GREENVILLE, N.C. - Haleigh Dickey hit a two-run homer and tallied five RBIs on the day to lift No. 25 UNC over ECU, 8-0 on Wednesday.
Carolina tacked on two more runs in the third, as Kristen Brown led off with a single to center before Dickey hit her 10th homerun of the season out left.
Amy Nece singled to right center and stole second to get things rolling in the fourth. Kati Causey drew a walk, and after a pitching change by ECU, Erin Satterfield homered on the first pitch to center to score three. Brown then singled to left, followed by a single to short by Mateen before both Tar Heels scored on a hard single to center by Dickey.
Spingola gave up just one hit and one walk in addition to seven strikeouts in four innings. Ashley Bone came in for the final inning, striking out one without giving up a hit.
