College World Series 2011: Virginia, Danny Hultzen Get Past California

The No. 1 overall seed Virginia Cavaliers beat the California Golden Bears 4-1 Sunday afternoon in Omaha in the first round of the 2011 College World Series.

The second overall pick in the 2011 MLB draft, Danny Hutzen, went 6.1 scoreless innings for Virginia giving up just three hits while striking out six. But the game wasn't decided until after Hultzen left the game. The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the 7th inning when Keith Werman scored on a John Hicks RBI single for the Cavaliers. Steven Proscia later added a sacrifice fly to bring the score to 2-0.

The Cavaliers added another couple of runs in the 8th inning starting with a Jared King RBI triple. Werman then singled in King to make the score 4-0. Werman led the Cavaliers offensively on the day going 2-4 with a RBI and run scored from the nine-hole.

Tyler Wilson picked up the win in relief of Hultzen to improve to 9-0 on the season. He gave up three hits and one run in 2.1 innings out of the bullpen.

Virginia will now play the winner of the South Carolina vs Texas A&M game that is scheduled for Sunday night at 7pm ET. The loser of the game will play California at 2pm ET on Tuesday. The winner will play Virginia at 7pm ET Tuesday night.
