The Virginia baseball team has been following a simple formula for success this season -- get a strong outing from a young starter, and give him plenty of run support.
Freshman Trey Oest was again solid for the Cavaliers on Wednesday, pitching five two-hit, shutout innings in an 11-0 Virginia win over George Washington. Oest (2-0) now has pitched 11 shutout innings and allowed just three hits in his first two college starts.
Virginia's starting pitchers haven't given up a run in the last 34 1/3 innings, helping the Cavaliers get off to an 8-0 start this season.
Virginia's offense hammered 15 hits on Wednesday, led by Brandon Downes' 3-for-5 performance that included a solo homer. Branden Cogswell, Joe McCarthy, and Nick Howard had two hits apiece.
