Today's attendance was 2389, bring the seven-game attendance for the Charlottesville Regional to 17,528 (avg. 2504).
Tim Henry's 2-run double in the second inning was his first extra-base hit since he doubled against Duke on April 7, a span of 24 games.
Henry extended his hitting streak to 5 games, the sixth-longest streak of his career.
Jacob Thompson relieved starter Casey Lambert in the second inning in the first relief appearance of his career. He had started the first 32 appearances of his career. Thompson pitched 1.0 innings, allowed 2 hits, walked 2, hit a batter and struck out one.
Left-handed reliever Alex Smith made his first appearance of the regional in the third inning in relief of Thompson with the bases loaded and got out of the inning by inducing Chris Hopkins to hit into a double play. It was the sixth double play the Cavaliers turned in the regional.
Smith's appearance was his first since facing one batter (HBP) against Georgia Tech in the ACC Tournament on May 24. Smith pitched a season-long 2.2 innings, his longest stint since pitching a career-high 5.0 innings against Brown in March 2004. (Today's performance was also the fourth-longest appearance of his career.) He struck out 2 batters, tying his season high and allowing just 1 hit.
Virginia's Brandon Guyer hit a 3-run homer in the first inning of the Cavaliers' first game of the regional against Lafayette. After that the Cavaliers failed to hit any home runs, while the opposition hit four (all by Oregon State).
As in yesterday's game, the Cavaliers scored all of their runs in one inning. Today Virginia scored three runs in the second inning and lost 7-3 to Oregon State, while yesterday the Wahoos tallied three times in the fifth inning of a 5-3 loss to the Beavers. Curiously, the Cavaliers scored three runs in their last at-bat in the 13th inning of Saturday night's 7-4 win over the Beavers.
David Adams led Virginia in batting in the regional with a .429 average (6 of 14). As a team the Cavaliers batted .234 and no player had more than one extra base hit.
