Ackley drives in one early, UNC up 1-0
We didn't find out in the first inning because the Golden Eagles didn't get a chance to.
J.R. Ballinger walked Ben Bunting to start the game, vanishing any thoughts of walking No. 2 hitter Ackley in the first. Ackley took advantage with a single that scored Bunting, who had advanced to second a wild pitch, putting North Carolina up 1-0.
Southern Miss couldn't muster a run to tie things up in the bottom of the inning. After Bo David struck out looking, James Ewing was walked and advanced to second on a fielder's choice off Kameron Brunty's ground ball. Corey Stevens grounded out to end the inning.
