UNC's Moran driving offense for No. 1 Tar Heels


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Colin Moran has grown from the top freshman in the country to one of the nation's most dangerous hitters and a top draft prospect for No. 1 North Carolina.

The junior has the chance to become the fourth player in NCAA history to lead the nation in runs scored and RBIs. He entered the week first in RBIs and tied for the lead in runs scored, while ranking among the leaders in most major hitting categories.

Moran has helped give UNC the nation's top-scoring offense and kept them on course to return to the College World Series for the sixth time in eight seasons. It's also solidified Moran's standing as one of the top talents in next month's draft.

Moran says he's "just felt comfortable and gotten into a groove."
