Vollmuth's homer puts Golden Eagles on board

June, 16, 2009
B.A. Vollmuth made up for a missed ground ball in the top of the fourth by hitting a three-run home run in the bottom of the inning to put Southern Miss on the board.

Vollmuth's blast over left field scored Corey Stevens and Michael Ewing, both of whom were walked by Adam Warren, to cut the Golden Eagles' deficit to 8-3.

Warren tied his career high for walks in a game with five -- three in the fourth inning.

Lucky for the pitcher, Carolina's offense just can't let an inning go by without scoring.

The Tar Heels added on two more runs in the top of the fourth to stretch their lead to 8-zip.

With Mark Fleury on third and Garrett Gore on second, Ryan Graepel hit a ball to shortstop that Vollmuth let slip right under his glove and into the outfield. Fleury and Gore scored for Graepel's second RBI on his second hit of the game.
