Virginia Bats Silent After First Inning In Loss To Seton Hall

March 4, 2012

The Virginia baseball team dropped a 5-2 contest to Seton Hall Sunday afternoon at Davenport Field. Virginia scored a pair of runs in the first inning to take the early lead, but the Pirates held UVa scoreless the rest of the way.

Virginia starting pitcher Scott Silverstein tossed six innings, allowing three runs (one earned), six hits and a walk while striking out three. Silverstein (1-1) was credited with the loss.

Chris Taylor picked up a pair of hits to pace the Cavaliers' offense. UVa had seven hits in the first four innings but did not collect a hit over the final five frames. The Cavaliers hit into three double plays and left nine on base, including six in the first four innings.

Virginia travels to James Madison Tuesday for a 4 p.m. game with the Dukes.
