CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Nick Howard hit the go-ahead, two-run single with one out in the ninth inning to propel the second-ranked Virginia baseball team to a 5-3 triumph at Miami on Monday evening at Alex Rodriguez Park.
 
The Cavaliers (19-4, 7-2 ACC) claimed the series, two games to one, and have won all six of their weekend series this season.
 
In rallying from 3-0 deficit, Virginia also earned its fifth straight series win against the Hurricanes (13-12, 5-4).
 
The reigning ACC Player of the Week, Howard drove in three runs in the game and also recorded the save as he set the Hurricanes down in order in the ninth inning for his sixth save of the year. Howard had four hits and drove in five runs in the series.
 
Connor Jones pitched a scoreless eighth inning as he earned the win for the second straight day, improving to 3-0 on the year. Miami closer Bryan Garcia (2-2) took the loss after allowing the two ninth-inning runs.
 
Both starting pitcher were solid. Virginia starter Brandon Waddell worked six innings, giving up three earned runs, six hits and an intentional walk. He struck out one. Miami’s Bryan Radziewski did not allow a hit in the first four innings and had just one bad inning as he went seven frames, allowing three runs, four hits and six walks while fanning seven.
 
Daniel Pinero went 2-for-3 with an RBI to lead a seven-hit night for Virginia.
 
Virginia returns home Wednesday to start a stretch of six home games in eight days as the Cavaliers play host to Longwood in a 5 p.m. game.
