (8) and has allowed just two hits and three walks.
Mariners’ Chris Iannetta enjoys his return trip to Anaheim
It wasn’t quite like Robinson Cano’s return to Yankee Stadium. But the first time the public-address announcer at Angels Stadium announced Chris Iannetta’s name as he was coming to the plate, a few boos were noticeable. Not exactly an ideal greeting for a guy who played in 394 games over the last four seasons with the Angels.
UNC Baseball takes first steps toward righting season
UNC baseball coach Mike Fox is juxtaposed between calming down Carolina and demanding it win games, but he says he'd rather be in the contrasting position than one where he's demanding wins from an apathetic group. "We put ourselves in that position," he said. "We need to rack up some wins. I call it like I see it. We have to win at home down the stretch."

For Mets' Matt Harvey, this is progress
On the fourth pitch of the game Wednesday night, Mets starter Matt Harvey served up a home run. The next batter smacked a single up the middle. It appeared at that point, once again, Harvey was going to have a long night. You probably know where we're going with this. Harvey's night did not turn long or ugly.
