Game two of the Charlottesville Super Regional was officially postponed at 11:11 p.m., Sunday. It will resume at 4 p.m., today. If UVa, which is trailing Mississippi State 5-3 with no outs and the Bulldogs batting in the seventh inning, should come back to win, the deciding game three will start 55 minutes after game two’s ending.

Kyle Crockett was on the hill for the Cavaliers and had a 0-2 count on MSU’s Hunter Renfroe when a storm rolled through Davenport Field.

The delay began at 10:02 p.m.

With a College World Series trip on the line, today’s immediate storyline concerns Virginia’s pitching situation. Bringing Crockett, already on 42 pitches in 2 2/3 innings, back is still an option, but it’s not likely.

Scott Silverstein was the Sunday starter, but gave up five runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings, tying for his shortest outing of the season.

Who will Virginia coach Brian O’Connor bring to the hill? Right-hander reliever Austin Young didn’t throw in Saturday’s 11-6 loss to the Bulldogs.

Mississippi State was cruising along with lefty Chad Girodo when the rains came. The senior has 10 strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings. He did give up a two-RBI double to Nate Irving in the sixth, bringing the score to 5-3.

Today’s resumption will be carried on ESPNU or ESPN2.
