CHAPEL HILL — Three pitchers combined to throw second-ranked North Carolinas second one-hitter of the season, topping the Appalachian State Mountaineers 2-0.
Starter Reilly Hovis allowed a two-out single in the first inning, then locked down Appalachian State for the next five innings before handing it off to the bullpen efforts of Chris McCue and Chris Munnelly.
Carolina scored the only run it would need in the third inning. With the bases loaded, Mike Zolk scored from third on a Landon Lassiter fly to center field.
Winthrop 5, Wake Forest 2: Winthrop tagged Wake Forest starter Mark McCoy for four runs in the second inning, and the Eagles bullpen held the Demon Deacons (28-25) to two hits over the final five innings.
Duke 12, UNC Greensboro 2: Andy Perez and Mark Lumpa, the Blue Devils leadoff and No. 2 hitters, combined for eight hits to pace the lopsided road win. Perez was 4-for-5 and scored three runs, while Lumpa was 4-for-4 with three RBIs.
Duke (26-26) tallied 17 hits, one shy of its season high but didnt do the bulk of its scoring until after the fourth inning. The Blue Devils scored three runs in the fifth to break a 1-1 tie, then added eight runs over the next three innings. Wire Services
