Postgame notes: Virginia 7, CSF 5

June, 15, 2009
Here are some tidbits on Virginia's 7-5 win over Cal State Fullerton that eliminated the Titans from the College World Series on Monday. (Compiled by the NCAA.)

• Virginia eliminated both of the Big West's national seeds from the NCAA tournament (No. 6 UC Irvine and No. 2 Cal State Fullerton).

• Monday's victory extended the Cavaliers' own school record with 49 wins, which ranks third nationally behind LSU (52) and Arizona State (50).

• Monday's loss drops Cal State Fullerton to 34-27 in its 16 CWS appearances, as the Titans suffered their fifth consecutive CWS loss dating back to 2006. The five-game streak is the longest CWS drought by the Titans, who had previously lost four in a row between 1988 and 1990.

• Virginia Coach Brian O'Connor is the second coach to pick up his first CWS victory in 2009, joining Arkansas' Dave Van Horn.

• The 2009 CWS marks only the fifth time in Cal State Fullerton's 16 appearances the Titans have gone 0-2. The previous times occurred in 1975, 1982, 1990 and 2007.

• The six runs allowed by Daniel Renken was his highest total of the year. He had not allowed more than four runs in any of his previous 16 starts. Renken had won his last seven starts prior to Monday's loss to Virginia.

• Senior RHP Andrew Carraway improved to 9-1 on the season with his 20th career win. His nine wins this season and 20 wins in his career both tie for sixth on UVa's single-season and career lists. He now has made 73 appearances, which ranks fourth on UVa's career lists.

• Danny Hultzen's stolen base in the seventh inning was the first stolen base allowed by Cal State Fullerton in the NCAA tournament.
