BLACKSBURG, Va. - The No. 5 Virginia baseball team finished off a three-game sweep of Virginia Tech with an 8-5 triumph Sunday at English Field in Blacksburg, Va. Virginia has now won nine-consecutive games against Virginia Tech.

Sean Doolittle (Tabernacle, N.J.) started for Virginia and tossed 6 2/3 strong innings, allowing just two unearned runs, five hits and three walks. Doolittle (5-2) did not strike out a batter. The Cavaliers' bullpen of Alex Smith (Virginia Beach, Va.), Jake Rule (Waynesboro, Va.) and Casey Lambert (Harrisonburg, Va.) wrapped up the game.

Tim Henry (Fairfield, Conn.) had two hits and two RBI, while Tyler Cannon (Pigeon Forge, Tenn.) added two hits to extend his hitting streak to six games.

Adam Redd (2-2) started for Virginia Tech and gave up three unearned runs, four hits and three walks while striking out seven.

Virginia (27-5, 8-4 ACC) took advantage of two Virginia Tech errors, a wild pitch and a balk to score three times in the first inning. Greg Miclat (Concord, N.C.) scored the first run on a Doolittle sacrifice fly. A Redd balk then plated Brandon Marsh (Alpharetta, Ga.) and Beau Seabury (Mount Vernon, Wash.) hit a single to score David Adams (Margate, Fla.).

The Hokies (15-14, 4-8) cut into the lead with two runs in the fourth inning. Redd reached on a two-base throwing error to lead off and one out later scored on a double by Warren Schaeffer. Schaeffer came home on a groundout by Matt Hacker.



The Cavaliers tacked on a run in the seventh inning on a Tim Henry (Fairfield, Conn.) single which scored Patrick Wingfield (Winchester, Va.). The Hokies got the run back in the eighth inning when Bryan Thomas scored on a Wingfield throwing error.

Virginia took advantage of Virginia Tech reliever Rhett Ballard's wildness to put the game away with four runs in the ninth. Ballard hit the first three batters of the inning - Seabury, Wingfield and Cannon - with pitches. He was removed, and Scott Stoehr then surrendered a run-scoring single to Henry, a bases-loaded walk to Miclat and sacrifice flies to Marsh and Doolittle

The Hokies added two runs in the ninth on a two-run double by Thomas.

Virginia travels to VMI Tuesday for a 7 p.m. contest.
