Virigina Drops 2-0 Decision to Illinois-Chicago

TAMPA, Va. - Virginia continued its struggles at the plate as they dropped a 2-0 decision to Illinois-Chicago in their final game of the Speedline Invitational.

Offensively, the Cavaliers could manage just four hits, including a double from Christina Chiappe and a triple off the bat of Tish Tablan, as they were shutout for the third time in five games. Tablan tried to stretch her triple into an inside-the-park home run, but used an excellent 9-4-5-2 relay to nab her at the plate.

Hard luck Cavalier pitcher Stacey Zagol (7.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K) carried a shutout into the seventh, but the Flames Rebecca Iuli singled, scoring Mary Curulo, to give UIC a 1-0 lead. UVa finished the Speedline Invitational with a 2-3 mark. The Cavaliers did not qualify for the tournaments "playoff" format.
