Carolina improved to 2-0 in the College World Series following a rain-shortened, 5-1 victory over Eastern Michigan. The game was called after six innings due to the weather.
Greg Ward started for Carolina, and was very good. Ward allowed only two hits and one run in six innings (complete game), beating future major league star Bob Welch for the win.
Catcher Greg Keatley had a nice game, driving in three runs for USC. He had a big two-run single in the fourth inning, and a bases loaded walk in the sixth. All-American Hank Small had two hits and an RBI as well.
Carolina would next meet powerful Arizona State in a winners-bracket showdown.
