Sutton Whiting's three doubles help No. 6 Louisville sweep No. 15 Virginia
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Lefthander Josh Rogers pitched seven dominant innings and Sutton Whiting had a career-best three doubles as No. 5 Louisville completed a series sweep of No. 14 Virginia with a 4-0 win on Monday night at Davenport Field.
With their seventh straight victory, the Cardinals (25-7, 14-1 ACC) also extended their ACC winning streak to 13 games and now hold a three-game lead in the ACC Atlantic Division at the halfway point of the conference slate. The shutout was the fifth of the season for Louisville, including the fourth in ACC games.
Rogers allowed just three hits and struck out two in 7.0-plus shutout innings to win his fourth consecutive start and improve to 5-1 on the season.
After Lincoln Henzman delivered a perfect inning of work in the eighth, Zack Burdi registered 99 mph on the stadium radar gun multiple times in a perfect ninth inning to close out the game.
Whiting was 3-for-4, scored twice and drove in a run as the Cardinals finished with a 9-3 edge in hits against the Cavaliers (19-12, 6-9 ACC). Nick Solak finished the night 3-of-3 with one RBI, while Brendan McKay added a double and one RBI in the win.
Brandon Waddell was charged with the loss for the Cavaliers and dropped to 2-2 on the season after allowing three runs on eight hits in four innings.
