The Cavalier baseball team could not come back from a rough first inning, falling to Stony Brook, 6-2, in the two game series finale. The loss marks Virginia's first non-conference loss of the year.

The Seawolves used a big first inning, putting five runs on the board before the Cavaliers even stepped up to the plate. Cavalier starter Jeff Lorick did not make it out of the first inning, giving up five earned runs on five hits in two thirds of an inning. He is the first Virginia starting pitcher to suffer a loss in 2009.

The bullpen had a successful day, allowing just one unearned run and three hits. The five pitchers combined for seven strikeouts, while not walking a batter.

The Cavaliers could not get it going at the plate either. Virginia was only able to tally six hits on the night, which marks the second fewest hit total of the season. Danny Hultzen went 2-for-4 at the plate with a triple, marking the only Virginia player with multiple hits.

Virginia returns to conference play this weekend, as the Wahoos travel to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets lead the Coastal Division. Game one is set to begin Friday night at 7:00pm.
