The weather wouldn't cooperate the last time Virginia had a double-header planned. Cold 40 degree temperatures and rain halted the final two games of a three game set with Florida State on March 14th and 15th. However, on Wednesday afternoon weather was far from the issue.

In game one, Virginia took on Canisius and scored 11 runs. Dan Grovatt anchored the Cavalier attack as he went 3-for-4 on the day, and was a key part in the three run second inning in which Grovatt led off with a single. Virginia took the win 11-3.

Game two featured Virginia taking on Wagner. The Seahawks came in hungry to the game and held a tie ball game into the sixth, and Steven Proscia capped off the night with a screaming line-drive homerun over the left field wall in the Cavs 5-2 victory over Wagner.

With the two wins, Virginia improves to 18-0 on the season. The longest winning streak in the school's history. Grovatt also has a 19 game hit-streak intact dating back to last season.

Virginia hits the diamond again on Friday at 6 p.m. as they take on seventh ranked Miami.
