UVA baseball crushes California before record crowd


As Jolie Holland once sang, "Goodbye, California." Last night, UVA pitcher Tyler Wilson held the University of California Golden Bears to a single run during his more than seven innings on the mound. Meanwhile, second baseman Keith Werman went two-for-two and scored two runs, and left fielder John Barr knocked in two more en route to an 8-1 UVA baseball win.

UVA now faces the University of South Carolina this evening. If UVA can beat USC tonight at 7pm and tomorrow, then it will take on either the University of Florida or Vanderbilt in the College World Series. And fans will most certainly be watching: Last night’s game attracted 25,833 spectators, the largest number to ever watch a UVA baseball game.
