Duo Named Golden Spikes Semifinalists

DURHAM, N.C. -- Juniors Kent Emanuel and Colin Moran were named as two of 30 semifinalists for the 2013 Golden Spikes Award presented by USA Baseball.

Emanuel was named the ACC Pitcher of the Year last week after posting a 9-3 mark in the regular season. The Woodstock, Ga., native owns a 2.11 ERA in his 14 starts this season and set a new single-season best with his 10th win of the year against Miami in the ACC Tournament. Emanuel is averaging nearly eight innings per start this season.

Moran joined Emanuel in winning some ACC hardware last week as he became the seventh Tar Heel to be named the ACC Player of the Year. Moran currently leads the country in RBIs with 84 and set a new Carolina single season record in the process. The Rye, N.Y., native owns a .357 average with nine doubles, two triples and a team-high 13 home runs in 2013.

Voting begins today and runs through Friday, May 31 at 5 p.m. ET. The three finalists will be announced on Tuesday, June 4.
