The Blue Devils picked up right where they left off on Saturday afternoon as they got on the board in the 1st inning.
Zach Kone got Duke going with an RBI double, but after going up 1-0, the Blue Devils loaded the bases but could not come through.
The Tar Heels knotted the score in the 2nd inning, but the Blue Devils would respond in the in their half of the 3rd.
It was Griffin Conine that put Duke back on top with an RBI single, and then Kennie Taylor put Duke up for good when he hit a groundball to the left side that got booted by North Carolina.
Duke was up 4-1 at the end of three innings, and they would never look back.
Ryan Day (5-2) picked up the win for the Blue Devils and he was masterful all day.
Day threw six innings, scattering six hits, and only surrendering one run. Day walked two and only struck out three, but he was in command from the very start.
On the flip side for Carolina, their starter Austin Bergner (5-2) wasn’t so great. He threw five and two-thirds innings, giving up nine hits and five runs, all of them earned. Like Day, Bergner also walked two and struck out three.
The Blue Devils plated one more run on a wild pitch in the 6th inning.
Bryce Jarvis threw a lights-out 7th inning for the Blue Devils, but in his second day of work, Jack Labosky was a bit shaky in his two innings. He gave four hits and one run, walking one and striking out one.
Duke went onto win the ball game 5-2. The win not only secured them the series victory but it also brought them to a half game back on Carolina in the ACC Standings.
