CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Orange team captured the Orange & Blue World Series championship with a 6-1 win over the Blue team on Tuesday evening at Davenport Field. Three Orange pitchers combined on a one-hitter.

Nathaniel Abel (So., Haymarket, Va.) started for the Orange and worked five innings while allowing just a hit and a run to earn the win. He gave up a triple on the first pitch of the game to Colin Harrington (R-Jr., Johnstown, Pa.), then limited the Blue to just two walks and a hit batsman over his five innings.

Kevin Doherty (Fr., Laytonsville, Md.) and Robert Coman (Fr., Lake Worth, Va.) each pitched a scoreless inning to finish off the win.

Branden Cogswell (So., Ballston Lake, N.Y.) and Joe McCarthy (Fr., Scranton, Pa.) each had a pair of hits for the Orange, while Brandon Downes (So., South Plainfield, N.J.) recorded two RBI.

Blue starter Trey Oest (Fr., Dover, Fla.) worked four innings and allowed a pair of runs and four hits while striking out four in taking the loss.

The Blue's lone run came in the first when Reed Gragnani (Sr., Richmond, Va.) hit a sacrifice fly to score Harrington.

The Orange stormed back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first on back-to-back RBI doubles by McCarthy and Jared King (R-Sr., Radford, Va.).

They got some breathing room in the third inning with three runs. With one out Nick Howard (So., Olney, Md.) reached on a throwing error. After a Cogswell single, Downes tripled in a pair of runs, and he scored on a McCarthy sac fly.

The Orange added one final tally in the sixth when Robert Bennie (Fr., Stroudsburg, Pa.) doubled in Robert Coman (Fr., Lake Worth, Fla.), who led off the inning with a double.
