On Saturday, plenty of drama filled Davenport field in the late innings as Virginia lost it's first game of the season to Miami. More drama was on the menu on Sunday as well.

In the early going, Virginia was down two but thanks to a towering Phil Gosselin double, the Cavs tied it up at two in third inning. It was back and forth from there as Hurricanes designated-hitter Yasmani Grandal used a pair of home runs as a catalyst for the Miami offense. With the game shortened due to travel issues, the pressure was on the Cavaliers as they trailed by two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. However, with two outs and a runner on second and third, Dan Grovatt struck out for the third out and Miami walked away from Charlottesville with a series win.

Gosselin anchored the Cavalier offense going 3-for-5 with three runs batted in. Danny Hultzen also came in off the bench and went 2-for-2 on the day.

Next up for the Cavaliers, they'll try to rebound against Towson as they start a two game set with the Tigers on Tuesday.
