Richmond, Va. - - Pat McAnaney, Michael Schwimer and Casey Lambert combined for a five-hit shutout as No. 18 Virginia blanked Richmond, 5-0, Wednesday afternoon at Pitt Field. Tom Hagan went 2-for-3 with one run and one RBI while Jeremy Farrell finished 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Cavaliers (25-8), who won their 25th game of the season.
"We needed to bounce back after last weekend and our guys knew it. We made plays and got timely hitting," UVa head coach Brian O'Connor said. "Pat (McAnaney) got ahead of their hitters and had another solid outing for us. That's the way we have to play on the road. Whether it's at home or on the road as long as we pitch well and move base runners, we'll put ourselves in good position to win."
McAnaney (5-1) held the Spiders (10-17) to three hits in seven innings. He struck out four batters. Schwimer recorded two strikeouts and allowed two hits in one inning. Lambert pitched the final inning for the Hoos and sat the Spiders down in order. Brandon Marsh had two RBIs while going 1-for-4 for UVa. Tim Henry, Beau Seabury and Greg Miclat each added a hit for the Cavaliers, who out-hit the Spiders, 8-5. Jason Bolinski (1-5) suffered the loss for Richmond as he allowed four runs on five hits in two innings.
Virginia scored four runs in the top of the second on five hits. Adams was hit by a pitch and moved to second on Brandon Guyer's sacrifice bunt. Hagan's RBI single through the right side scored Adams giving the Hoos a 1-0 lead. Hagan made it 2-0 when he scored on a single up the middle by Seabury. Marsh singled up the middle to score Miclat and Seabury, who both reached on base hits as UVa led, 4-0.
Virginia wraps up its seven-game road swing when the Cavaliers travel to Duke this weekend. Friday's game is at 7 p.m. while games Saturday and Sunday will be played at 1 p.m. The games Friday and Saturday can be heard in Charlottesville on WINA 1070 AM.
