Two losses end season for UVA baseball

Charlottesville, VA (WWBT)- The Virginia baseball team started off its NCAA regional red hot on Saturday, topping Army, 9-1, to cruise into the winners bracket.  Unfortunately for the Wahoos, that hot play would not continue on Sunday.

Two late rallies fell short for Virginia, as the Cavaliers were eliminated from the Charlottesville Regional.  In the afternoon game, Appalachian State used a five run second inning to build a 6-0 lead and put the Cavs in an early hole.  Virginia mounted a charge, cutting the lead in half with three runs in the fourth, and plated another run in the fifth and seventh innings, respectively, but that's as close as they would get. 

Oklahoma got the best of the Wahoos in the elimination game, jumping out to a 4-0 lead after four innings and holding off a ninth inning rally to win 5-4.  Virginia scored three runs in the top of the ninth and left the tying run on base as Derek Fisher grounded out on a bang-bang play to end the game and the season for the Cavaliers. 

Virginia finishes the season 39-19-1.
