CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The No. 1-ranked Virginia baseball team finished off a series sweep of East Carolina with a 6-2 victory Sunday afternoon in front of 3,592 fans at Davenport Field. In winning its sixth-consecutive game, Virginia (6-1) once again used timely hitting and strong pitching and defense to pick up the victory, as the Cavaliers surrendered just four runs in the weekend series.

“East Carolina year in and year out has a very good ball club and I think it speaks to the level of play that we played with this weekend in the fact that we were able to sweep all three ballgames,” Virginia head coach Brian O’Connor said. “The thing that I was impressed with our club the most was the defensive intensity that we played with was pretty special and the fact that we didn’t have an error all weekend. If you throw strikes like we did on the mound and you handle the ball defensively like we did, you’re going to have a chance to win every ballgame you’re in.”

Virginia drew 10,245 fans for the three-game series. The Sunday crowd as well as the weekend attendance total each were program records for home games in February. ECU was swept in a non-conference road series for the first time since Feb. 16-18, 2007, at UCLA.
