Starting pitcher Nathan Kirby pitched six strong innings to lead the No. 1 Virginia baseball team to a 6-3 victory over Monmouth on Saturday afternoon in the first game of a three-game weekend series at Davenport Field.

Kirby (3-0) gave up an unearned run, four hits and a walk while striking out five to earn the win. Austin Young tossed two scoreless innings in relief, while Connor Jones induced a game-ending double play to pick up his first career save for the Cavaliers, who improved to 7-2.

Monmouth dropped to 1-3.

Andrew McGee (1-1) took the loss for Monmouth after allowing five earned runs, six hits and four walks in four innings. He struck out one.

Mike Papi reached base in all five of his plate appearances for UVa, going 2-for-2 with a pair of walks and a hit by pitch. Nate Irving hit a three-run home run, while Daniel Pinero and Branden Cogswell each added a pair of hits for the Cavaliers.

The teams will finish the series with a doubleheader today beginning at noon. Tickets from the originally scheduled Friday game, which was postponed until today due to cold temperatures, will be valid for the second game of the doubleheader. The tickets for the Sunday game will be valid for the first game of the doubleheader.
