Wild ACC tourney ends
By MIKE BERARDINO
GREENVILLE. S.C - A wild,
rollercoaster-ride of a baseball
season ended for North Carolina
on Saturday in wild, rollercoas
A five-run. ninth-inning rally
fell just short as the Tar Heels lost
a 14-13 barnburner with N.C.
State and were eliminated from
the Atlantic Coast Conference
baseball tournament. The loss left
North Carolina with a split of its
four contests in Municipal
Dow n 14-8 entering the last of
the ninth. UNC made things very
interesting as Tom Nevin delivered
a two-run single and Jesse Levis
drove home the 13th run with a
two-out base hit.
A walk to Dave Arendas loaded
the bases, but State relief pitcher

ballgame and the Tar Heels
North Carolina finished the
year with a 31-22 record. N.C.
State, which went on to lose to
Georgia Tech in the championship
game, left Greenville with a 39-14
UNC right fielder Devy Bell, the
ACC's career home run king with
57 dingers, parked a two-run shot
in his final collegiate game. Nevin
went 4-for-5 with a homer and five
RBI against N.C. State.
After Bell put UNC ahead 8
7 Saturday with his homer in the
fifth inning, a seven-run uprising
by the Wolfpack in the seventh put
just enough distance between State
and the Tar Heels to hold up.
North Carolina's exit game was
typical of its overall tournament

wild year for baseball
performance. Plenty of hitting, too
little pitching, and tons of excite
ment. In four games, the Tar Heels
put 41 runs on the scoreboard, but
In all fairness, UNC had to play
its last two games without the
services of its star shortstop, Darin
Campbell. In the Clemson game,
Campbell was hit by a pitch above
his left elbow, desensitizing a nerve
there and leaving the sturdy
sophomore with no feeling below
his elbow. The injury snapped
Campbell's streak of 106 consec
utive games played.
North Carolina stayed alive on
Friday night by nipping Duke, 1 1

game. Down 10-3 after three
innings, UNC received splendid
long-relief performances from Jim
Dougherty and David Trautwein,
who combined to shut out the Blue

Eight Duke errors and a pair of
two-run homers by Bell and Todd
Nichols helped fuel the rally.
On Thursday, the Tar Heels
opened the tournament with a 13
9 win over Maryland and then
dropped into the loser's bracket
after losing to Clemson, 9-4.
The Tar Heels raced to a 4-0
lead Friday night against Clemson
before the starter Todd Kopc
zynski crumbled. The Tigers
struck for three runs each in the
fourth and fifth off Kopczynski
and got three more in the sixth
off reliever Doug Torborg.
Kopczynski, who had pitched
four consecutive complete games
to end the regular season, appar
ently left his magic in Chapel Hill.
In two tourney starts, Kopczynski
was rocked for 16 hits and 11
earned runs in seven innings-plus.
