No. 12 Virginia edges Notre Dame for first ACC road sweep since 2013

  The Cavaliers have won four consecutive games after losing seven of their previous nine.

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Virginia finished off a series sweep Sunday with a 5-4 win against Notre Dame (16-10, 3-9) at Frank Eck Stadium. Playing in blustery conditions featuring sleet, rain and strong winds, the No. 12 Cavaliers (18-8, 6-6 ACC) claimed their first ACC road series sweep since April 6-8, 2013, at Wake Forest.

"We had some challenging weather conditions all weekend but I'm really proud of our guys for battling through the tough conditions and finding a way to win three ballgames," said Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor. "It's something that at this point in the season, our team really needed to play three good games. It was big for this team to figure that out and get a big road sweep."

Adam Haseley picked up three hits to finish off a seven-hit series. He reached base 10 times in the series and now has 10 hits in his last four games. Pavin Smith also recorded three hits, while Robbie Coman chipped in a pair of hits, as UVa finished with 11 hits.

Virginia starting pitcher Brandon Waddell worked 5.1 innings, allowing two earned runs, five hits and two walks while striking out three. He earned the win and improved to 2-1 this year. Alec Bettinger pitched 2.2 innings of relief, striking out five. Josh Sborz pitched the ninth inning to earn his seventh save of the season.

Notre Dame starter Nick McCarty (3-3) pitched 6.1 innings, giving up five runs (four earned), nine hits and three walks with one strikeout in taking the loss.
