Tar Heels Take Super Regional Opener, 5-2

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Patrick Johnson pitched into the eighth inning and Seth Baldwin hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning Friday to help North Carolina beat Stanford 5-2 in the NCAA Super Regionals.

Johnson allowed five hits while striking out seven in 7 2-3 innings for the Tar Heels (49-14), who spent much of the opener of the best-of-3 series protecting a one-run lead. Ben Bunting gave North Carolina that 1-0 margin with an RBI single in the second, then watched as Johnson frustrated Cardinal batters until Baldwin’s blast finally gave the Tar Heels some breathing room.

Stanford (35-21) got a two-run infield hit from Brian Ragira to close to within one, but the Tar Heels answered with two more runs to stay in control.
