Well, the thought that the exam break might have cooled off the bats went out the window quickly last night as the Hoos beat down the visiting High Point Panthers 12-3. The Cavaliers have now won eight in a row which is their longest winning streak of the year. If there was ever a time to go on a hot streak for a college baseball team, it would certainly be the month of May.

Johnny Wholestaff pitched for the Cavaliers with no pitcher throwing more than three innings. Scott Silverstein and Shane Halley combined to hold High Point to two runs on four hits over the first five innings. Nick Howard, Kyle Crockett, Austin Young, and Justin Thompson took care of the back half of the game only giving up a single run on one walk and two hits. The pitchers managed the game well only allowing two walks while striking out seven Panthers. Everyone needed to get some work in due to the layoff and Coach O'Connor was able to accomplish that.

The hitters were just as effective against the High Point pitching staff. Seven of the nine batters in the starting lineup for the Hoos were able to register at least a single hit including Stephen Bruno, Chris Taylor, and Nate Irving all getting two hits or more. Irving was definitely the story of the night, with three hits in three at bats he was able to come up with three runs and two RBI.

The boys get one day off today to recover before they get back in the ACC swing of things this weekend as Georgia Tech comes to Charlottesville. Georgia Tech has underachieved so far this season but that will be no reason for these Cavaliers to rest and take the Yellow Jackets lightly. Til then, go HOOS!
