Jared King scored Branden Cogswell with a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning, and the #7 UVA baseball team beat Old Dominion 10-9 Wednesday at Davenport Field.

Virginia had to come from behind for the win, after ODU jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the 5th inning.

The Cavaliers (32-6) were down 8-4 in the 7th, when sophomore Mike Papi launched a game-tying grand slam into the right field bleachers.

Papi has five home runs this season, and two of them have been grand slams.

The teams each scored a run in the 8th inning, setting the stage for Kings heroics in the 10th.

Head coach Brian O'Connor says, "They never stop fighting. They never stop competing. They feel like they can always try to do something to win a ballgame."

King adds, "Nobody was freaking out in the dugout. Everybody was still confident. That's going to be a great quality to have, as we progress towards the end of the season."

King went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored.

Junior Kyle Crockett pitched 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief to earn the win.

Virginia will begin a three game series with #5 Florida State Friday at 6pm at Davenport Field.
