Cavaliers overwhelm Bucknell

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Artie Lewicki limited Bucknell to three hits in seven shutout innings, and Virginia had a seven-run sixth inning in its 10-1 victory Friday in the first game of the NCAA regional.

Lewicki (6-1) struck out five to help Virginia (45-13) move closer to advancing to its fifth super regional in six years. The Cavaliers will face the Liberty-Arkansas winner today at 8 p.m., while Bucknell (30-20-1) will play the loser at 2 p.m.

Bucknell committed four errors and the Cavaliers cashed in with nine unearned runs. Bucknell starter Bryson Hough (8-4) gave up only one earned run in five innings.

In Virginia’s seven-run sixth, a throwing error led to two runs, and Derek Fisher had a two-run single.

The Cavaliers’ Mike Papi and John La Prise each had three hits.

Bucknell scored its lone run in the top of the eighth inning on a bases-loaded wild pitch by Virginia’s Connor Jones, who allowed one hit and two walks in one inning of relief.

Freshman right-hander Alec Bettinger struck out the side in the ninth to end it.
