VMI at Virginia Baseball Game Moved up to Tuesday
LEXINGTON, Va. – The VMI baseball team’s contest at the University of Virginia originally scheduled for Wednesday has been moved due to a potential inclement weather. The non-conference game is now set for Tuesday at 3 p.m.
The Keydets (2-2) are coming off a four-game split at UNC-Wilmington last weekend against St. Joe’s University and UNCW.
Senior first-baseman Jake Huggins started the season off with a bang, hitting .450 in four games with a triple, two home runs, seven RBI and five runs scored. He has a slugging percentage of .850.
Two freshmen right-handers had outstanding starts to their collegiate careers. Adam Jewell tossed five innings of hitless ball before allowing a base-hit in the sixth inning against UNCW Friday. Zach Sanders was perfect for the first three innings of his start vs. UNCW Sunday with five Ks.
Virginia has opened the season 0-3, dropping three games to ranked opponents at the MLB4 Collegiate Baseball Tournament; #2 Vanderbilt, #17 TCU and #24 Cal State Fullerton.
VMI defeated then 15th-ranked UVA last year 9-4 on Feb. 20, scoring six runs in the first inning. Huggins had two hits and a walk. The Cavaliers defeated the Keydets 10-9 one week later. Virginia opened a 10-1 lead after three innings and VMI almost fought the whole way back.
