'Hoos to Host Mississippi State, Series Starts Saturday

The Virginia baseball team's march back to the College World Series will resume Saturday afternoon at Davenport Field.

The Cavaliers will host Mississippi State this weekend in the best-of-three Charlottesville Super Regional, with the winner moving on to Omaha. The teams will play at 1 p.m. Saturday, 7 p.m. Sunday, and at 4 p.m. Monday (if necessary.)

Mississippi State finished off Central Arkansas with a 6-1 win in Monday night's deciding seventh game to clinch the Starkville Regional and advance to visit Virginia.

Virginia, the No. 6 national seed in the tournament, is 2-1 all-time in super regional play. The Cavaliers advanced to the College World Series in 2009 and 2011, and lost to Oklahoma in 2010. The 50-10 Cavaliers are coming off a 3-0 performance in last weekend's Charlottesville Regional.
