After winning their fourth straight game on the road at Radford, Virginia baseball looked to keep on the winning track against the Spartans of Norfolk State on Wednesday evening. Jeff Lorick was on the hill for the Cavs, but didn't last very long. Lorick only lasted three and two-third innings while allowing an earned run.
Though Lorick left the game early, he didn't allow much damage. The Cavalier bats thrived on that. Jarrett Parker sparked the Virginia attack with a solo homerun in the bottom of the third inning to tie the game at one. Then, later in the bottom of the sixth inning down 2-1, Danny Hultzen poked a single through to center field with the bases loaded to get two runs across to give Virginia the lead that they would hold on to. The Cavaliers walked away with a 6-2 win.
Virginia will now try to win it's first ACC series of the season as they welcome the Maryland Terrapins to Davenport field for a three game set on Friday.
