UVa Baseball Advances to College World Series Finals

Virginia's stay in Omaha will last a few more days.

The Cavaliers eliminated Ole Miss, 4-1, Saturday to advance to the College World Series Finals for the first time in program history.

Virginia will face either Vanderbilt or Texas in the Championship beginning Monday at 8 p.m. The Commodores and Longhorns square off in an elimination game Saturday night.

The 'Hoos and Rebels resumed play today after weather forced the teams off the field after one complete scoreless inning Friday night.

Sophomore Robbie Coman led the Cavaliers with a pair of hits, including a two-run single in the fourth to give Virginia a 2-1 lead. Branden Cogswell's safety squeeze later in the inning made it 3-1 and Joe McCarthy provided an insurance run with an RBI double in the seventh.

Sophomore Josh Sborz picked up the win on the mound, tossing five innings with just one unearned run and four strikeouts. Senior Artie Lewicki relieved Sborz and followed with three innings of one-hit ball and Nick Howard slammed the door with a scoreless ninth.
