UNC beats Va Tech 4-1 in ACC title game

Posted:

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Skye Bolt drove in two runs and North Carolina beat Virginia Tech 4-1 on Sunday in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.

Taylore Cherry worked five solid innings in his first career start to help the top-seeded Tar Heels (52-8) earn their sixth ACC tournament title but just their second since 1990.

North Carolina claimed its 19th straight victory against the Hokies (38-20) and denied them their first conference title since they won the Atlantic-10 tournament in 2000.

The Tar Heels finished up with an exhausting 4-0 record this week in Durham, and the middle two wins lasted a combined 32 innings.

They needed 14 innings to beat Clemson on Friday night and 18 to defeat rival N.C. State in a game that ended just before 2 a.m. Sunday -- roughly 11 hours before the title game.
