GREENSBORO — The streak is over. North Carolina, which had won 14 consecutive games leading into its game against Miami here on Thursday in the ACC baseball championship, suffered a 5-3 loss against the Hurricanes.

You can check out the game story right here.

And here’s a quick look back at the Tar Heels’ first loss since April 24:

GREENSBORO — Welcome to Greensboro, and to the 2012 ACC baseball tournament. Before we go on, an apology for the lack of activity here on the blog of late. After spending last week out of the office, on furlough, things will be a lot more active from here forward.

Now onto baseball. We’ve already seen one upset here in Greensboro, at least in terms of seeding. Georgia Tech, the eighth seed, prevailed in a 5-4 victory against top-seeded Florida State, which has been ranked No. 1 nationally – in various polls – for much of the season.

What does this mean for North Carolina? That, possibly, the Tar Heels’ path to the ACC championship became a bit easier. The Seminoles now need to win their two remaining pool games, and hope for help (a Georgia Tech loss), in order to reach the championship game on Sunday.
