The #7 Virginia Baseball team took out VCU Tuesday 17-3 in their final regular season home game at Davenport Field in Charlottesville.
The Cavaliers improve to 43-8 on the season.
Virginia Outfielder, Derek Fisher said, "We're really doing our job up and down the line-up. We always talk about passing it on, doing your job at the plate. Whether it be getting a hit or getting that RBI. I think everyone's going to the plate with the right approach."
"Our goal in front of us right now is to have a chance to win a league championship. In the regular season, I think everyone knows what that's going to take," added UVa head coach Brian O'Connor.
UVa's Joe McCarthy was on fire going 4-of-5 at the plate. The freshmen had four hits - two of which were doubles, four RBI, and two runs.
Whit Mayberry was the starting pitcher and earned the win. He upped his record to 4-0 after working 2 2/3 innings while giving up a pair of runs.
Six other Virginia pitchers served time on the mound and limited VCU to one run and 3 hits for the remaining 6 1/3 innings.
