CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Skye Bolt came to the plate around 6:32 p.m., Saturday, some four hours after his teammate Hobbs Johnson threw out the first pitch to the series finale between two of college baseball’s elite teams.
To this point, No. 2 North Carolina and No. 7 Virginia had provided enough drama and fireworks over a three-day span to last a season. A surprising rout on Thursday. An incredible, division-clinching comeback on Friday. A marathon on Saturday.
