UVA forces a Game 3 against Ole Miss with 4-3 win

mattpackeruvaOXFORD, Miss. – Trailing Ole Miss 3-2 in the eighth inning, the Virginia baseball team rallied to score two in the inning and then held on in a tense ninth inning to record a 4-3 win over the Rebels Saturday in front of a raucous stadium-record crowd of 10,323 at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field in the NCAA Oxford Super Regional.

The super regional is now tied at a game apiece. The deciding third game will be played at 3 p.m. ET Sunday on ESPN. The winner of the game will earn a berth in the College World Series. UVa is seeking its first CWS berth, while Ole Miss is aiming for its first bid since 1972. UVa won a coin flip and will be the designated home team Sunday, as it was on Saturday.

With the victory, Virginia tied a school record with its 47th win this year. It matches the mark set by the 2006 team.
