CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Virginia scored three runs in the first inning and that proved to be enough as the Wahoos held on to beat Old Dominion 4-2 Tuesday night.

Rivoli, Eikhoff and Tanner Morris, batting back in the leadoff spot, all recorded two hit games for Virginia.

Five pitchers combined to allow two runs on seven hits. Billy Price made his first career start, striking out two in 2.1 innings pitched. Devin Ortiz came in and through a career-high 2.2 innings of relief to pick up the win. Ortiz allowed three base runners.

Riley Wilson allowed a run in the seventh inning on a Vinnie Pasquantino RBI single, but Kyle Whitten and Andrew Abbott pitched the final 2.1 innings of shutout baseball to close the win.
