North Carolina freshman left-hander Kent
Emanuel pitched the first complete-game shutout at the College
World Series in five years in a 3-0 victory that eliminated Texas
Emanuel limited the Longhorns to four singles in his third win
of the NCAA tournament and first career shutout.
Jacob Stallings hit a two-run single in the third inning and Ben
Bunting finished a four-hit day with an RBI double in the ninth for
the Tar Heels (51-15), who play Vanderbilt or Florida on Wednesday.
Texas (49-19) went two games and out for the second time in 25
CWS appearances since 1966 and for the fourth time in its record 34
trips to Omaha. The last time was in 2000.
Emanuel walked one and struck out five. North Carolina's Robert
Woodard pitched the last shutout here, blanking Clemson in 2006.
The last freshman to do it was LSU's Brett Laxton in 1993 against
