PRICE Staff Writer ; The confrontation came in the top of the fifth inning. Bill Merrifield, Wake Forest's Ail-American slugger, walked to the plate with one solo home run in the third under his belt and the Tar Heels up 8-1. Greg Karpuk's fastball had been clock ed at ,90 m.p.h. during the game, and when Merrifield came to bat, the UNC righthander had his pitches clicking four of the last Deacon batters had struck out. "He's got an idea out there," a California Angels' scout said. "He knows how to pitch." Karpuk blew one fastball by Merr rifield, the fastball hitter. On the next pitch, another fastball, Merrifield swung and nearly fell down. 0-2. The third pitch, a curve, just missed low. Then Karpuk reached back and pulled out the same pitch that had given him nine strikeouts on the way to a 12-8 Tar Heel victory. Fastball. Merrifield swung, missed and walked back to the Wake Forest dugout. Strike three. Backed by a solid seven innings' work by Karpuk, and the bats of third baseman Jeff Hubbard and Drex Roberts, the UNC baseball team held off a five-run surge by the Demon Deacons in the eighth inning to take their second ACC win on the year. After Merrifield's solo shot in the third, the Tar Heels roared back in the bottom of the inning. Left fielder Jon O'Leary bounced a single through the hole between shortstop and third, stole second on the first pitch to shortstop Walt Weiss, and then moved to third on Weiss' sacrifice bunt. UNC coach Mike Roberts called for the suicide squeeze, but Drex Roberts missed the pitch, and O'Leary was gun ned down at third. One out. Roberts singled to the right side of second base and then scored on Hubbard's single. Catcher B.J. Surhoff then plowed a hard-hit single up the middle to score Hubbard, first baseman Pete Kumiega singled to move Surhoff to third,' and Scott Johnson walked to load the bases. Second baseman Mike Jedziniak crack ed a rolling shot down the third base line, Wake third baseman Harry Newsome blew the throw to first base and three more runs scored. 5-1, UNC. Karpuk blanked the Deacons in the fourth, and the Tar Heels bounced back with three more runs, two on Hubbard's towering 370-foot blast over the right field fence. Hubbard was three-for-four on the day. ( Karpuk cruised through the middle in nings with hardly a problem, keeping the Wake batters off balance with his curve ball and changeup, and then using the fastball as his out pitch. But in the seventh, Karpuk tired and gave up two Deacon runs. On two walks, three singles and a double in the eighth, Karpuk's replacements Tom Reed and Brad Powell gave up five runs. But the Tar Heels held on, scored two more runs in the eighth to seal the win, and raised their overall record to 22-4. Si ' . y If f .1 -- . l u 41 .. -.v.-v i 2 v . .v..--v. ........ A 3?

Roberts led the Tar Heel hitting attack to a 12-8 win Kelvin Bryant stars for USFL 's Stars, leads league in rushing From staff and wire reports Former North Carolina tailback Kelvin Bryant is making a name for himself in a league that many thought would be domi nated by the heroics of ex-Georgia running back Herschel Walker. SPORTS BRIEFS After three weeks of play, Bryant has emerged as the early rushing leader in the fledgling United States Football League as a result of consecutive 100-yard-plus games. Monday night Bryant turned in his best performance of the season, carrying the ball 27 times for 177 yards to lead his team, the Philadelphia Stars, to a 3-0 record. "(Bryant) .is extremely durable and shows no reluctance to carry the ball," head coach Jim Mora said. Bryant has rushed for 342 yards in 69 carries this season, -more than twice the total of Walker, who has been limited to 65 yards or less in each of the New Jersey Generals' games. Two Atlantic Coach Conference teams will try to keep their hopes alive in the NCAA basketball tournament tonight when Virgina and N.C. State compete in the West Regional semi-finals. The Wolfpack will take on the Cinderella Utes of Utah in the first half of a doubleheader at Ogden, Utah. The Wolfpack has won five consecutive games on dramatic comebacks and last-second heroics. The Runnin' Utes enter the game at 18-13 and fresh off a stunning upset of UCLA. It will be a battle of the Big East co champion and an ACC co-champion when the Virginia Cavaliers face the Boston Col lege Eagles in the second West game. 1 he Cavs will continue their quest to give Ralph Sampson his first national cham pionship, while B.C. will look to better its Midwest runner-up status of 1982.
