The Virginia baseball team came from behind to win 23 times this season, but when it mattered most, they weren't able to bring in the runs to get to Omaha for the College World Series.
Mississippi State clinched the Super Regional Series against the 'Hoos with a 6-5 win that put an end to the Cavaliers season Monday, June 10, 2013.
The Cavaliers are not advancing to Omaha for the third time in five seasons, but for a team that was left out of most preseason top-25 polls, they have a lot to be proud of.
UVA finished with a 50-12 record, they were one of 8 teams ranked in the NCAA tournament as they claimed the #6 seed, and hosted both a Regional and Super Regional Tournament at Davenport Field.
The 'Hoos will lose three seniors who played major roles for Virginia this season: pitcher Scott Silverstein, first baseman Jared King and second baseman Reed Gragnani.
A majority of the roster will be back in 2014 and it will be no surprise if Virginia is a hot team.
Head Coach Brian O'Connor said, "There is enormous expectations in this program and we love that. I'll take away that I know what our players are about. Who they are as people and as competitors...We need to learn from how we felt out there on the field. We need to learn from that experience and hopefully we're better the next time we have this opportunity...We obviously have a lot of players coming back but this years team had a chance to do it all. This years team had the ability to win it all - we just didn't do it."
