The No. 5 Virginia baseball team had its nine-game win streak come to an end Sunday as it fell, 4-3, to Miami at Davenport Field. The Hurricanes scored four runs in the first inning and held on as the Cavaliers (25-3, 9-3) chipped away before falling short.
Reed Gragnani finished off the series by going 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI. He went 6-for-12 with nine RBI in the series. Brandon Downes added a pair of hits for Virginia, which picked up nine hits but left 13 runners on base.
UVa starting pitcher Nick Howard was tagged with the loss and fell to 3-2 after giving up four earned runs, five hits and three walks over 4 1/3 innings. Virginia’s bullpen again was outstanding, going 4 2/3 shutout innings and allowing just one baserunner. The Cavaliers’ bullpen did not allow a run in 13 innings over the weekend and has given up just one run over its last 35 1/3 innings.
Virginia hits the road Tuesday for a 6 p.m. non-conference tilt at Liberty.
