College World Series 2011 Scores: Cal Baseball Ends Magical Run In Omaha, Falling To Virginia

The Cal baseball team had enjoyed some incredible success this season, including one of the most incredible comebacks in college baseball history to win their Regional. But all good things must end, and unfortunately for the Bears they ran into a team that was just better than them. The #1 Virginia Cavaliers took out the Bears in a decisive 8-1 victory. Virginia will move on and face South Carolina, needing two wins to advance (SC needs only one).

Cal's Dixon Anderson was chased after three innings of pitching, giving up two runs but needing 66 pitches to retire 9 batters. Virginia's Tyler Wilson started where he left off on Sunday against the Bears, giving up five hits and striking out five in seven and two-third innings of work. Virginia added four runs in the decisive sixth inning and two more in the ninth.

John Barr was 1 for 4 with 2 RBIs, Kenny Swab went 2 for 5, Keith Weman was 2 for 2 with 1 RBI, David Coleman was 1 for 4 with 1 RBI, Chris Taylor was 1 for 2 with 1 RBI. The Bears also gave up three unearned runs Tony Renda drove Cal's only run home in the bottom of the 8th.
