COLUMBIA, S.C. (WAVY) — Devin Ortiz started the day on the mound and finished it at the plate for Virginia, slamming a home run over the left field fence in extras to beat Old Dominion 4-3 and send the Hoos to the NCAA baseball Super Regionals.
It’ll be the 7th Super Regional appearance for UVA and first since 2015. They survived four straight elimination games en route.
Ortiz, who pitched four scoreless innings, had only pitched two innings all innings due to an injured shoulder. He also allowed just one hit.
The loss ended a historic season for Old Dominion, which won their first ever Conference USA baseball title. They finish the season 44-16 overall.
Virginia will now stay in Columbia, South Carolina, to play Dallas Baptist in the Supers.
