Woodard outduels Faris as UNC stays unbeaten

Clemson shut out for first time this season


In Omaha, Neb., Robert Woodard tossed a three-hit shutout as North Carolina remained unbeaten in the College World Series with a 2-0 victory over top-seeded Clemson Sunday evening at Rosenblatt Stadium.


Woodard (7-1) walked three and he fanned seven. He allowed only one base-runner to reach third base.


The Tar Heels (52-13) scored both their runs in the bottom of the third. Mike Cavasinni lead off with a single and scored on a double by Reid Fronk. Josh Horton followed with a double to bring home Fronk and give UNC a 2-0 lead.


The best scoring chance for the Tigers (53-15) came in the top of the fifth. Andy D'Alessio drew a one-out walk and moved to second on a base hit by Stan Widmann. Both runners advanced on a groundout. Woodard coaxed Adrian Casanova to ground out to third to end the threat.


Stephen Faris (9-3) went the distance for Clemson, working eight innings with seven hits, two runs, one walk and five strikeouts.


Cavasinni and Horton each had two hits for UNC. Widmann had two of Clemson's three hits.


The Tigers will face Cal State Fullerton in an elimination game on Tuesday at 5 p.m. EDT. The winner will meet North Carolina on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
