CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - - Michael Schwimer tossed 3 1/3 innings in relief to earn his third win of the season and No. 13 Virginia used a three-run eighth inning to knock off Richmond, 8-3, Wednesday evening at Davenport Field. Brandon Marsh and Beau Seabury both added a pair of RBIs for the Cavaliers, who improved to 35-10 on the season and 25-2 at home.
"We made some changes by playing guys at some different positions, and there really wasn't any drop-off," UVa head baseball coach Brian O'Connor said. "This past weekend was a successful conference weekend, but it was nice to return home and play well on our field. Shooter (Hunt) did some nice things for us in his first start, and Michael (Schwimer) gave us another solid outing. It was a good way to start off the week as we head to Maryland for another tough conference series."
Seabury extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Greg Miclat led the Cavaliers going 2-for-4 with one run. Tom Hagan was 1-for-3 with an RBI as seven different Cavaliers finished with one hit. Virginia had seven stolen bases in the game. Schwimer (3-1) relieved Pat McAnaney in the fifth. He struck out two batters. Shooter Hunt started for the Cavaliers and pitched four innings. He posted four strikeouts and allowed four hits. Andrew Carraway pitched 1/3 of an inning as he allowed two runs on one hit and walked two. Casey Lambert threw the final inning and recorded two strikeouts. Kyle Damm (0-2) took loss for the Spiders as he allowed two runs, one earned, on two hits Hank Coogan was 2-for-4 for Richmond, who finished with seven hits in the game.
Seabury's two-run single in the bottom of the eighth gave the Cavaliers an 8-3 lead. David Adams scored Virginia's first run of the inning on a throwing error by the catcher to make it, 6-3. After a single by Brandon Guyer and a walk issued to Hagan, Seabury drove the runners in after a double steal for a five-run lead.
Marsh's two-run double in the bottom of the fifth snapped a 3-3 tie. He doubled in Jeremy Farrell and Miclat putting Virginia ahead, 5-3. Richmond scratched across two runs in the top of the fifth to tie the game, 3-3. Alex Wotring drew a bases loaded walk pulling the Spiders within, 3-2. Joe Mahoney's ground out with the bases loaded scored Benji Marshall for Richmond's third run.
Cameron Brown's RBI single in the top of the fourth pulled the Spiders within, 3-1. Virginia capitalized on two Richmond errors to jump out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Sean Doolittle scored on an error with two outs for the game's first run. Hagan singled through the right side to bring Adams, before Jeremy Farrell reached on an error that scored Guyer.
Virginia hits the road for its final Atlantic Coast Conference road series. The Cavaliers travel to Maryland this weekend. Game times are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.
