North Carolina Freshman lefthander Kent Emmanuel shutout Texas on just four hits as the Tar Heels eliminated the Longhorns from the CWS 3-0 Monday afternoon. Emmanuel improved to 9-1. He struck out five and walked only one.
The Tar Heels got all the runs they needed on a two run single by Jacob Stallings in the third inning. The Tar Heels are 51-15 and will play either Vanderbilt or Florida Wednesday in an elimination game. That game was delayed because of a tornado warning.
The Longhorns go 0-2 in the CWS for the first time since 2000. They finish their season at 49-19. Texas struggled offensively in its two games going down in order in 11 of the 18 innings.
