MIAMI, Fla. - - Brandon Guyer and Sean Doolittle both homered and freshman right-hander Jacob Thompson registered his eighth win of the season as No. 17 Virginia won its second straight game at No. 19 Miami, 15-7, Saturday night at Mark Light Field. Virginia scored seven runs in the third and used a five-run eighth inning to break open a four-run game to run its record to 34-9 and 13-7 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Cavaliers out-hit Miami, 17-11 in the game.
"Our guys knew how important and tough this series was going to be against a good Miami team. I'm happy about the way they went about their business," UVa head baseball coach Brian O'Connor said. "We had several quality at-bats and used big innings to help out our pitchers. That's what we have to do to win against a good team on the road."
Thompson (8-1) tossed 5 1/3 innings and recorded four strikeouts. Michael Schwimer pitched 1 2/3 innings and gave up three runs on two hits. Pat McAnaney threw the final two innings and allowed one run on a hit. Guyer finished 3-for-5 with three runs and three RBIs including his second home run of the series. He fell a double short of hitting for the cycle. Doolittle ended up 3-for-6 with two runs and two RBI while Beau Seabury went 3-for-4 with two runs and two RBI and Tom Hagan was 3-for-5 with three runs. Tim Henry finished 2-for-4 with two RBIs.
Manny Miguelez (5-4) took the loss for Miami as he allowed eight runs, six earned, on seven hits in 2 2/3 innings. Jemile Weeks went 3-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs while Jon Jay and Danny Valencia each added a pair of hits. Valencia also had two RBIs.
The Cavaliers rallied for five runs in the top of the eighth to extend their lead to, 15-7. After Guyer was hit by a pitch and Hagan singled, Hagan was caught in a rundown. Guyer stole home and Hagan advanced to second to put the Hoos ahead, 11-6. After Wingfield and Seabury were both hit by pitches loading the bases, Greg Miclat drew a walk scoring Hagan to make it, 12-6. Henry reached on an error that scored Miclat for a 13-6 lead. Doolittle followed with his second RBI of the game for a 14-6 advantage. Brandon Marsh's sacrifice fly with the bases loaded gave the Cavaliers the eight-run lead.
Weeks' second triple of the night scored a run in the ninth for the Hurricanes for the 15-7 score.
Weeks tripled in two runs for the Hurricanes in the bottom of the seventh to make it, 10-5. Valencia's sacrifice fly then scored Weeks as Miami cut its deficit to, 10-6. Danny Valencia's RBI single with no outs in the bottom of the sixth scored Miami's first run of the game pulling the Hurricanes within, 10-1. Miami loaded the bases before Yonder Alonso reached on a fielder's choice and two more Miami runs scored on an error pulling the Hurricanes within, 10-3.
Doolittle's second home run of the season extended the Virginia lead to 10-0 in the top of the sixth.
Guyer's three-run home run in the top of the third started a two-out rally and seven-run inning for the Cavaliers. His second home run of the series put the Cavaliers ahead, 5-0. After a Hagan single and walk by Wingfield, Seabury doubled to left center driving in two more runs as UVa led, 7-0. Greg Miclat's RBI single brought in Seabury to make it, 8-0. Henry doubled in Miclat for the 9-0 Cavalier lead.
The Cavaliers capitalized on a Miami error to jump out to a 2-0 lead. Guyer tripled with one out and scored on a throwing error, which allowed Hagan to reach third base. Wingfield grounded out to second to score Hagan for UVa's second run of the inning.
Miclat, Wingfield and Ryan Hudson each added a hit. Miclat had two RBIs.
