Cavaliers Sweep the Eagles

As was predicted the Cavalier baseball team took care of the BC Golden Eagles this weekend in all three games. The best played weekend of the year by far for the Hoos who put together offense, defense, and pitching against a team that was clearly overmatched. 

The best pitching weekend the Cavs have had all year saw them only give up 5 runs in all three games. Of those 5 runs, 3 of them came in the 9th inning of the Saturday game. Danny Hultzen set the standard for the weekend by giving another superb start going 8 innings and striking out 12 while holding them to only 1 run on 3 hits. Robert Morey followed Hultzen on Saturday with his best start of the season going 7 strong innings and striking out 8. Morey didn't give up a run off of the 4 hits that he gave up. Sunday saw Cody Winiarski get back to his solid pitching ways giving up only a run on three hits in 6 innings of work. If the Hoos can get solid starting pitching like this the rest of the year they will be nearly impossible to beat.

Offensively, the Hoos were no slouches either. Scoring 22 runs on the weekend allowed for a lot of easy breathing at the Dav all weekend. Friday saw the Hoos score 7 runs by the 6 innings with both Phil Gosselin and Jarrett Parker having multi hit games for the Cavs. Saturday was a little different as UVa was only able to muster 4 runs against the solid BC starting pitcher. Gosselin was the only Cavalier to record a multi-hit game and also had both an RBI and a Run scored(spark plug Keith Werman also had a run and an RBI). Sunday we got back to the scoring ways  with 8 of the 11 runs scored by the Hoos coming in the first 3 innings. Gosselin, who was clearly the Cav of the weekend, had another multi-hit game going 2-3 with 2 RBI's and Runs scored. Dan Grovatt also had a great Sunday(not surprising) going 2-4 with 4 RBIs and 2 Runs scored which included his 4th Home Run on the year. 

The three wins put the Cavs record at 17-3 overall and 5-1 in the ACC which ties them with Georgia Tech(who lost to lowly Maryland on Friday) and Miami(who swept Duke) for the lead in the ACC Coastal.

The Hoos get back to action on Tuesday as they host Marshall in the single mid-week game on the week. Prediction for the game vs Marshall(7-9): Win and win big for the Hoos. As for my predictions, I think I have only missed 2 games on the year(FSU and Wright St) which means I have predicted 18/20 right. I think thats pretty damn good.
