Vance Honeycutt leads UNC to walk-off win vs. Virginia at 2024 College World Series

In a thrilling start to the College World Series, Vance Honeycutt delivered a walk-off hit in the bottom of the ninth inning, propelling No. 4 North Carolina to a 3-2 victory over No. 12 Virginia.

Key highlights from the game include Casey Cook’s standout performance, contributing three hits, one run, and an RBI. Cook’s clutch RBI single in the seventh inning tied the game at 2-2. Dalton Pence also played a crucial role, holding Virginia scoreless for 3 1/3 innings to keep UNC in contention.

UNC’s pitching staff was stellar in their College World Series debut, limiting Virginia to just two runs on five hits. In contrast, Virginia’s pitchers allowed nine hits, including the decisive ones in the bottom of the ninth.

With this win, Virginia faces elimination, needing a victory against the loser of No. 1 Tennessee vs. No. 8 Florida State to stay alive in the double-elimination format. North Carolina advances to face the winner of that matchup in their next game.
