OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - North Carolina freshman left-hander Kent Emanuel pitched the first complete-game shutout at the College World Series in five years in a 3-0 victory that eliminated Texas. Emanuel tossed a four-hitter.
Jacob Stallings hit a two-run single in the third inning and Ben Bunting finished a four-hit day with an RBI double in the ninth for the Tar Heels (51-15), who play Vanderbilt or Florida on Wednesday.
Texas (49-19) went two games and out for the second time in 25 CWS appearances since 1966, and for the fourth time in its record 34 trips to Omaha. The last time was in 2000.
The second game between Vandy and Florida was suspended because of rain with Florida leading 3-1 in the bottom of the sixth. They'll finish it Tuesday.
