Virginia Advances to College World Series in Dramatic Fashion
Down to their last strike and their last out in the super regional finale against UC Irvine, Virginia hung tough. The Cavaliers trailed 2-1 in the ninth, but loaded the bases for Chris Taylor who hit a single back up the middle, scoring Mitchell Shiflett and Corey Hunt to win it 3-2. The Cavaliers advance to Omaha for the College World Series for the second time in three years with their school record 54th win of the season. Next up, a date with California on Sunday afternoon at 2pm in Nebraska.
