May 26, 2012

One day after a mercy-rule drubbing at the hands of Georgia Tech, Virginia bounced back in a big way Saturday by shutting out top seed Florida State 7-0 at the ACC Tournament in Greensboro.

The Cavaliers sent 11 batters to the plate in a big six-run seventh inning, highlighted by a pair of two-run singles from Derek Fisher and Brandon Downes.

Colin Harrington led the Wahoos with three hits and a pair of RBIs, and Fisher also chipped in a pair of hits to go with his two RBIs and two runs scored.

Artie Lewicki got the victory on the mound, tossing seven strong innings, only allowing three hits with four strikeouts.

Virginia entered the day with a slim chance to make the Championship game on Sunday. A Clemson win over Georgia Tech in Saturday's opener and a UVa win against Florida State would have found the defending champion Cavs back in the title game but the Yellow Jackets stayed perfect with a 5-1 win to advance.

Virginia will now await its NCAA regional fate.
