North Carolina eliminates host and No. 2 seed Florida

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Adam Ramirez and Adam Pate hit back-to-back RBI doubles in the third inning after a rain delay of 3 hours, 19 minutes to spark North Carolina to a 5-2 victory that eliminated host and No. 2 national seed Florida on Saturday.

The Gators (40-23) went 0-2 in a regional for the second year in a row and have lost their past six NCAA tournament games since the 2012 College World Series.

North Carolina (35-26) advanced to a game on Sunday against the loser of the late game between the College of Charleston and Long Beach State.

The Tar Heels broke open a scoreless tie after returning from the lengthy delay, greeting Florida reliever Kirby Snead with four consecutive hits.

Reilly Hovis (9-1) got the victory in relief.

Zack Powers and Casey Turgeon had RBI singles for the Gators.
