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.
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.
