Box Score

Despite tossing four scoreless frames and limiting North Carolina to only one run over the first four innings, the top-ranked Tar Heels employed three multi-run innings to top the Princeton baseball team 16-0.

The Tigers (1-11) have a quick turnaround, heading to Elon at 2 p.m. and UNC-Greensboro at 7 p.m. on Wednesday in doubleheader action.

Starter Kevin Link scattered four hits and a lone run over the first four innings, but the offense was unable to produce any run support for the righty. During that span the Tigers had three hits and stranded four base runners, including a bases loaded third inning.

The turning point was the bottom of the fifth, when the Tar Heels put together one of their multi-run innings. North Carolina scored three runs with two outs, capitalizing on two hits and a Tiger throwing error to go up 4-0.

UNC only gave up one more hit to the Tigers over the final four innings, while the home side added eight runs in the seventh and four more in the eighth to seal the victory.

The top performer for Princeton at the plate was designated hitter Alec Keller, who went 3-for-4 in the leadoff spot.
