The Virginia baseball team turned in an uncharacteristically error-filled performance in a 6-2 loss to North Carolina Saturday at Davenport Field. With the win, North Carolina clinches the series and hands UVa its first ACC series loss at home since 2009. A school record 5,074 attended the game.
The Cavaliers committed four errors on the day and left 15 men on base. The first error allowed the Tar Heels to tie the game in the second after a bases-loaded sacrifice fly from Derek Fisher scored Brandon Cogswell to give the Cavs a 1-0 lead in the first.
The next two errors came in the third and led to a pair of runs as Carolina took a 4-1 lead after three.
The Tar Heels led 6-1 in the eighth when Stephen Bruno doubled to left to score Keith Werman for the final run of the game.
Bruno led Virginia at the plate with three hits and an RBI.
Scott Silverstein started for Virginia and suffered the loss. He went 3.2 innings with two earned runs, two walks and two strikeouts.
Virginia will look to salvage game three of the series Sunday at 1 p.m.
