North Carolina wins 5-4 to reach Omaha

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Colin Moran hit an RBI triple in a three-run sixth inning and staff ace Kent Emanuel picked up his first career save by getting the final two outs to help North Carolina beat South Carolina 5-4 on Tuesday, sending the No. 1 overall seed to the College World Series.

Brian Holberton hit a two-run homer for the Tar Heels (57-10), who trailed 4-2 before pushing ahead for good in the sixth to win the decisive third game in the weather-delayed super regional series.

It will be the Tar Heels’ sixth trip to Omaha in eight seasons.

Reliever Trent Thornton (11-1) earned the win, allowing one earned run over 4 2-3 innings. Then Emanuel – who had thrown 238 pitches in the NCAA tournament – came on for a pair of one-pitch outs that sent the UNC players spilling out of the dugout and onto the field to celebrate.
