Big Seventh Inning Helps Virginia Get Revenge Victory Against VCU

Just two weeks after losing a heartbreaking baseball game against VCU in Richmond on a walk-off home run in extra innings, the Cavaliers got their shot to avenge that loss back at home in Charlottesville. After a shaky start, Virginia used a massive six-run seventh-inning to take control of the game and cruised to a 12-6 victory over VCU on Wednesday night at Disharoon Park. 

Making his first start on the mound since last June, Matt Wyatt retired four of the first five batters he faced but started to struggle with location in the top of the second inning. Wyatt gave up a single, committed an error on a pickoff move, walked a batter, and then VCU scored a run on a double-steal. Wyatt then walked another batter, spelling the end of his night. Virginia inserted Dylan Bowers, who gave up an RBI single to Ben Nippolt and walked the next batter, but managed to get out of the inning with no further damage.
