Virginia and Army resumed their first round action in the Charlottesville Regional of the NCAA Baseball tournament Saturday and the Cavaliers took a 3-1 lead after six innings.
Army sort of gave Virginia the opportunities to record a three-run second inning with a series of wild pitches and hit batters to advance some Cavaliers around the base paths.
Brandon Downes had a double in the second and advanced to third base on a wild pitch. Later in the inning with the bases loaded, Branden Cogswell was hit by a pitch to score Downes and Virginia scored the first run of the game.
Junior third baseman Stephen Bruno added a two-RBI single to center field, which gave the Cavs a 3-0 lead.
Army scored a run in the sixth inning, but haven't been able to get much going on the scoreboard despite have six hits compared to Virginia's three, due to the pitching situation in the second inning.
