For Miami, the tiebreaker worked. The Hurricanes were even with North Carolina atop Pool B of the ACC Baseball Tournament, but as the result of their 5-3 win over the Tar Heels on Thursday, they'll face No. 8-seeded Georgia Tech in the conference title game on Sunday afternoon at NewBridge Bank Park in Greensboro, N.C. It's their first trip to the ACC championship game in four years.
North Carolina managed to beat N.C. State on Saturday but was unable to slide past the 'Canes in the standings.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Jackets, who represent Pool A, finished 3-0 in round-robin play, including a 17-5 win over top-seeded Florida State and a 5-1 victory against Clemson.
On Sunday, sophomore right-hander Javi Salas will take the hill for Miami, while Georgia Tech will go with freshman Josh Heddinger. First pitch is scheduled for 12 p.m. EST and will be televised on ESPN2.
