Tools

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Chaz Frank drove in three runs, and North Carolina pulled away late to beat James Madison 9-3 on Sunday night and win the Chapel Hill Regional.

Tommy Coyle and Brian Holberton added two RBIs apiece for the Tar Heels (48-14). They won three games by a combined 27-3 and will host Fullerton Regional winner Stanford next weekend in the super regionals.

Jake Lowery's two-run homer in the fifth tied it at 3 for James Madison (42-19).

The Tar Heels got things rolling an inning later. Levi Michael, hitless in 11 at-bats this weekend, doubled off the wall in left-center and came around three batters later when Coyle singled. Jacob Stallings followed with an RBI double to make it 5-3, and they cruised from there.

North Carolina, which reached four straight College World Series from 2006-09, improved to 15-0 since 2006 in regional games at home.
