CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The top-ranked Virginia baseball team managed just six hits in a 3-2 loss to VMI Tuesday afternoon at Davenport Field. Virginia (6-2) had its six-game win streak halted, while VMI (5-2) won its fifth-consecutive contest and snapped a 14-game losing streak in Charlottesville, dating back to March 7, 1991.

Mike Papi (Jr., Tunkhannock, Pa.) and Derek Fisher (Jr., Rexmont, Pa.) each had a pair of hits for the Cavaliers. Papi hit a solo home run in the third inning and scored both UVa runs. Brandon Angus went 3-for-4 for the Keydets.

Making a last-minute start after scheduled starting pitcher Artie Lewicki was scratched, Whit Mayberry (R-Sr., Alexandria, Va.) worked 3 2/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) and three hits with one strikeout. He was credited with the loss and fell to 0-1 on the season. David Rosenberger (So., Bethlehem, Pa.) tossed two scoreless innings before Connor Jones (Fr., Chesapeake, Va.) came on to work the final 3 1/3 innings.
