Early offense lifts Cavs to victory against Towson

Virginia bounced back from its two-game losing streak with a dominant 13-4 win against Towson yesterday evening at Davenport Field.
The No. 8 Cavaliers (20-2, 5-2 ACC), who dropped only one position in the national polls after losing two of three games in a thrilling series against No. 4 Miami, were led by sophomore Phil Gosselin, who played left field instead of his usual position of second base. Gosselin batted 3-for-4 and drove in four of Virginia’s runs.

Starting for Virginia yesterday on the mound was senior right-hander Robert Poutier. Poutier earned the win on the evening, striking out six batters and allowing three runs in five innings.

Freshman righthander Jeff Randolph took the mound at the beginning of the game for the Tigers (12-11). After giving up one run in the first inning and five runs without earning an out in the second, he was replaced with freshman right-hander Sean Bertrand, who stayed in the game for six innings. Though Bertrand was mostly able to keep the Cavaliers in check — both Towson and Virginia scored four runs after the third inning — the early deficit was too much for the Tigers.

Virginia and Towson face off again tomorrow at 5 p.m.
