UNCW Press Release

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Chris Munnelly struck out eight and allowed two hits in seven shutout innings as top-ranked North Carolina shutout UNCW, 10-0, on Wednesday at Brooks Field.

Munnelly held the Seahawks hitless until the fifth when Ryan LaGrange laced a double down the left field line with one out. Benton Moss and Mason McCullough both tossed perfect innings of relief to close out the game.

UNCW starter Blaze Tart (2-3) was unable to get out of the third inning, allowing five runs on seven hits in 2 and 2/3 innings.
