The final score was 7-0, but for North Carolina its victory against NC State in Game 10 of the College World Series on Thursday night was much more than merely advancing to play another game. It was a bounce-back win against a nemesis who four days earlier had racked up eight strikeouts in a complete-game 8-1 victory that dropped the Tar Heels into the losers' bracket.

Entering the fourth inning on Thursday, UNC was 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position against NC State lefthander Carlos Rodon in the CWS. By the time the frame ended, the Tar Heels were 0-for-11, but more importantly, North Carolina held a 1-0 lead in its elimination game.

"I wasn't satisfied with the explanation. No, not at all. It was a terrible explanation.

But actually, I didn't really get one. Kind of hard to talk to. But with that being said, I certainly didn't want to get thrown out at this stage, at this great event. And I don't know how long Carlos would go if I don't stick around. May not come off the mound. But I just -- obviously, maybe the guy's hand got in. The ball just beat him. For me, you know, the dugout is so far from home plate. The ball just beat him so much that obviously maybe we didn't block the plate good enough. But with the rules, it says you can't block home plate. They put those rules in a few years ago. You can't block home plate.

So if you can't block home plate and the guy, Mike, can get his hand in, then I've got to make a decision. I told Brett Austin make sure you always block home plate and we'll talk about the rule later.I don't know whether he got it right or not.

I don't know. Instant replay will always tell you. Maybe they get their hand in. That's the beauty of baseball for me. Please don't ever have instant replay in baseball. That's one of the great joys still of this game and just one of the beauties.

Golf is a pure game. This is a pure game. Let's leave it alone. But if he got his hand in, fine, but, no, the explanation I wasn't too fond of."
- Elliot Avent on the explanation he got on the play at the plate in the fourth inning
