OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Dustin Ackley went 5 for 6 and became the
College World Series' career hits leader, and North Carolina tied a
CWS single-game record with 23 hits in an 11-4 victory over
Southern Mississippi on Tuesday.

The Tar Heels (48-17), who will play Thursday against the winner
of Tuesday night's Texas-Arizona State game, eliminated the Golden
Eagles (40-26) and sent coach Corky Palmer into retirement.

Ackley has 27 hits in 14 CWS games. The No. 2 overall draft pick
by the Seattle Mariners, bidding to become the second player to
have six hits in a CWS game, flew out in his final at-bat.
