DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Kent Emanuel threw eight scoreless innings, while Cody Stubbs and Brian Holberton each drove in three runs to help North Carolina beat Miami 10-0 on Thursday in pool play of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.
Emanuel (10-3) allowed four hits for the top-seeded Tar Heels (49-8) in a game called in the eighth inning due to a 10-run mercy rule. UNC got a fast start with Colin Moran getting an RBI single and Holberton adding a two-run single in the third inning. Stubbs finished with four hits.
Moran's RBI was his 84th of the year, setting a school single-season record.
Andrew Suarez (3-5) took the loss for the eighth-seeded Hurricanes (35-22), allowing 11 hits and seven runs in 5 1/3 innings. Miami managed only four singles.
Both teams play again Friday. North Carolina plays fifth-seeded Clemson in Pool A, while Miami faces No. 4 seed North Carolina State.
