'Hoos and Highlanders Rained Out

Top-ranked Virginia and Radford waited less than an hour before pulling the plug on Tuesday's scheduled baseball game at Davenport Field.

After roughly a 45-minute delay, the Highlanders' visit was cancelled because of the steady rain that wouldn't let up in the Charlottesville area. The game can't be made up on Wednesday, because Radford's three-game Big South series at home against Campbell is set to begin on Thursday.

To make up for the lost game, UVa announced immediately after Tuesday's cancellation that the Cavaliers will host William and Mary at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Davenport Field. The Tribe was originally supposed to visit Charlottesville for the Cavaliers' home opener on February 18 -- but that game was snowed out, and eventually moved to Williamsburg.

The Cavaliers (30-6) won that visit to William and Mary 17-2 on February 19.

William and Mary's home game against Old Dominion on Tuesday night was also rained out. The Tribe (22-13) is coming off a CAA series win at James Madison last weekend.
