Virginia Meets Toledo for First Time
Virginia will play Toledo for the first time in program history this weekend. UVa is 7-4 against current members of the 12-team Mid-American Conference, although the Cavaliers have not faced a MAC team since 1987 when they split a four-game series with Kent State.
UVa is 5-0 against Akron, 2-2 against Kent State and 0-1 against Buffalo and Ohio University; the Cavaliers have never played Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Miami (Ohio), Northern Illinois, Toledo and Western Michigan.
The reigning MAC West champions, Toledo went 1-1 in its opening weekend at the Ron Fraser Classic in Cary, N.C. The Rockets lost to LaSalle, 8-7, before knocking off Delaware, 3-1. Their final two games were cancelled because of inclement weather.
Picked second in MAC West in the preseason MAC Coaches Poll, Toledo went 30-27 last season, with a 19-8 record in the MAC. UT returns 20 letterwinners from the 2012.
O'Connor, Mee Reunite this Weekend
Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor and Toledo head coach Cory Mee are good friends; the two spent five years working together at Notre Dame as assistants under then-coach Paul Mainieri (1995-99). The Fighting Irish went 209-93 and reached the NCAA tournament in 1996 and 1999 during their tenure together in South Bend. Interestingly, their 1996 team was eliminated by Virginia.
Offense Scorching to Start Season
Virginia has scored 47 runs in the first four games, racking up nine runs or more in each. The Cavaliers are batting .357 as a team and own 16 extra-base hits (opponents batting .241 with six extra-base hits).
The runs have tended to come in bunches, as UVa has scored three runs or more in an inning eight times. UVa also owns a gaudy .486 team on-base percentage through four games.
Cavaliers Attack Late at the Plate
Virginia has scored over half of its runs in the seventh and eighth innings. UVa has scored 15 seventh-inning runs and 10 eighth-inning runs; the Cavaliers have scored 47 runs this season. Just five of UVa's runs have come in the first three innings, and all are first-inning tallies.
Virginia continues its homestand at 3 p.m. Tuesday when it entertains George Washington at Davenport Field.
