UNC's Levi Michael and Vandy's Aaron Westlake
Vanderbilt 5, NORTH CAROLINA 1 – Taylor Hill and Corey Williams combined on four-hitter, Connor Harrell and Curt Casali homered as Vanderbilt eliminated North Carolina from the College World Series Wednesday night.

Vanderbilt (54-11) beat the Tar Heels for the second time in the CWS and plays Southeastern Conference rival Florida on Friday. The Commodores are in Omaha for the first time and would need to beat the Gators twice to reach next week's best-of-three finals.

The Commodores have to face a Florida team that has beaten them in four of five meetings this season, including 3-1 at the CWS.

North Carolina (51-16) left 34 runners on base in its three CWS games and was just 7 for 39 with runners in scoring position.

Hill (6-1) outdueled Greg Holt (7-2) in a matchup of Washington Nationals draft picks.

The Tar Heels couldn't advance a runner past first base after they scored in the fifth.
