College World Series 2011 Bracket Update: North Carolina Eliminated After 5-1 Loss To Vanderbilt

The 2011 College World Series continues to roll along, but with one fewer team than we had at this time yesterday. Vanderbilt and North Carolina both came into Wednesday's game with a 1-1 record, meaning that whichever team lost would be eliminated from contention. Thanks to a strong pitching performance by the entire staff, and a few timely home runs, Vanderbilt stays in the tournament with a 5-1 win over the Heels.

Vandy starter Taylor Hill went seven strong innings, allowing only four hits and one earned run. He was spelled by Corey Williams who went two innings without allowing a hit. Most of Vanderbilt's offense came on two hits. The first was a three run homer from Connor Harrell. That was followed up by a solo shot from Curt Casali.
