The Virginia baseball team took the field for the first time since April 28 on Friday night, as the Cavaliers opened a three game series with Duke. The Blue Devils brought the bats on Friday, topping the Cavs, 11-4.
Duke opened up a 6-1 lead after six innings, and after a four run eighth, extended the lead to 11-3. Virginia scored a run in the bottom of the eighth, but that is as close as the Wahoos would get, falling in the series opener, which marked their tenth loss of the season.
Steven Proscia hit his sixth home run of the season in the loss, as Virginia falls to 35-10-1 on the season, 13-9-1 in the ACC. Duke, meanwhile, improves to 13-12 in the conference, 32-18 overall.
Game two of the series is set for 1:00pm on Saturday afternoon. Click on the above video link to view highlights of Friday's series opener.
