CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - - Sean Doolittle recorded a career-high 13 strikeouts as No. 13 Virginia (36-10, 14-8 ACC) shut out Maryland, 6-0, Friday night at Shipley Field in the Atlantic Coast Conference series opener for both teams. Doolittle, Michael Schwimer and Casey Lambert combined for the Cavaliers' eighth shutout of the season while the three also combined for a season-high 16 strikeouts by the Cavalier pitching staff and limited the Terrapins to two hits. David Adams led the Hoos at the plate going 3-for-5 with two RBIs.
"We started off the weekend with another great pitching performance from Sean (Doolittle)," UVa head baseball coach Brian O'Connor said. "Our players know this is going to be a tough series, and they knew we needed to get off to a good start offensively and defensively. Sean had great stuff tonight. He kept their hitters off-balance while our hitters stayed aggressive at the plate. It gives us confidence heading into Saturday's game.
Doolittle (8-1) tossed 6 1/3 innings in picking up his eighth win of the season. He no-hit the Terrapins through 5 1/3 innings and retired the first 17 batters he faced before giving up a bunt single in the sixth. He struck out the side in the first, third and fourth innings. He has 22 strikeouts in his last two outings. Schwimer threw 1.2 scoreless innings in relief while Lambert pitched the final inning of the game. Greg Miclat and Patrick Wingfield both had two hits for the Hoos. Doolittle hit his third home run of the season as he finished 1-for-3 with a run and two RBIs. Brandon Marsh hit his first career home run in the first inning. Tim Henry added a hit for the Cavaliers, who finished with 10 hits.
Casey Baron (1-5) took the loss for the Terrapins (20-26, 7-18 ACC) as he allowed four runs on seven hits in seven innings.
Adams' two-run single scored Henry and Miclat giving the Hoos a pair of insurance runs in the top of the ninth. The Cavaliers loaded the bases in ninth when Henry walked, Miclat singled and Doolittle was intentionally walked. Adams followed with the single to left field.
Doolittle hit a two-run home run to straight-away center field extending the Cavalier lead to 4-0 in the top of the third.
Marsh's solo home run started a two-run first inning for the Cavaliers. He hit a towering shot over the left field wall with one out giving the Hoos a 1-0 lead. After an Adams' single, Guyer reached on a three-base error allowing Adams to score for the 2-0 lead.
The Cavaliers and Terrapins continue their three-game series Saturday at 7 p.m. Freshman right-hander Jacob Thompson will start for the Cavaliers Saturday. Saturday's game can be heard live locally on WINA 1070 AM or via www.virginiasports.com.
