Virigina Tops Western Michigan 4-3

TAMPA, Fla. - Virginia nabbed its second win of the tournament over a school from the Great Lakes State as they defeated Western Michigan, 4-3, in Tampa.

Corinne Good's double in the third inning started the scoring as it scored Christina Chiappe and Tish Tablan (2x3, RBI, SB). After the Broncos countered with three runs on four hits in the fourth, Virginia tied the game with an unearned run in the fifth.

In the sixth, Beth Crimi (2x3) led off with a single. Two batters later she scored via a RBI single off the bat of Chiappe (3x3, RBI) and UVa led 4-3.

The lead held up as Stacey Zagol came in and pitched the final two innings to pick up the victory (2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K) in relief of Chrissy Quinn (5.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K).
