VCU has been eliminated from the CAA baseball tournament after dropping a 4-2 decision to Hofstra on Friday. The win puts Hofstra in position to play in the title round on Saturday with one more victory over Delaware.
Hofstra went ahead against VCU early a pair of runs in the first inning and then one more in the third to push the score to 3-0. VCU never could match that. It was center fielder Nick Abrahamson's sacrifice fly in the fourth inning that scored the first run for VCU.
First baseman Brent Mikionis hit a solo home run to left field in the sixth inning, which was the final run scored of the game.
VCU matched Hofstra pound for pound, with the exception of one error and one extra hit by Hofstra, which separated the two teams.
