Amodeo’s first career home run in the second inning set the tone early for the Seahawks, who have totaled double-digit hits in every game of their win streak.

Three runs came across in the bottom of the fourth when a Britt single down the right-field line brought home two runs on the play. The senior right fielder would drive in another in the bottom of the sixth with a triple to the right-field corner and then scored on a wild pitch to make it 6-0.

The Tar Heels plated a run in the bottom of the seventh on a passed ball.
