Bankhead inspires confidence in UNC win
(Hbe Satly (Ear litd
By LEE ROBERTS
North Carolina third baseman Jeff
Hubbard was talking about UNC's top
pitcher Sunday after the Tar Heels had
just defeated Maryland, 6-3, in Boshamer
"Whenever Scott Bankhead pitches,"
Hubbard said, "we know we'll win the
And who was going to argue with him
after yet another victory behind the pit
ching of Bankhead?
Bankhead did not even get the victory
Sunday in fact, he stood to lose the
game until the Tar Heel's four-run eighth
inning but his presence on the mound
kept UNC close and, more importantly,
"I felt strong until I tightened up a lit
tle in the seventh," Bankhead said of his
six and two-thirds innings, 10-strikeout
performance. "My goal was to go seven
innings and to keep us close since I was
going with only three day's rest."
Keep UNC close was what Bankhead
did, holding a 1-0 lead into the sixth inn
ing and leaving the game in the seventh
down 2-1. The lone Tar Heel run had
come on a B.J. Surhoff home run to right
field leading off the bottom of the first.
Hubbard led off the seventh with a home
run to cut a 3-1 Terp lead in half.
Then came the four-run eighth. Mike
Jedziniak walked, and Surhoff singled,
his third hit of the game. Walt Weiss laid
down a sacrifice bunt that Terp third
baseman Chris Stark threw into left field,
scoring Jedziniak and Surhoff, leaving
Weiss at third, and giving UNC a 4-3
lead. RBI hits by Todd, Wilkinson and
Scott Johnson made it 6-3, and reliever
Gordon Douglas nailed down the Terps
in the ninth for his third win.
Bankhead was overpowering in the
first five innings, allowing only one single
and striking out two batters in each of the
fourth, fifth and sixth innings.
"He (Bankhead) made only two bad
pitches the entire game," coach Mike
Roberts said. "It was an outstanding per
formance considering he was working
with only three days rest."
The performance was anything but a
surprise to Roberts, who has come to ex
pect a good performance every time out
from the Reidsville junior who was third
team All-America last year.
"Scott is a very stable individual both
on and off the field," Roberts said. "He
has a very mature outlook on life and on
pitching, and that makes all the players
feel that they have an excellent oppor
tunity to win every time he takes the
Call it confidence, call it cockiness, but
UNC is certain it will win when Bankhead
is pitching. Bankhead himself is usually
confident of the outcome also.
"I don't want to be cocky," Bankhead
said. "I just do the best I can and the
thought that I may lose never enters my
Why should losing enter his mind?
Since he lost his first two college games as
a freshman in 1982, Bankhead has a
record of 20-2, including 16 straight wins
since the beginning of the 1983 season. Is
such a long streak ever a source of
pressure for Bankhead?
"I don't think about the streak,"
Bankhead said. "It is the furthest thing
from my mind when I'm out on the
The main thing for Bankhead is con
sistency: If he pitches consistently good
baseball every game for seven, eight or
nine innings, the wins and losses will fall
Meanwhile, his teammates' praises go
on for a country mile.
Sophomore catcher Surhoff, who has
worked with Bankhead for two seasons
and has yet to be involved in a Bankhead
loss, was effusive about his teammate.
"Scott has a lot of guts out there,"
Surhoff said. "He is a tremendous pit
cher with an explosive fastball and a good
slider for his strikeout pitch. I haven't
seen a better pitcher in college ball. I
haven't seen them all, but I haven't seen
Senior Todd Wilkinson agreed.
"You can't say enough about the
guy," Wilkinson said. "He's an outstan
ding person and he's so humble. He
doesn't worry about anything he's out
there to pitch, and he wants the ball in all
the big games."
That statement is easily backed up by
Bankhead's 8-0 lifetime record against
This could be Bankhead's last year in a
North Carolina uniform. As a junior, he
is eligible for the draft, and could turn
professional if he desires.
Pitching coach Howard McCullough
spoke about the possibility of Bankhead
"Scott is signable and definitely wor
thy of the opportunity to play profes
sional baseball," McCullough said. "But
he's intelligent enough that he's not going
to go out unless it is a good situation for
him. He will have the full support of the
coaching staff, whatever his decision is."
