Jeremy Farrell went 2-4 with a grand slam, as the Cavalier baseball team completed the three game sweep of Boston College with an 8-6 win. Virginia improves to 19-4 on the season, and 5-4 in the ACC.
After the Cavaliers took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second, BC responded for four runs in the top of the third. In the fourth, Virginia began its comeback, scoring a run on a Phil Gosselin single, and another on a Franco Valdes fielder's choice to pull to within one run.
The fifth inning saw the Wahoos go ahead for good, as David Adams belted an RBI single to tie the game at four, followed by a Jeremy Farrell grand slam that put Virginia up 8-4. The Eagles added two more in the eighth to pull the score to 8-6, but that is as close as they could get.
Matt Packer came on in relief in the fourth inning, and pitched three scoreless frames, earning the win to improve to 3-0. Michael Schwimmer pitched the final 1.1 innings to pick up his sixth save on the season.
The Cavaliers continue their 12 game homestand on Tuesday, as they welcome Virginia Commonwealth to Davenport Field for a 5:00pm contest. Virginia's next ACC series begins Friday, as Virginia Tech visits Charlottesville. The Hokies are currently 0-9 in conference play.
