NCAA Super Regional Game 3 Postgame Notes

Ole Miss

Ole Miss fell to 41-33 all-time in NCAA Tournament play.

The Rebels dropped to 19-17 in NCAA Tournament games under head coach Mike Bianco.

Making its fourth Super Regional appearance in the last five years, Ole Miss fell to 3-8 all-time in Super Regional play and were unable to advance to their first College World Series appearance since 1972. The Rebels have four total CWS appearances in school history (1956, 1964, 1969, 1972).

Ole Miss hosted a Super Regional for the third time (2005, 2006). In both of those years, the Rebels also won the opening game and lost the next two games to be eliminated from the postseason.

The Rebels dropped to 26-10 this season when scoring first, including losses yesterday and today.

Ole Miss was held to only one run for just the third time this season, moving to 0-3 in such contests.

Junior OF Jordan Henry went 1-for-3 with a walk, stolen base and run scored today. His 56 walks this season are the second-most in school history behind Pat Ball's 59 free passes in 1977. He has already set the school record for steals in a season and now has 38 stolen bases on the year. Henry’s 70 runs scored are second-most in a season in school history behind Chris Coghlan’s 75 in 2006.

By reaching base twice today, Henry reached base in 60-of-63 games this season.

Junior 3B Zach Miller went 1-for-4 today to extend his current hitting streak to a season high-tying seven games.

 

Virginia

Virginia wins the 2009 Oxford Super Regional (in their first-ever Super Regional appearance) to advance to their first-ever College World Series trip.

The Cavaliers notched their 48th win of the season, which establishes a school record, surpassing the 47 wins they piled up in 2006.

The Cavaliers evened their all-time postseason record at 17-17 and improved their Super Regional record to 2-1.

The Cavaliers also evened their NCAA record under head coach Brian O’Connor at 11-11.

Virginia runners racked up six stolen bases in today’s game, tied for the second-most in a game this season. The Cavaliers’ 12 steals this series is the most for a
three-game series this year, eclipsing the previous high of 10 against NC State (April 24-26).

The Cavaliers moved to a perfect 26-0 when holding the opponent to two or fewer runs in a game this season. The 5-1 win marks the 15th time this season that UVa has held the opponent to one or fewer runs.

Sophomore 2B Phil Gosselin stole two bases today to increase his season total to a team-high 24, which places him in sole possession of fourth place in a season all-time at Virginia.

Junior catcher Franco Valdes went 1-for-4 in today’s contest, extending his career-high hitting streak to nine games.

Sophomore CF Jarrett Parker set a school record for at-bats in a season with his 250th in the first inning.

Freshman DH John Hicks went 2-for-3 with a run, an RBI and two doubles, his first career game with two or more two-baggers.

Hicks’ double in the second inning gave Virginia 126 for the season, which is a school record that surpasses the 125 doubles hit in 1985.

 

Attendance Notes

Today’s attendance of 10,110 is the third-largest in the history of Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field behind yesterday’s crowd of 10,323 and the 10,119 fans for the April 9, 2005, SEC tilt against Alabama (the day of the annual Red-Blue spring football game).

The three-day Super Regional attendance is 29,646, which is the highest-ever mark in a three-game series in school history, surpassing the previous high mark of 26,075 set in the 2005 Super Regional vs. Texas.
