College World Series: UNC Baseball vs. NC State Preview, Start Time, TV Info, and More

Well for the North Carolina Tar Heels, the College World Series all began with a game against in-state and conference rival North Carolina State. In a curucial elimination again, it comes down to a game against…North Carolina State.

For the second time in the College World Series the Tar Heels will face their foes from Raleigh, but this time both teams are on the brink of elimination.

On Sunday, Carlos Rodon blanked the Tar Heels until the final inning when they began to work the exhausted ace pitcher. It’s widely speculated that naturally the Wolfpack will start Rodon again against Carolina despite not having his full period of rest. That comes as no surprise to anyone who has kept up with Carolina Baseball this season and seen them struggle against Rodon.

No word from the Carolina bench on who will get the nod against NC State. Kent Emanuel struggled Sunday against North Carolina State and has struggled all post season long.

UPDATE: As of this morning State will start Brad Stone and UNC will start Hobbs Johnson.

Rest assured the Tar Heels need a good effort from the starting pitcher just as they got from Trent Thornton on Tuesday to go along with some hot bats today.
