Brian O'Connor said after Sunday's loss to Miami that he was not sure how his team would respond after losing a series. After Tuesday's performance against Towson, the head coach has to be feeling pretty good about his club's ability to do so.
The Cavaliers used a solid offensive performance to power past the Tigers, 13-4, in game one of a short two game mid-week series. With the victory, Virginia's record improves to 20-2 on the year.
Virginia pulled away for good early, using a seven run second inning to break the lead wide open. The Cavaliers got a great performance out of Phil Gosselin, who went 3-for-4 at the plate with two doubles and four RBI. Corey Hunt went 2-for-4 and knocked in two runs as well.
On the mound, senior Robert Poutier pitched six solid innings, giving up three earned runs while striking out six batters. The effort earned him his first win of the season on the hill.
The Cavaliers and Tigers conclude their two game set Wednesday evening. First pitch is set for 5:00pm. Click on the above video link to view highlights of Tuesday's contest.
