Greg Miclat went 4-5 with two stolen bases, but it was not enough, as the Cavalier baseball team fell to Towson, 7-6. The loss drops Virginia's record to 24-6.

After jumping out to a 2-0 lead, the Cavaliers saw the Tigers put up six runs in the second to go up 6-2, and extended the lead to 7-2 in the fifth. Virginia began its comeback attempt with two runs in the fifth, and then added two more in the bottom of the ninth. With two men in scoring position, Dan Grovatt hit a pop up to shortstop, ending the game.

Jake Rule started in place of the injured Jeff Lorick, who injured his knee during pregame warm-ups. Rule had a rough outing, lasting 3.1 innings and giving up five earned runs.

The Cavaliers jump right back into ACC play this weekend, as they travel to Florida State to face the Seminoles.
