The Virginia baseball team simply doesn't lose on its home field very often -- especially during the week.
But Liberty changed that on Tuesday afternoon, holding the Cavaliers to just two hits in an 8-0 win at Davenport Field. The loss snaps a streak of 28 straight mid-week wins at home for Virginia, dating back to April 2009.
It was the Cavaliers' first loss at home this season.
Collin Harrington and Brandon Downes each had a single for Virginia's only two hits. The Flames finished with 11 hits, including five off UVa starter Artie Lewicki. The sophomore right-hander took the loss in his first career start, after giving up five runs (four earned) in three-plus innings.
Liberty scored twice in the third, then added three runs in the fourth and three more in the sixth. Half of the Flames' eight runs were unearned, thanks to four Virginia errors.
