'Hoos Handle No. 22 Liberty in Return from Exams


No. 1 Virginia drew a record crowd Wednesday night at Davenport Field for the baseball team's return from final exams -- and the Cavaliers didn't disappoint the home fans.

UVa's 8-2 win over No. 22 Liberty drew a crowd of 4,354 fans, the most ever for a Virginia midweek home game. The Flames were the first nationally-ranked midweek home opponent for the Cavaliers since the 2010 season.

Senior right-hander Artie Lewicki (4-1) matched his career high by going seven innings for UVa, allowing just two base-runners (one hit and one walk) and striking out six.

Mike Papi, Kenny Towns, and Nate Irving each had a pair of hits for UVa, which improved to 38-9 with the win. Towns drove in a team-high three runs, on an RBI double in the second and a two-run single in the third.

Liberty fell to 35-11 with the loss.
