Twelve, thirteen and fourteen.

On Thursday, pocket-sized pitcher Patrick Johnson held Virginia scoreless for the first time in their last 166 games, tossing a complete game 9K masterpiece that got me what I wanted from the weekend: to not get swept.

On Friday, four Carolina underclassmen held the third best offense in the ACC to 1 run and Carolina notched two small ball runs in the bottom of the 8th to beat the likely 3rd overall pick in next month’s MLB Draft, Danny Hultzen. Hultzen struck out ten and walked only his 14th and 15th men of the season, but number 15 was the winning run, and Carolina took the seemingly unwinnable series from the #1 team in the nation.

And on Saturday, Carolina spoiled Will Roberts’ perfect record by hanging a 3-2 loss on him, thus completing a sweep of a team that hadn’t been swept since 2008.

It was one of the best weekends of college baseball I’ve ever seen.
