April 18, 2006

Box Score

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Freshman right-hander Andrew Carraway struck out a career-high nine batters in his first collegiate start and sophomore lefty Pat McAnaney picked up his first save as No. 17 Virginia shut out VMI, 5-0, Tuesday night at Davenport Field in nonconference baseball action. Brandon Guyer went 2-for-3 with a pair of runs and an RBI while Tom Hagan was 2-for-4 with three RBI for the Cavaliers (32-9), who improved to 24-2 at home this season.

"We're playing really well right now," UVa head baseball coach Brian O'Connor said. "We were coming off a good conference weekend and wanted to carry that momentum over to this week. Andrew (Carraway) was a guy that we wanted to get a start a while ago, and he came in tonight and showed why. He has great command and pitched a good game. Our guys have been executing so well lately, which gives us that momentum heading to Miami this weekend."

Carraway tossed six innings and held the Keydets to five hits. Pat McAnaney came on in relief and struck out three in earning his first career save. Kevin Crum (3-1) was credited with his first loss of the season for VMI as he gave up four runs on four hits in two innings. Brandon Marsh and Beau Seabury each had one hit for the Cavaliers. Chad Rice led VMI with a 2-for-4 performance at the plate.

Virginia used a three-run first inning to jump out early on VMI. Tim Henry and Brandon Marsh both walked to start off the game. Sean Doolittle's sacrifice bunt moved the runners up. Guyer's RBI single up the middle scored Henry for a 1-0 UVa lead. Hagan doubled in Marsh and Guyer as Virginia led, 3-0.



Hagan's RBI single scored Guyer in the bottom of the third putting the Hoos ahead, 4-0. Seabury's RBI double scored Hagan for the final run for the Cavaliers.

Virginia hits the road for its third ACC series away from home this month. The Cavaliers travel to Miami Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Game times are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday while Sunday's finale is at 1 p.m. All three games can be heard live on WINA 1070 AM and via the internet at
