 Luke Drumheller smashed a game-tying home run in the top of the eighth inning, but No. 13 North Carolina responded with two runs in the bottom half of the frame, to edge App State, 4-2, Tuesday. The Mountaineers (7-12, 1-2) put pressure on the Tar Heels all night, putting at least one runner on base in every inning, and out-hitting UNC 10-7. However, outside of the Drumheller home run, App State was unable to come through with the clutch hits, going just 2-for-23 with runners on base, and 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position, stranding 15 on the night.

 

App State Softball split a doubleheader with Western Carolina on Tuesday in the 2022 home debut for the Mountaineers. App State (15-11) posted a 9-2 win in the opener. A three-run homer in the eighth inning lifted Western Carolina (12-12) to a 5-2, extra-inning victory in the second game.

 

 App State Baseball will travel across the state, to Chapel Hill, to face off with the North Carolina Tar Heels Tuesday at 6 p.m. The game will be broadcast on the ACC Network Extra.
