This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

The North Carolina baseball team (41-10, 21-6 ACC) heads into the last week of the regular season following a series victory at Virginia Tech.

Former UNC pitcher Alex White working his way back with independent minor league team

Sioux City Explorers manager Steve Montgomery didn’t know what to expect from 28-year-old righthander Alex White, who spent nearly two full big-league seasons with the Indians and the Rockies. So, it impressed “Mongo” considerably when White stepped on the field for the team’s first workout Saturday, volunteering for the dreaded bucket duty during batting practice. (Sioux City Journal)

Zack Gahagan homered and drove in five runs and Brian Miller matched a career high with five hits as No. 3 North Carolina secured its ninth consecutive series win with a 20-0 victory over Virginia Tech Sunday at English Field.

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta has several stitches in his upper lip, plus a couple of fractured teeth and a broken nose after getting hit in the face by a fastball.

No. 3 Tar Heels Clinch ACC Coastal Baseball Crown

Tyler Lynn's two-run homer in the sixth gave No. 3 North Carolina the lead for good and Rodney Hutchison Jr. worked 4.2 scoreless innings of relief as the Tar Heels beat Virginia Tech 9-4 Saturday at English Field. The win, coupled with Virignia's loss to Miami, means the Tar Heels have clinched the ACC Coastal Division title outright for the first time since 2013. (

Matt Harvey's return doesn't end well, but Mets see a silver lining

Too much of the chatter around the New York Mets' Matt Harvey over the past week has been about what he needs to do as a person and a teammate. With his outing Friday in a 7-4 New York loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, he showed he also has a lot of work to do as a pitcher. And he knows it, which might be the silver lining in all this. (

Mariners’ Kyle Seager talks baseball, brothers, idolizing Derek Jeter and more

In case you didn’t notice, Kyle Seager is heating up. Over his last seven games, the Mariners third baseman is hitting .320, including a game-clinching home run last weekend against the Rangers. Seager’s bat has anchored one of the best 3-4-5 combos in baseball, while his sure-handed play at third base has solidified the left side of the Mariners’ infield. (Seattle Times)

Ex-Cub Adam Greenberg puts positive spin on one of baseball's cruelest tales

Adam Greenberg (UNC 2000-02) got hit squarely in the head by a fastball on the first pitch he saw in the big leagues. The errant delivery, which caused concussion and vertigo symptoms lasting a couple years, effectively ended Greenberg's MLB career. Prior to a recent speaking appearance in Chicago, Greenberg said the Cubs' success only served to stir up his thoughts of what might have been. (Chicago Tribune)

Why Mets' Matt Harvey's start in Milwaukee might be biggest yet

Not to sound hyperbolic here, but Matt Harvey will take the mound Friday under far different circumstances than he did the last time out. Harvey had a bad week. His supermodel girlfriend dumped him for her ex, Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. It was done publicly, with paparazzi catching the two of them on the night of the Met Ball. (

Winston-Salem Dash's Landon Lassiter back doing what he does best

Come every baseball season since he was 5 years old, Landon Lassiter has hit the baseball. He hit during his youth and summer league days growing up around Thomasville and High Point.
