CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Frank Schwindel had five hits and pinch-hitter Robert Case had a two-run double in the seventh to help St. John's beat North Carolina 9-5 on Sunday night to win the Chapel Hill Regional and advance to the super regionals for the first time.
Schwindel and Jeremy Baltz scored three runs for the third-seeded Red Storm (40-21), who went unbeaten in the regional and notched a pair of wins against the host and No. 6 national seed Tar Heels (46-16).
St. John's went ahead for good with a three-run third, advancing out of the regionals for the first time since reaching the College World Series in 1980.
Matt Carasiti (7-5) earned the win, allowing four runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings.
Chaz Frank drove in two runs to lead North Carolina, which had won 16 straight games as a regional host before losing to St. John's on a walk-off three-run homer Saturday night.
