Roberts Leads Virginia Past VCU

May 12, 2009

Starting pitcher Will Roberts had his most dominant outing of the season and the Virginia baseball team beat VCU in its regular season home finale 4-1.

Roberts scattered only two hits and struck out six over seven scoreless innings to pick up the win. His counterpart Phillip Deane threw a complete game, giving up three hits and three earned runs on the night.

The Cavaliers wasted little time getting on the board. Phil Gosselin walked in the bottom of the 1st and took off for second base when Danny Hultzen singled to left-center. Gosselin was able to score all the way from 1st to give the Cavaliers their first run of the game. Virginia added another run in the 3rd when Hultzen hit a fly ball to left which VCU's Matt Leskiw dropped, allowing Jarrett Parker to score. The Cavaliers then added runs in the 6th and 7th innings for some insurance.

With the win, Virginia improves to 38-10-1 on the season. The Cavaliers open up a three game set with ACC rival Virginia Tech on Thursday in Blacksburg.
