Danny Hultzen is gone, but the Virginia Cavaliers have reloaded with young talent, and could make a run towards Omaha with their talented roster. They started slow because of their loss of pitching, but finished hot to pick up a top seed. Because of that top seed, UVA host the Army Black Knights in Charlottesville on Friday. Storms are expected during the late afternoon and evening, so games have been moved up and play will start in the morning.
Branden Kline is expected to take the mound for UVA. He's second among the regular starters in ERA, but he was far and away the team's leader in strikeouts and innings in 2012. Stephen Bruno, Derek Fisher and Jared King lead a strong Cavaliers lineup against the winners of the Patriot League tournament title.
Unfortunately for fans of Virginia, Army and college baseball in general, there is no television coverage or internet streaming of Friday's games in the Charlottesville regional.
Game Date/Time: Friday, 11 am ET
Venue: Davenport Field, Charlottesville, Virginia
