Scott Forbes and the UNC baseball program capped off its final regular season series at home in a big way.

Not only did the program celebrate Senior Day, as well as Mother's Day, the Diamond Heels had more celebrating to do after the game as they defeated Louisville to secure the ACC Coastal Division regular season title.

North Carolina's offense got going early, as a three-run home run off the bat of freshman Luke Stevenson got the Diamond Heels on the board. A Vance Honeycutt 447-foot blast, a Gavin Gallaher two-run single followed by another Stevenson RBI put the Tar Heels up 8-0 after two innings of action.

It looked like North Carolina was on the verge of mercy ruling the visiting Cardinals, as Casey Cook blasted a three-run homer of his own to put the Diamond Heels up 11-0. However, Lousiville would crawl back into the game as they scored six runs of their own in the fifth inning.

Fortunately, the Tar Heels' offense wasn't done, as Stevenson hit another three-run homer en route to his eight RBI performance, as North Carolina scored 16 runs in the ACC Coastal Division title clinching victory.

For the first time since 2018, the Diamond Heels have secured the ACC Coastal Division regular season title, as they can secure the No. 1 overall seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament with one win over rival Duke next weekend or a loss by Clemson.
