The Virginia baseball team got three solid innings from Jacob Thompson, and the right hander got plenty of offense to back him up, as the Cavaliers topped Georgetown, 9-1. The win improves the Wahoos' record to 32-11.

Thompson came in on a limited pitch count, as Brian O'Connor aimed to get him some confidence back, after several rough outings. The junior tossed three innings of shutout baseball, giving up only two hits, while striking out two. Thompson only needed 28 pitches, as he picked up his fifth win of the season to improve to 5-2.

Offensively, the Cavs had no problems. Virginia posted five runs in the second inning, capped off by a monster David Adams two run home run to left field. Dan Grovatt went 4-4 on the day at the plate, and knocked across three RBI. Tyler Cannon chipped in with two doubles and three RBI.

Virginia concludes its six game home stand on Wednesday, as the Cavaliers host William and Mary. The Wahoos take on top ranked Miami this weekend.
