The Cavaliers won their NCAA Championships opener for the second year in a row. Last season they defeated Lehigh 11-5.
Today's game against Lafayette is UVa's first against the Leopards since 1989. The teams met regularly in the `90s (the 1890s) with 25 of the 30 meetings occurring between 1890-1910. The teams have met just five times since 1910. Virginia owns a 30-9 record against Lafayette.
Brandon Guyer's 3-run home run in the first inning was the first home run for Virginia in the NCAA Championships since Mark Reynolds connected on a 3-run shot in the ninth inning against George Mason in the 2004 tournament, a span of eight tournament games.
Guyer's home run is Virginia's first 3-run homer since Tyler Cannon connected for a 3-run homer in UVa's 11-3 win over Boston College on May 19.
Guyer's three RBI tie his NCAA Championships high; he also had three against Lehigh last year.
The Cavaliers' four first inning runs are their most ever in the first inning of an NCAA Championships game.
The 4-run first inning marked the first time Virginia scored first in an NCAA Championships game since the St. John's game in the 2005 tournament. Virginia is now 7-3 all-time in the NCAA Championships when scoring first.
The 4-run first is also Virginia's biggest inning in the NCAA Championships since a 4-run fourth against Princeton on the way to a 9-0 win in the 2004 tournament.
Starting pitcher Sean Doolittle pitched 7.2 innings, his longest stint of the season and the second-longest outing of his career. He pitched 8 innings in a no-decision against Clemson on March 17, 2006.
Doolittle was the winning pitcher this afternoon to improve to 8-3 this season.
Doolittle also set a school record with the win today, winning the 22nd game of his career. Several other pitchers, including Jacob Thompson, have won 21 in their careers.
Brandon Marsh led the way with four hits for the Cavaliers, his third 4-hit game of the season and the first since the first game against Maryland on April 27, 13 games ago.
Beau Seabury had three hits today for the first time since the second game of the North Carolina series, a span of 34 games.
Lafayette's 11 hits today are the most allowed by Virginia in seven games since they gave up a season-high 20 hits to Coastal Carolina on May 15.
