CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia baseball team scored a season-high 15 runs Monday afternoon in a 15-2 win over George Washington at Davenport Field. The win completed a three-game sweep for Virginia, improving to 5-1 on the season. The Colonials fell to 0-3.
"It is always good to win at home, and to get a three-game sweep to open your home schedule is nice," head coach Brian O'Connor said. "We have a busy schedule right now. A lot of our guys aspire to play professionally, and this is pro baseball, playing every day. It is a good opportunity for our team to get a lot of reps early in the season and hopefully get into a groove."
Virginia was led offensively by Brandon Marsh (Alpharetta, Ga.) and Greg Miclat (Concord, N.C.). Marsh went 3-for-5 with 5 RBIs, including his second home run of the season. Miclat, named ACC Player of the Week earlier in the day, went 3-for-3, capping a 12-for-13 performance at the plate in the series. Jeremy Farrell (Westlake, Ohio) went 2-for-3 for Virginia.
First-year Matt Packer (Germantown, Tenn.) recorded his first collegiate win on the mound. He pitched six shutout innings, allowing six hits while striking out nine.
Colonial starter Derek Haese took the loss, allowing nine runs (four earned) on eight hits in four innings of work.
Virginia took the lead with three runs in the bottom of the first. Miclat led off the game with a triple, his fourth of the series. He scored on Marsh's RBI groundout. Sean Doolittle (Tabernacle, N.J.) singled before David Adams (Margate, Fla.) and Brandon Guyer (Herndon, Va.) eached walked to load the bases. Beau Seabury (Mount Vernon, Wash.) singled up the middle to drive in Doolittle and Adams.
The Cavaliers scored six runs in the bottom of the third to make the score 9-0. Adams doubled to left to lead off the inning. He moved to third when Guyer reached on a throwing error by the shortstop. A balk scored Adams and moved Guyer to second. After Farrell walked, Patrick Wingfield (Winchester, Va.) reached on an error made on his sacrifice bunt, that scored Guyer. Another error allowed Tim Henry (Fairfield, Conn.) to reach and load the bases. Miclat then singled to drive in Farrell and Wingfield. Marsh's single followed that scored Henry and Miclat.
Virginia scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Tyler Cannon (Pigeon Forge, Tenn.) led off with a walk. He advanced to third on Marsh's single, and scored on Doolittle's sacrifice fly. After Adams was hit by a pitch, Guyer singled in Marsh.
The Cavaliers moved out to a 14-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth. Henry hit a one-out single and scored on Marsh's two-run home run down the left field line. Virginia added one more run in the bottom of the seventh as Ryan Hudson (Tampa, Fla.) singled to drive in Mike Mitchell (Chesapeake, Va.).
George Washington scored the final two runs of the game in the top of the eighth to make the final score 15-2.
The Cavaliers will continue its homestand on Tuesday, as they host William & Mary. First pitch at Davenport Field is slated for 4 p.m. Jeff Lorick (Duluth, Ga.) is scheduled to make his first career start for Virginia, while Tyler Truxell will make his first career start for the Tribe.
