NORFOLK, Va. - Evan Chipman's two-run double keyed a four-run third inning as Old Dominion defeated 19th ranked Virginia, 5-4, Wednesday evening at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex. Junior pre-season All-American Justin Verlander picked up the win as he fanned ten in six innings.

Virginia got on the board in the fifth as Kyle Werman was hit with a pitch and later scored on Matt Street's single. In the sixth, Matt Dunn led off with a walk, then scored on Werman's single. Virginia loaded the bases with one out, but Verlander fanned the next two batters to get out of the inning.
