OMAHA–North Carolina picked a heck of a time to hit its first home run of the College World Series. With two outs and the score tied 3-3 in the ninth, cleanup man Tim Federowicz launched a hanging, 1-and-1 breaking ball to left field for a game-winning grand slam. Alex White slammed the door with a game-ending 6-4-3 double play in the bottom of the ninth, and UNC pulled out a 7-3 win.
Federowicz now has three career CWS homers, but this was his first since the 2006 championship series. It was the first grand slam at the College World Series since 2001, when Georgia’s David Coffey hit one against Tennessee.
What an exciting game this has been. The atmosphere has been the most intense of any CWS game this year, even with a lot of empty seats. Certainly the atmosphere will take a hit with LSU going home tonight.
