The Cavalier baseball team used a big seventh inning to overcome a three run deficit and top Marshall, 5-4, at Davenport Field on Tuesday afternoon. The win improves Virginia's record to 16-0, the best start in school history, and the Wahoos remain the only unbeaten team in Division I.

The Cavs used a four run seventh inning to pull ahead for good. Tyler Cannon went 2-for-3 at the plate with two RBI and two stolen bases. Dan Grovatt had a hit to extend his hitting streak to 16 games. He has an 18 game hitting streak dating back to last season.

After Cannon hit a two run single in that decisive seventh frame to tie the game at four, Ian Kadish came on to pitch for Marshall. Kadish allowed the eventual winning run on a balk with Jarrett Parker on third.

Matt Packer pitched three innings to earn his first win, while Kevin Arico tossed two scoreless innings to earn his first career save.

Virginia is back at it with a double-header on Wednesday. The Cavaliers take on Canisius at 4:00pm, and battle Wagner 45 minutes after the completion of the first game. Click on the above video link to view highlights of Tuesday's win.
