CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- In front of a postseason record crowd at Disharoon Park, No. 7 Virginia jumped out to an early lead against Army and never looked back in a 15-1 NCAA Regional opening win.

The 15 runs scored by Virginia were the most in a postseason game since the last time the Cavaliers opened a regional in Charlottesville in 2016 with 17 runs against William & Mary.

UVA scored six runs in the first inning, the most by the Cavaliers in a single inning of an NCAA Tournament game since 2014, and added four more in the second to take a 1-0 lead. The hot start was highlighted by a two-run homer from Ethan Anderson in the bottom of the first that got the crowd of 5,847 on their feet.

The Cavaliers saw three-hit performances from Griff O'Ferrall, Casey Saucke and Henry Godbout, while Anderson lead the team with 3 RBI on the day.

Virginia also saw a big outing on the mound from starter Brian Edgington, who in his first ever NCAA Tournament game pitched 5.0 innings with four strikeouts and no hits allowed. As a whole, the Cavalier pitching staff only allowed two hits for the first time in the postseason since 2015 in the College World Series.

UVA will face the winner of Oklahoma-East Carolina in the winner's bracket game on Saturday (June 3) at 6 p.m.
