Career day for Morris as 'Hoos pound Wagner

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Tanner Morris had the first two-home run game of his career and drove in a career high six runs in Virginia's 14-0 win at home against Wagner on Monday.

After his RBI double got the Wahoos on the board in the first inning, Morris led off the fourth with a long home run beyond the UVA bullpen in right field to make the score 5-0. That ignited a five-run frame for the Wahoos in the fourth that also included RBI singles from Logan Michaels and Alex Tappen, and a bases-loaded walk by Morris to add to his RBI tally.

Morris hit a three-run homer to right-center in the sixth inning to extend UVA's lead to 13-0. Morris now leads UVA with three home runs and 14 RBI through 11 games this season. He finished the game 3-4 with three runs scored.

UVA pounded out 17 hits as a team. Nic Kent finished the day 3-5 with an RBI and a run scored, while Michaels, Nate Eikhoff and Cam Simmons each had a pair of hits. Eikhoff, Michaels and Alex Tappen both drove in a pair of runs.

Mike Vasil (1-1) was the beneficiary of the that run support. The freshman right-hander gave up four hits and struck out four in six innings to pick up his first college win.
