The No. 25 Virginia baseball team scored 13 runs over the last four innings to rally and knock off East Carolina, 13-9, Saturday. The Cavaliers (2-0) trailed 4-0 after five innings before scoring the next 13 runs of the game.
Derek Fisher went 3-for-5 with a 3-run home run and five RBI, while freshman Joe McCarthy went 3-for-4 with four RBI. Jared King also had three hits for Virginia.
In his first appearance on the mound in nearly a year, Whit Mayberry tossed 2 2/3 shutout innings of relief to earn the win. Mayberry (1-0) took the ball in the sixth inning and gave up just a hit and two walks while recording a strikeout. He is coming off elbow surgery last March.
The Sunday game between these two has been cancelled because of cold and inclement weather forecast for the area. The game will not be rescheduled.
Virginia returns home at 3 p.m. Tuesday for its home opener against William and Mary. It marks the first contest in a 14-game homestand.
