Terrapin Nine Lose Heartbreaker to Tar Heels 4-3

North Carolina overcame a 4-3 deficit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth on Greg Holt’s RBI double, and Ben Bunting’s infield single with the bases loaded in the 10th lifted the No. 18 Tar Heels to a 5-4 comeback win over Maryland Saturday afternoon. The Terps had erased a 3-0 deficit on Michael Montville’s three-run home run in the seventh inning and edged ahead when Jake Stinnett drew a bases-loaded walk in the eighth.Left-handed reliever Jimmy Reed cruised through the seventh and eighth innings, needing just 20 pitches to retire six batters. He came back out for the ninth and recorded the first out of the inning, but North Carolina’s Jacob Stallings doubled down the left-field line to put the tying run in scoring position. After closer Korey Wacker replaced Reed and recorded the second out of the inning, Holt plated Stallings with a double that landed just fair down the left-field line, sending the game to extra onnings. For Maryland (20-31, 5-21), the ending overshadowed a gritty comeback and solid pitching by Reed and David Carroll. from umterps.com
