In Pittsburgh, the top-ranked Virginia baseball team earned a series win over Pittsburgh with a 3-0 victory on Sunday afternoon at Charles L. Cost Field. Virginia (27-5, 12-3 ACC) allowed just two runs in the series in taking two of three games as it captured its eighth straight series win of the year.
“I’m really proud of our club,” Virginia head coach Brian O’Connor said. “We had a difficult loss yesterday after an exciting win Friday and to come back on the road and win the series is huge. We’ve had three road series in the league this year and we won each of them, and that speaks to the character of this team. We didn’t hang our heads after yesterday, we did enough to win. Brandon Waddell was magnificent today. That was as efficient of an eight innings as you will see.”
